Aside from crazyface Ted Nugent, few celebrities have come out in favor of presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Tinseltown types are more likely to veer left, but few have gone off on conservative politicians the way singer Cher did this morning, as the well-known star tweeted, “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.”
About a half hour earlier, Cher responded to a Twitter user who said she must have lost half of her fans. This possibility didn’t seem to bother Cher, who wrote, “Thank God I Got the half that thinks !” We’re not sure what the initial spat was all about, but no matter how famous she may be, she does not have the luxury of taking that kind of approach to her following.
Whether she realized it or not, Cher sparked a brawl in the Twitter world:
It’s safe to say they’ve all brought out the worst in each other, and Cher did not deserve to have the “c” word hurled in her direction, but one would expect her to be above silly Twittersphere fights, which are awful uses of any person’s time. Without sounding too much like a fifth grader, though, she started it!
