The fact that Chaz Bono is a contestant on Dancing With The Stars is making anti-gay Americans very upset. It's so bad that some people are saying hateful things about Chaz and petitioning to get the controversial transgended man removed, but Cher is not having it!
The 65-year-old icon has come to the defense of her son in a series of angry posts on her Twitter.com page. Taking to the site on Wednesday night, she writes, "Chaz is being viciously attacked on blogs & message boards about being on DWTS! This is still America right? It took guts to do it."
"I support him no matter what he chooses to do! God! Will there always be haters! It took COURAGE to do DWTS! Chaz has an unlimited supply. Can u guys check out sites & give him your support?... He is such a good person inside (with a) lot a heart."
And Bono was clearly moved by his mother's words, tweeting, "Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can."
David Arquette, Ricki Lake, Ron Artest, Rob Kardashian and more will also compete on the 13th season of the show, which is set to premiere on September 19th.
Props to Star Pulse.
