Cher Defends Son Chaz Bono Against ‘Stupid Bigots’
Oh, how I love Cher. No matter that her son is a 42-year-adult; if someone attacks her boy, Cher kicks into mama bear mode. And I just love her for it!
In case you haven’t heard, Cher’s son Chaz Bono is a contestant on the new season of Dancing With The Stars, along with the likes of Rob Kardashian and TV hosts Ricki Lake and Nancy Grace. So apparently a bunch of mean people wrote mean things about Chaz, who’s transgender, on the Dancing With The Stars message boards, to which Cher replied via Twitter:
“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.”
“Mothers don’t stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who fk with their children!”
How awesome is Cher? This doesn’t feel like some Hollywood stunt but rather a mother who is truly outraged over her child being attacked (and what kind of mother wouldn’t be?). It is lovely to see.
Meanwhile, Chaz tweeted a nice little note of his own earlier today:
“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.”
The new season of DWTS premiers September 19, and Chaz is paired with 23-year-old Lacey Schwimmer. We wish him best of luck!
