After it was announced that Chaz Bono would appear on the upcoming season of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ as the show’s first transgendered contestant, some people took to message boards to spew a lot of negativity about it.

The ultra-conservative Media Research Center even claimed casting Bono was “part of Hollywood’s insistence on tearing down traditional families.”

Regardless, Chaz has gotten a lot of love from plenty of other sources, including his very famous mother, Cher.

On Wednesday, the legendary diva, 65, took to her Twitter account and wrote, “Chaz is being viciously attacked on blogs and message boards about being on DWTS! This is still America right? It took guts to do it … I support him no matter what he chooses to do … It took courage to do ‘DWTS’! Thank God Chaz has an unlimited supply.”

And later, she took up the cause of mama bears everywhere by writing, “Mothers don’t stop getting angry with stupid bigots who f*** with their children!”

Let the haters hate. With that kind of support in his corner, Bono’s going to be just fine.
