Hell hath no fury like an angry Cher on Twitter.
The dance diva unleashed on Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson over the weekend after he voiced his support of a bill that would make it illegal for local governments in his state to adopt nondiscrimination ordinances protecting LGBT people. It has been nicknamed by some as the “Gays Stay Away” bill.
On February 22, the American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Arkansas, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, Lambda Legal, and National Center for Lesbian Rights released a joint statement urging Hutchinson to veto the bill.
Hutchinson responded by telling local media his stance “will not change” on the matter.
The legendary entertainer joined the chorus of voices calling for the governor to veto the bill, tweeting:
Why am I not surprised That Asa Hutchinson, Gov of Arkansas,is hanging LBGT community out to dry??

The bill passed through the Arkansas State House earlier this month by a landslide margin of 58-21, and in the Arkansas State Senate 24-8. It is expected to go into affect this summer.
