Cher Has Every Right to Trash Mitt Romney on Twitter

cherEver since she first started tweeting and updating her Facebook page, pop icon Cher has been an oversharer. Last year, she tweeted her way through Chaz's run on Dancing with the Stars, always coming to her son's defense when the haters would come out in droves. Now, however, it seems she's acquired some haters of her own -- by tweeting about the presidential election.

Yesterday, Cher went on a politically-charged tirade about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, writing on Twitter, "If ROMNEY gets elected I don't know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters." She continued: "TOO HARSH? That's me Holding BACK! They care nothing about the POOR The OLD The SICK The HUNGRY CHILDREN & People striving 4 a Better LIFE ! –"

Although these tweet have since been deleted, they were up long enough to make serious waves.

Unsurprisingly (as we're talking about social media here ... ), Cher's declarations spawned a variety of equally revved-up replies, including some seriously vile ones. She shot back at one hater, "Nice Mouth ! U learn that at Church, Gun Show,or how to press your Klan costume Klass?"

Whoa. Twitter feud ON!

The part that made me really laugh, though, was when one Twitter user told the famous diva that her rant likely cost her half of her followers. (Uh. Suuure.) Her response: "Thank God I Got the half that thinks!" Love it.

By now, anyone following Cher shouldn't be surprised if she comes out with passionately liberal tirades like this. It's who she is, and if you're not on the same page and you can't deal, don't follow her. It's as simple as that. You'll never catch me following Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, or Michelle Malkin. Why not? Because I have zero interest in getting stressed out by their conservative drivel. Sure, it's only fair to attempt to get a balanced digest of news from both sides of the aisle, but sorry, Twitter -- or at least the Twitter accounts of talking heads and celebrities -- isn't the place to do that. 

If those who disagree with Cher have no interest in reading her honest opinions on the election, they can click unfollow. After all, she has every right to only tweet to the "half that thinks" ... like her.

Do you follow people on Twitter or Facebook who you vehemently disagree with? Why?

If she stands by what she tweeted, why did she delete it?

LOL! Her gun show, klan costume response was hilarious. Sometimes it's nice to see someone just rage at the morons and not be political correct. Fabulous. Rock on, Cher, rock on.

Is she speaking as someone who knows how to raise successful,  happy kids, or just a citizen?

@mustbegrace I am pretty sure she was speaking as Cher. As far as I know she is a citizen who has raised a sucessful and happy child. Pretty awesome if you ask me. But no I would not follow her on Twitter because I don't find her to be relevant to my life at all.

She has every right to speak her mind, just as people who speak against her has every right to do so.

Bottom line is: You're free to say what you want, when you want. She shouldnt have deleted her comments because they were basically accurate. Even if they werent, its HER opinion! Who cares! Like blasting her would suddenly make her go "Oh, my bad!"


I, personally, dont even think I'll even be voting this time around. Not much to choose from O.o

I love how liberals point their fingers at conservatives and accuse them of being hate-mongering biggots and then are caught saying things like this. I'll believe that conservatives hate women when the tea party has to set up rape-free zones much in the same way they have to at occupy protests. Why aren't homosexuals outraged at the fact that liberals like Cher keep calling tea party members "tea-baggers" when that term was originally coined to describe a sexual act conducted between two men? Using it in the manner she is using the term implies that the act is gross. So who's the homophobe now? She even states that she's holding back on her comments which means she's thinking way more hateful thoughts than what she wrote. How are conservatives full of hate when liberals are constantly on record saying things like this? Talk about hypocrisy.
