Cher Goes Off on Mitt Romney, "Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters"

by at . Comments

Cher has never been one to mince words.

Still, it was a little surprising to see just her pummel presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney out of the blue via Twitter Tuesday, only to delete a couple of the more inflammatory Tweets hours later.

What did the iconic pop star and Oscar winner say?

Cher and Mitt

"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 Tweeted.

That remark by the 65-year-old attracted a variety of responses, many shocked, and some more profane and negative than others. Cher replied to one hater:

"Nice Mouth ! U learn that at Church, Gun Show,or how to press your Klan costume Klass?" (That, and the nasty tweet directed at her, are still up.)

To another user who called her an "atten.whore," Cher fired back, "Actually I'm Not & if u Dislike Me SO.. Get Off My Site it Cant B Fun 4 U !"

Another Cher tweet that disappeared, however, was this:

"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!"

A number of fans chimed in to support the Oscar winner, as well, some apologizing for those who were giving her such a hard time and some inquiring why she was re-tweeting some of the nastiest messages sent to her.

Her message later in the day:

"Hi Lovelies!hope U R having GREAT Day or Nite! Sorry I Let The Dogs Out, But I Should Have Remembered 1 must watch what They Say These Days!"

When asked if she was saddened by people's crass comments about her political views, she replied, "No Sweetheart Just 'STRONG ENOUGH'!!"

After a tough primary fight, Romney is expected to clinch the GOP nomination for president and face off with Barack Obama in the 2012 election.

Somehow we're fairly convinced which way Cher is voting.

What is up with the all the closed-minded wackos who comment on this site? Seriously, out of all the celeb gossip sites, is this the one that all the rednecks and skinheads and home-schooled creationists like? It sure seems that way. (But I also realize that normal, sane, logical people have better things to do than spew craziness. I am just over reading these nasty comments)

I wonder how much of her money she spends on the poor, the sick etc. last time i looked she lived in A mansion and spends thousands of bucks a week on her beauty regime. hypocrite of the first order. She did not accept her daughter being gay. her conservative father did.

Another Hollywood liberal rag simply spewing nasty comments. Yeah. Nothing new here. Gosh. If only their "Anointed One" had a real record to run on, huh? Maybe...just maybe folks like Cher would have something of substance to share with America. (sigh) Yep. If only....
