Cher backs off criticizing Bernie Sanders, says she’d ‘rather be dead’ than be a Republican

Cher is petrified of being labeled a conservative.

The musician and outspoken Donald Trump critic recently took to her Twitter to criticize Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for saying he would allow dangerous criminals like the Boston Marathon bomber to vote in elections.

“Does Bernie Sanders Really Believe Ppl In Prison Who Are Murderers⁉️ Rapists⁉️ Child Molesters⁉️ BOSTON BOMBERS …STILL DESERVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE⁉️” tweeted the musician.

After receiving a heavy amount of pushback from her liberal followers, Cher reassured everyone that she is in no way a conservative.

The “Moonstruck” star deleted her tweet and responded to a user by saying she was having a “knee jerk reaction” to Sanders’ words. She also partially blamed the tweet on a lack of sleep.

“Do you really think 2.2 million people in prison in American fall into those 4 categories? Americans are 4.4% of the world population but make up 22% of the worlds prisoners. This problem is deeply systemic and blocking their vote absolutely keeps the cycle going,” tweeted a user who obviously completely missed the point of criticism against Sanders’ words.

Cher responded by saying, “The musician replied, You’re right & I Know Those Stats,but When Bernie Said Boston Bombers,Murderers, Terrible Ppl Should vote,I Had Knee Jerk Reaction & 4got times I Cried when Innocent ppl were freed after 25yrs.most ppl of color. It Shames Me 2 see (Again) How Angst,Hubris & no sleep=Disaster.”

Along with her original tweet, Cher also deleted a message responding to criticism that said, “TERRORIST KILLED INNOCENT PPL. IM SICK OF BEING NAILED 2 CROSS BECAUSE U PPL THINK IM A RACIST‼️IM NOT GOING TO DEFEND MYSELF‼️I CARE 4 ALL PPL,TRY TO HELP ALL PPL. Excuse The Fk Out Of Me If I don’t want ,Murders, Rapists, & CHILD MOLESTERS of every color to vote.”

Cher also said later than revealed that she would “rather be dead” than a Republican.

After someone tweeted that Cher is turning into a Republican, the singer and actress responded, “No,Rather Be DEAD Than RED [as in a Republican]. Heard Bernie Say Boston Bombers,Murderers,Etc.& Went Knee Jerk In2 Hyperdrive Anxiety,Without Waiting,Or Thinking Txt Through.I Know Stats.I fkd Up.I Believe U ‘STAND &BE COUNTED OR SIT & BE NOTHING’
I Didn’t Think,I Didn’t Wait, I DIDN’T ‘STAND.'”

This is not the first time Cher has had to walk back on a statement that was deemed by many to be right-leaning. She previously tweeted about cities like Los Angeles needing to take care of American citizens before illegal immigrants. It was a tweet that earned her a shoutout from President Donald Trump.

“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants,but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN.WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” wrote Cher.

The president later shared the singer’s tweet and wrote, “I finally agree with @Cher!”

Cher responded by calling Trump an “ignorant thug.”

The pure desperation Cher displays when she tries to walk back these right-leaning statements shows just how intolerant the left has become. People like Cher feel they have to immediately and aggressively walk back on common sense and moderate thoughts for fear of being a labeled a Republican by their fellow “woke” liberals.
