Don’t homophobes know not to get on the wrong side of Cher’s Twitter stream?
Okay so anti-gay types aren’t likely to “follow” the Dark Lady’s tweets, but that didn’t stop the her from lashing out against haters attacking her son Chaz over his participation in the new season of Dancing With The Stars.
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
Can u guys check out sites & give him your support ? BTW …Mothers don’t stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who fk with their children!
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
bet VAST MAJORITY of People will LOVE CHAZ on DWTS! & it’s took Fkg Guts 2! Chaz isn’t exactly the “Gotta Dance Gotta Dance” kinda Guy
Over on the DWTS message board, some mouth breathers felt it was necessary to announce they weren’t going to watch the show because of Chaz Bono’s involvement. (But apparently they will troll the forum.) “My family has watched for years and we have even flown out to California to see it live. We will not be watching this year,” writes karenvking67. “We will filter the show this year and do not support cast choices of transgender, gay or lesbian contestants….”
Paired with dancer Lacey Schwimmer, Bono took to Twitter to thank his superstar mother, adding that, “The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can.“
Bono does have online defenders that didn’t give birth to him, too. “To all who are going to stop watching DWTS bc Chaz is taking part,” writes Terri, the show will do just fine without you bigots.”
We’ll leave with one final
thought tweet from Cher: “I think we can agree that Chaz has the biggest balls of anyone on DWTS.”
Dancing With the Stars returns to ABC on Sept 19.
