Cher is watching the trial of Derek Chauvin like so many others. She might have been better off not tweeting about it.

The famous diva tweeted out to reveal a conversation she had with her mother about the trial of the police officer who killed George Floyd. Cher then said that she told her mother that she could have helped if she was there.

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

This tweet from Cher brought on a pretty large storm of backlash. It certainly wasn’t what she intended, but Cher’s notifications blew up in a bad way after posting that tweet.


Some people called Cher out for having a “Savior Complex.” Others wondered why everyone else was so angry at Cher. Either way, this controversy caused her name to trend for a reason other than her entertainment career.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
