    Cher is known to be a long-standing and ardent critic of Trump, but this time she appears to have massively shocked her social media audience after unleashing a “sick” slur-laden pro-impeachment tirade against the president.

    Cher took to Twitter to express a wish to see President Trump sexually assaulted like a “Toy Boy of Big Bubba” in prison before deleting the post, claiming it was “a stupid joke.”

    The comment came as part of a social media campaign targeted against the president calling for his impeachment, appearing shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller made his first public comments on Wednesday on his two-year investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, where he announced that it was “not an option” for his office to charge a sitting president.

    Hours after deleting her post, Cher admitted she had gone a bit “too far” and needed to “check herself,” while insisting that she was not apologizing for her escapade.

    In a series of tweets that followed Mueller’s speech, the 73-year-old singer branded the president “a liar”, “a racist” and “a crook” that is prepared to go to great lengths in order “to win,” and also accused the president of “stealing money for the poor.” Her  verbal tirade culminated in the following – now deleted- tweet, most of which was written in capital letters and heavily laden with emojis:

    “Been Giving IMPEACHMENT MUCH Thought Throughout The Day,& I Would *love* 2 See trump Impeached,Brought 2 Trial, *locked* Up In *prison* & Toy Boy Big Bubba!! My Delight In Seeing trump Run Out Of Town On a Rail, Is More Likely *heart* over *brain*. I WANT WHAT'S BEST 4 DEMOCRATS AND DEMOCRACY.”

    The slurs wouldn’t go unnoticed on social networks, with Twitterians rushing en masse to explicitly state their disgust over the comments:

    However, Cher’s fame wasn't ignored either, with one person saying that celebs engaging in politics is a common thing today due to their overall loss of relevance:

    Sick comments countering Cher also appeared:

    It is not the first time that the outspoken singer has lashed out at Trump: as recently as March, Cher branded Trump “evil and up to his neck in corruption,” while back in 2015, she claimed he was as “dumb as a mentally challenged fence post.”
