Do You Believe in Tweets After Tweets? Cher Apologises Again After Claiming She ‘Could’ve Helped’ George Floyd

The 74-year old singer, actress, and television personality infuriated some social media users last week after appearing to suggest that she could have saved the late George Floyd if she had been at the scene during his arrest in Minneapolis on 25 May, 2020. Some African-Americans accused her of having a “white saviour complex.”

Cher has taken to Twitter to issue another apology for her comments about the ongoing George Floyd trial.

“These last days have been hard, soul searching, painful ones,” she wrote. “My wording was wrong/imprecise. When I’m over-emotional I should wait, walk away, then tweet. I felt sorrow, and did wish I could have helped George. Sometimes you feel what you can’t explain in a tweet. Sorry is all I have,” the singer wrote in emotional, impassioned, and grammar mistake-filled tweet.
