Cher possibly has the best Twitter clapbacks: ‘Then keep your eyes open bitch’

Film Premiere The Promise

Cher is one of the many, many celebrities to take to Twitter and social media to vent frustrations over Donald Trump’s decision to end DACA, also known as the Dreamer program. Basically, Trump and Jeff Sessions have decided that the hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought to this country as children, who have lived and worked here most of their lives, they all need to leave. Cher has been tweeting about DACA a lot this week. This was one tweet she sent out:

It’s not really a case where Dreamers need a place to stay – they’re not refugees, they’re immigrants who have lived in America for years and they already consider America their home. But still, Cher’s heart is in the right place. Someone didn’t think so though. A tweeter named Brenda Webb, whose online profile reads “Single Mom,Believer in Jesus,Positive person,Politics annoy me-Just can’t help it!!,” decided to come for Cher. Brenda’s Twitter account has now been made private, probably because she came for Cher and lost. Brenda tweeted back at Cher: “Sure you will Cher.. I’ll believe it when I see it!” This is what Cher tweeted back:

This twitter moment was brought to you by DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT, BITCH.

    Cher won Twitter today.

  2. Jerusha says:

    I occasionally peek at Cher’s twitter. You don’t mess with her-she’s ferocious and will snap back. And the woman deleted that tweet and went private on her twitter.

  3. Peeking in says:

    I don’t think Cher means to take them in right now, but if/when they’re ordered deported, and may need to go into hiding.

  4. velourazure says:

    It took Cher a minute to figure out Twitter, but she has obviously now attained master status. Go Cher!

  5. Tiffany says:

    That was perfection. That is all.

  6. slowsnow says:

    This is pure gold.

  7. Deb says:

    Cher’s Twitter is always gold. Remember this is the woman who called David Letterman an asshole on live TV long before it became commonplace to call out an asshole on live TV. Cher does not suffer fools. She’s been ahead of the curve as an outspoken feminist for a long time. 👏🏻

    • ike says:

      I remember that. It wasn’t too long after, Shirley MacLaine was on, and she said “Cher’s right. You are an asshole”. Hahaha.

  8. KikiGee says:

    Really? This is the way we respond to those who disagree with us?
    Sorry, but I don’t care who she is (and, yes, I’m a fan, have the albums), but in my view that’s a low-class way to respond.
    I guess winning an argument these days is about who can give the snarkiest comment.
    So much for taking the high road.

    • Tiffany says:

      I was going to give it a dozen comments before someone came with the high road theme. I am out a Coke.

    • redsolesista says:

      First off it wasn’t a disagreement. It was a personal judgement. There a difference.

      Low Class?

      I’m trying to figure out when “taking the high road” was a law. What the F does that even mean? Who determined what that means? Who determines for another person they need to take it? I am finding in the last year sometimes taking the “high road” is an excuse for complacency, passivity and avoid confrontation at all cost. It also is sometimes a “I am a better person than you”.

      Sure everything doesn’t need a response, but I am not going to be the one to tell someone else whether they should or should not respond. I also am not going to tell them how to respond to things aimed at themselves.

      That women judged and came for Cher on her own volition.
      Cher responded in the manner SHE saw fit.

      STFU and staying in your lane is always free.

    • Marley31 says:

      Taking the high road was the response . and she responded the way she seems as if she would respond truthfully and honestly by telling her to keep her eyes open bitch. You can’t see anything if you keep your eyes closed lol and in her opinion the lady was being a B. So there you go. All I can say is I love Cher she’s so badass

    • MissMarierose says:

      Brenda wasn’t exactly taking the high road with her smarmy response. If Brenda can’t take it, she shouldn’t have dished it out.

    • Jerusha says:

      Anyone who goes on Cher’s twitter and takes a shot at her and doesn’t expect a scorching reply has simply not been paying attention. I don’t respond to the dicks who parrot their script at me, but good for Cher. Wimpy Dems? Not her!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  9. Anna says:

    Forever my Armenian godess! <3

  10. Indiana Joanna says:

    Lapsed Catholic here and I know this sounds naive. But all the people who profess to be Jesus-like are clueless about their hypocrisy. More than anyone, those people with their bullying and justification for excluding huge sectors of our society in the name of “Christ” and “Jesus” make me sick.

    Good for Cher.

    • MissMarierose says:


    • Lyla says:

      I don’t understand why people need to put “believer in Christ” or something to that extent in their bio.

      Anyway, I agree with the hypocrisy. Yesterday in saw a tweet by a pastor or minister that said rescinding DACA was a good thing because we need to think about the US first and all that. So someone responded to him with the Lev 19:34 “the foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native born. Love them as yourself.” Of course the maga crowd responded to that saying you can’t cherry pick bible quotes. Eyeroll.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        Why not? The MAGA crowd is quick to cherry pick when it suits their purposes. But anyhoo…here are few more Bible quotes these so-called Christians seem to have forgotten:

        “Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.” – 1 John 2:9

        “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” – James 2:14-26

        “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?” – 1 John 3:16-17

        Then again, if you need a 2000 year old book to tell you how not to be an asshole, there is something quite wrong with you in the first place.

      • Indiana Joanna says:

        @Lyla. You said it perfectly. Why is being a “Jesus believer” even relevant except to pad their bio? But then I know plenty of dodgy people who want you to know first thing that they are tight with Jesus.

      • Meghan M says:

        They put it in their bio to say: “I’m a good and moral person, most likely better than you.” It’s pathetic.

      • Delilah says:

        @Bearcatlawyer… so think I may just have to blow up, print and laminate those verses. Thank you! This is a tremendous public service you have done.

    • OG MJ says:

      My parents are both lapsed Catholic weirdos in their sixties, and even with all of their baby boomer entitled flakiness, I am so grateful they didn’t pass the religion on. I’m a generation removed and that weird sexual guilt still affects me. I’m spiritual and accepting of others’ beliefs, but dang. Does it always have to be our fault?

      I guess I’m saying I admire the strength it takes to think critically and ditch your original community for the sake of reason.

      Late night convoluted replies lol.

  11. nicegirl says:

    Just joined twitter myself yesterday. I expect it will take me a minute to get it as well.

    I am going to follow Cher now.

  12. lucy2 says:

    And Brenda learned an important lesson that day…NEVER come for Cher.

  13. Lightpurple says:

    One does not simply walk into Mordor and one does not simply come for Cher on Twitter.

  14. Rapunzel says:

    The woman called Cher a liar. She earned the clapback.

  15. JC says:

    Since this is the place to be bitchy about celebrities, I’ll comment on her appearance.

    It would be fascinating to track her appearance over the course of her long career. I first became a huge fan when she and Sonny released I Got You, Babe, in those bellbottoms, caveman vests and furs, etc. So outrageous at the time—but Cher looked beautiful.

    Then came the tv show era. It was an amazing transformation from her earlier iteration. She was chic, gorgeous, edgy, model-thin, sophisticated.

    But now, the work, the fillers are taking a toll. Her face has that John Kerry, melting mashed potatoes look. And, her makeup and clothes look clownish—and probably detract from the points she wants to make.

  16. Tim H says:

    Haha! Cher is pure gold

  17. KiddVicious says:

    Cher has always been outspoken and I have no doubt she would have said it to the woman’s face had this happened IRL and not on Twitter.

  18. L says:

    It’s the “Snap out of it!” moment when she slaps Nicholas Cages character in Moonstruck movie lol

    • LADIABLA says:

      Aww….I love Moonstruck…such a good movie 🙂

      “Love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and DIE. The storybooks are bullshit! Now I want you to come upstairs with me and GET in my bed!”

      • magnoliarose says:

        It is old fashioned to me but in a good way. In the olden days when Nic Cage was a real live human being.

  19. trh says:

    Letterman was always a bully and Cher was one of the few to hold her own as a guest.
    She’s a goddess:

  20. adastraperaspera says:

    I am always here for Cher! [please imagine this in capital letters followed with heart emojis]

  21. Lucy says:

    This woman is an international treasure. Am I the only one who feels she’s underappreciated?

    • MacScore says:

      Lucy, I agree! Over the years I have really come to appreciate her more and more. Let’s hope she gets more than a few mentions on the new series of Will & Grace, too!

  22. jferber says:

    Cher for president! She has kept it real forever. Her response was everything.
