Cher berates ‘bigots’ attack on son’s role in TV show
Cher has criticised the “stupid bigots” who have attacked the casting of her transgender son, Chaz Bono, on US show Dancing With The Stars.
The singer defended Bono, who underwent a female-to-male sex change last year, saying “it took guts” to participate in the celebrity ballroom dancing show.
“Chaz is being viciously attacked on blogs and messageboards about being on DWTS!” she said via her Twitter page.
She urged fans to pledge their support for Bono on other social media sites.
Cher wrote: “I support him no matter what he chooses to do. It took courage to do DWTS!
