Cher has issued an apology after she ruffled feathers with comments about George Floyd.
“I know Ppl Apologize When They’re In a Jam,BUT TO GOD,IM TRULY SORRY If I Upset AnyOne In Blk Community.I Know My [heart],” the Grammy award-winner said.
Her apology comes after she came under fire Friday (April 2) for saying she believes she could have saved Floyd’s life.
In now deleted tweet she wrote: “Was talking With Mom & She Said “I Watched Trial Of Policeman Who Killed George Floyd,& Cried”. I Said “Mom,I Know This Is Gonna Sound CRAZY,But.. I Kept Thinking …..Maybe If I’d Been There,…I Could’ve Helped”
It didn’t take long for social media users to react in her mentions.
The following day she appeared to double down writing: “Wrestled With This Twt, Because I Thought some ppl wouldn’t understand, Or Believe an Entertainer Could have Honest emotions about a human Being, suffering & Dying, even if It’s Only Shown On tv. You Don’t Know What I’ve Done,Who I Am,Or What I Believe.I CAN,I HAVE,& I WILL..HELP”
