Cher‘s Twitter feed is the eighth wonder of the world. Largely incomprehensible but always entertaining, the pop legend spews out stream of consciousness tweets about everything from pop culture to politics. On Friday night (November 15) after a glass or three of pinot gris (I’m guessing), the “Woman’s World” diva picked up her phone and called Sarah Palin a “DUMB C WORD”.
She didn’t give a further explanation but she’s Cher and she doesn’t have to. The politician kept quiet about the issue until today (November 20) when she updated her Facebook with a post describing the rant as irrational and linked to her brother’s response. He wrote: “I was sorry to hear that you tweeted out such vile comments about my little sister yesterday.” Fair enough.
“It’s sad because Sarah has never had a harsh word to say about you,” he continued. “In fact, our grandmother was one of your biggest fans.” Their grandmother? Is this a Republican’s idea of shade? Cher is a veteran but she hasn’t been around that long. See Cher’s tweet and the Palins’ replies after the jump.
Cher’s initial tweet:
