Celebrity offspring/author/transgender activist Chaz Bono says that he’s received mostly positive support since it was announced that he’ll be competing on Dancing with the Stars, but a vocal minority have taken to the internet to express outrage.
And hell hath no fury like a mother defending her child, and when that mother is Cher? Forget about it! Cher hit Twitter to fire back at the “haters”, snapping:

And Cher isn’t the only one who has Chaz’s back. His DWTS partner, Lacey Schwimmer, slams the negativity, saying,
“It’s disappointing. It’s not cool. We’re all taught to not bully, or harass, and treat everyone as equals yet all these people are doing exactly the opposite… It’s 2011, let’s evolve a little bit here.”
