Cher Rips into Critics of Chaz Bono on Twitter

Publish date:

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: “@cher 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.”
