Virulently far-left singer Cher’s longstanding “white savior” complex has finally reached a level so noxiously high that even her most fervent fans can’t take it anymore.
The singer, known for spending four years screeching nonsensically on Twitter about then-President Donald Trump’s alleged “Hatred for Ppl Who Live In [the United States] & are Not Lily White” (long story), tweeted on Friday about George Floyd.
To hear her tell it, had she been present when the now-deceased Minneapolis criminal suspect was apprehended by authorities last May, perhaps she “Could’ve Helped.”
Floyd died during the police encounter for reasons that still remain unclear, though the prevailing (though disputed) narrative is that now-fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin killed him by pressing his knee on the suspect’s neck.
Chauvin’s trial started Monday.
View Cher’s tweet below:
Was talking With Mom
& She Said “I Watched Trial Of Policeman Who Killed George Floyd,& Cried”.
“Mom,I Know This Is Gonna Sound CRAZY,But..
I Kept Thinking …..Maybe If I’d Been There,…I Could’ve Helped😔

The tweet was not well received. While it hasn’t technically been ratioed yet — the retweets (about 6,000) far outnumbered the comments (about 2,000) as of Saturday morning — and it’s inspired nothing but backlash.
Take the retweets. Though it’s usually assumed that retweets are meant as an endorsement of one’s tweet, the retweets of this one don’t come off that way.
Just delete immediately pls. We won’t even screenshot https://t.co/zuUJ9VTt2d

The direct comments are the same, with one fan writing that while she thinks Cher is “great and all,” this isn’t supposed to be about her.
“Don’t make it about you. And don’t inadvertently insult the traumatized witnesses who WERE there and did their damndest to save his life,” the critic wrote.
Um….Cher, I think you’re great and all, but this ain’t it. George Floyd’s murder isn’t about you. Don’t make it about you. And don’t inadvertently insult the traumatized witnesses who WERE there and did their damndest to save his life.

There were people there that tried to do something. What is anyone going to do with numerous armed police?
There’s some white privilege right there if you think you could have done something. White savior guilt is toxic and offensive.

While I understand what you’re trying to say, this just isn’t it. This lacks awareness of what is going on, and promotes the white savior complex. You are demeaning and degrading the people that WERE THERE that could not save this man from being murdered.

It is a savior complex. Her whole tweet is a self-serve. she may have had good intentions but it reads as focusing on herself while George is her background damsel in distress. This isn’t the kind of help that does anything. There are many other better ways to bring awareness.

Cher is going to save Blk people bc she’s a strong rich white and blk people can’t save themselves. According to Libs, black people need them. She said “blk”, so don’t get mad at me. She’s the chosen savior. She said it. 🥴

This is significantly underplaying what witnesses who testified TRIED to do to stop his death. There have been MULTIPLE testimonies of everyone from a firefighter to an MMA fighter to a senior man who attempted to diffuse the situation. Singing songs doesn’t erase racism, Cher. pic.twitter.com/oATlfe7kOw

Cher is perhaps most famous for the classic song “Believe,” in which she sings about “life after love.”
Responding to the singer’s latest tweet, British actress Kele Kelechnekoff suggested that Cher must have written it after “believing in crack after love.”
You must’ve typed this after believing in crack after love.

Cher, whom you may have noticed writes her tweets like a child, is a radically far-left zealot who has apparently bought hook, line and sinker into “woke” propaganda.
She, like most “woke” white liberals, seems to suffer from a “white savior” complex rooted in the soft bigotry of low expectations.
It’s this same bigotry that inspired Teen Vogue magazine to implore white people to “use your privilege as a white person to protect people of color” two years ago.

It’s this same bigotry that earlier that year inspired “woke” actress Debra Messing to retweet a billboard that claimed “A Black Vote For Trump Is Mental Illness.”
The insinuation was that she, as an apparently superior life form, has the authority to tell black people how to think. The bigotry wasn’t well received.
