Somebody on Twitter had Cher on her bully, yo

On Monday the icon tweeted about how appalled she was by the video of the South Carolina student who was picked up, tossed and dragged by a school official. The incident was caught on tape and went viral. People from all walks of life are disgusted that a child was treated in such a manner. Cher, too:

Somebody with the Twitter handle @MonicahStone disagreed with Cher, and tweeted (later deleting), "She disserved [sic] it!"

No one in his or her right mind would look at that tape and suggest that the student deserved the assault that was leveled at her. Cher, probably having run out of f—ks to give at the ripe age of 69, let Ms. Stone have it, ever so succinctly.

Cher is not here for foolishness. Her intolerance makes her my #WCW.
