For reasons we're still struggling to understand, Cher apologizes to Amanda Bynes after the two got into a mini-scuffle on Twitter.
Amanda Bynes has been ranting and raving for weeks now on Twitter and it doesn't look like she's ready to stop anytime soon. Recently, she's mouthed off and called Rihanna ugly, then announced that she was becoming a rapper, then targeted Courtney Love with some hate and even took her anger out on her parents and RuPaul.
One of Bynes' most recent targets was Cher, and in a few tweets the two had a mini-fight and then made up. Well, at least one of them made up. The New York Daily News reported that it all started when a fan tweeted the legendary singer to ask if she cared that Bynes had called her "ugly and a flop."
Cher, who reportedly did not realize that the fan's tweet was referring to Bynes, replied, "Who's that?... Is this another WTF IS MDMA."
Bynes, who of course wasn't going to let that fly, quickly tweeted the singer back with, "This is my twitter. I say whatever I want. Thanks!"
Here's where it gets interesting, at least to us. After Bynes began the whole thing by being rude to her for no reason whatsoever, Cher actually was the one to apologize in the incident. Her next tweet to Bynes said, "You got that one right! SORRY about shade, Sweet-Heart, it was unintentional. Promise."
FYI, for those who don't know "shade" means to diss someone. We actually had to look that one up ourselves.
It gets even more interesting to note that all of the tweets have since been deleted off Cher and Bynes' Twitter pages, but we still can't get over the apology part. Cher (or maybe her publicist) was probably just trying to avoid some sort of huge media flap, and while we understand that, we just don't understand why she would apologize to what basically amounts to a child throwing a tantrum. Yes, it's a free country and everyone has the right to say whatever they want, but if someone you've never met and have no beef with suddenly calls you "ugly," would you really apologize to them?
What do you think? Was Cher right to apologize to Bynes for what happened on Twitter?
