Protective mom Cher came to son Chaz Bono's defense after he was eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars"
Chaz Bono admitted he chafed a bit when "Dancing with the Stars" judge Bruno Tonioli compared him to "an Ewok" and "a penguin," but that's nothing compared to how his mom felt.
After Bono was eliminated in last night's competition, Cher took to her Twitter page to vent on the Tonioli and the judges (with one notable exception) for their treatment of her son.
Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes!" wrote Cher. "Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT."
Cher then took aim at Len Goodman, who famously clashed with dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy the previous night, saying, “As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man!"
However, Cher did express her thanks to judge Carrie Ann Inaba, whom she felt was fair and kind towards Bono.
“Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out,” wrote Cher, before adding: “The Chick is beautiful & Polite ! The Men suck"
