Cher defends Chaz Bono in Twitter frenzyBreaking News Thursday, September 1st, 2011
In wake of Chaz Bono’s appearance on the ever-popular ABC hit “Dancing with the Stars,” Cher has stepped up to his defense via Twitter amidst “vicious attacks” on blogs on message boards.
Bono, who has famously documented his sexual reassignment surgery on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), has garnered criticism over his appointment to DWTS, due in part to unfair discrimination since he is a transgendered person.
“Mothers don’t stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who (mess) with their children!” Cher posted.
Good Morning America announced Wednesday that Bono would be paired up with crowd-favorite Lacey Schwimmer, where Bono will learn a series of ballroom dances for the ultimate chance at a reality TV win.
Bono expressed excitement over his new post at DWTS, exclaiming, “I’m the luckiest guy around!” on his Twitter page.
“Thanks for all your support mom,” he wrote. “The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can.”
