Liberal diva Cher has been hit with a lawsuit for racial discrimination, allegedly telling her choreographer to hire more white dancers.

The lawsuit says that when Cher was auditioning dancers for her 2014 “Dressed to Kill” tour, she told choreographer Kevin Wilson, “We have too much color onstage” when he wanted to hire a particular “minority female dancer,” according to TMZ.

Wilson claims that he was told “not to cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour,” and instead to find a white blonde.

There are also allegations of a cover up of a sexual assault by one of the male dancers who went to a hotel room with a fan after a June show in Louisville. The dancer was kept in the show, while three “whistleblowers” were fired, TMZ reported.

Wilson and dancer Suzanne Easter are African-American and are claiming racial discrimination, while Jacquelyn Dowsett Ballinger, 42, is claiming age discrimination, MSN reported.

The singer says the allegations are false.

“These are ridiculous allegations,” Cher’s publicist Liz Rosenberg told the media. “They couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Cher’s lawyer called the alleged racial statement “untrue and categorically denied,” adding, “to attribute such a statement to Cher is absurd.”

As always, there were the usual Twitter responses, like these tweets:
