She also seems to have called Nigel Farage a “tosser”
The UK’s new Prime Minister Theresa May made Boris Johnson, one of the leaders of the Brexit campaign, foreign secretary in her new cabinet tonight (July 13), replacing Philip Hammond, who has become chancellor. But global chart sensation Cher isn’t happy about it.
Following the revelation of Johnson’s new role, NME reporter Nick Reilly tweeted: “What do you think of Boris Johnson as foreign secretary?”
And Cher didn’t hold back in her response. “Think he’s a f-ing idiot,” she replied in a Twitter post. “Who lied to the British ppl & didn’t have the [balls] 2 lead then once “LEAVE” vote won.” You can see the full tweet below.
After another Twitter user followed up, asking if Cher had considered putting herself forward as leader of the Labour party, she replied: “UK has a special place in my heart. Lived there 2Xs in my life & love Brits. However… Boris & Nigel are definite tossers.” See that post at the bottom of the page.
This isn’t the first time Cher has commented on politics this year either, as she made her strong distaste for Donald Trump known at a rally for Hillary Clinton, saying that she’d rather “blow her brains out” than listen to the Republican presidential nominee speak. The singer made the comments while speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic presidential candidate last month at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
