Cher defends son Chaz Bono: “[I] bet vast majority of people will LOVE CHAZ on ‘DWTS’”
It’s very disappointing that there are people who have a problem with Chaz Bono
participating in the new season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars
because he is a transgender male.
His famous mother, Cher, took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend her child with the late Sonny Bono (pictured below).
Cher initially struggled with Bono’s transition from the female Chastity to the male Chaz but she clearly loves and supports her child.
“Chaz is Being Viciously Attacked on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS!This is Still America right ? It took guts 2 do it.” Cher wrote in one Tweet then added: “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.”
Cher then called on her fans and Twitter followers to publicly show their support for Chaz: “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!”
She concluded by Tweeting she bets the “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.”
