Cher Is Facing Serious Criticism For This ‘Insensitive’ Tweet About The Istanbul Airport Attack

Twitter users are calling for her to take it down.


Since a bomb exploded in Istanbul’s Ataturk airport late on Tuesday evening, killing 36 and injuring 147, celebrities have been tweeting their support for the victims of the attack.

One such celebrity offering up their condolences was Cher, but she’s since been slammed for her message of support.

While her message, “We all pray for innocent ppl in Turkey Airport” seemed innocent enough, it was Cher’s use of bomb emojis that has angered Twitter users.

Many users said that her use of emojis was insensitive given the context:
