Bette Midler Somehow Trolled North Carolina For Both Its Title Game Loss And Its House Bill 2

Update: Midler has admitted she made a mistake with her earlier tweet, saying she shouldn't have lumped UNC's student-athletes in with the state's legislature. "My bad," she says. 

">@UNC with the knuckleheads in the State Legislature!

Oops, my bad! Sorry Tarheels, I shouldn't lump the kids @UNC with the knuckleheads in the State Legislature!

Earlier: Singer-songwriter Bette Midler is a bit of a loose cannon on Twitter, as we've found out numerous times in the past year. Thursday, she randomly took a shot at North Carolina - both the state and its public school's basketball program.

Midler, clearly taking exception to the state's controversial passing of the House Bill 2, joked that North Carolina should have spent more time practicing and less time worry about who's using which bathroom. It's obviously tongue-in-cheek, but it's still an odd post.
