Elijah Blue Allman, Cher’s son with her second husband Greg Allman, apologized this week for his mother’s recent slur of Sarah Palin.
On her Twitter feed last month, Cher referred to Palin — the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate — as a “dumb C-word.”
Following this slur, Chuck Heath, Jr., Sarah Palin’s brother, posted the following open letter on Facebook to the former pop diva and actress:
I was sorry to hear that you tweeted out such vile comments about my little sister yesterday. It’s sad because Sarah has never had a harsh word to say about you. In fact, our grandmother was one of your biggest fans. Have a good night, Chuck.”
According to BizPac Review, “It’s unknown whether Cher got the message, but her half-Allman son did. And the half-Allman side showed, with a touch of class — and more than a little embarrassment it seemed. Apologizing for your mother can’t be easy.”
Earlier this week, Elijah Blue Allman — who is a musician like his dad — tweeted an apology to Sarah Palin and her family for what he deemed the “ugly remarks.” Chuck Heath in turn tweeted his thanks for Elijah Blue’s statement.
Disagreements about policy issues are fair game. Yet, with all the talk of diversity and tolerance, those on the left side of the ideological spectrum seem to be conducting their own rhetorical war on women of the politically conservative persuasion in very personally insulting terms.
For example, Martin Bashir quit (or was asked to leave) the liberal MSNBC network on Wednesday after he was engulfed in controversy about disgusting comments he made about Palin. Last week, in another instance of what some might call hate speech, a Democrat lawmaker in New Hampshire on social media rudely compared GOP Congressional candidate Marilinda Garcia to Kim Kardashian.
As The Inquisitr recently reported, Cher just dropped $2.1 million on a new Beverly Hills mansion.
