Cher - Cher Clashes With Twitter Followers Over Political Views

Pop superstar Cher clashed with her Twitter.com followers on Tuesday (08May12) after ranting about U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and slamming him as "racist" and "homophobic".
Romney is expected to be named the official Republican Party presidential candidate at its convention in August (12), pitting him against incumbent President Barack Obama for the 2012 election.
But Cher has made it clear she won't be voting for the Republican when Americans go to the polls in November (12) because she strongly disagrees with his conservative views on immigration, same-sex marriage and abortion.
She tweeted, "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 (sic)."
Her Twitter attack caused tension with some of her fans online.
When one follower called her an "irrational atten. (attention) w**re (sic)", Cher fired back, "Actually I'm Not & if u Dislike Me SO.. Get Off My Site it Cant B Fun 4 U (sic)!"
Another commented, "Ouch!!! Bet you just lost half of your fans", prompting Cher to reply, "Thank God I Got the half that thinks!"
And she remained defiant as she was bombarded with angry responses to her outspoken views, adding: "God its (sic) hysterical what crawls out of woodwork if someone speaks their mind! Obviously i don't care what u think so knock yourselves out (sic)."
