Cher Rips into Critics of Chaz Bono on Twitter

| by Michael Allen

Cher rushed to Chaz Bono’s defense on Twitter today, incensed over some sarcastic internet comments about Chaz's decision to sign up with ‘Dancing With The Stars.’

Bono, who recently underwent a female-to-male sex change, will compete on the ABC show with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer.

Writing on Twitter today, Cher fired out several tweets:

“Lovelies! Chaz is Being Viciously Attacked on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS!”

“This is Still America right? It took guts 2 do it.”

“I support him no matter what he chooses 2do!'”

“God! will there always be haters! It took COURAGE 2 do dwts! TG Chaz has an Unlimited supply.”

She urged people to show their support for Chaz, posting: “Can u guys check out sites & give him your support?”

Chaz appeared to be grateful (if not mortified) for his mother's support and tweeted back: [email protected] Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can.”
