Armenian American singer and actress Cher tweeted in response to Turkey’s attacks on northeastern Syria.
Her tweets regarding the conflict began on October 9, when she wrote, “Trump & ERDOGAN ARE [the] SAME.” Cher compared the situation in Syria, that the Kurds, Armenians, and Assyrians are facing, to that of the immigrants – seeking asylum – that are being “locked in cages” in America.
The following day, she tweeted: “Sorry 2 Keep Harping About Kurds,But I’ve Heard About ‘Blood Thirsty TURKS Who Tortured & Murdered Almost 2Million Armenians SINCE I WAS 11.ALSO HEARD IT IN ARMENIA. TURK SOLDIERS ARE STILL BLOOD THIRSTY. NOW THEY WILL COMMIT GENOCIDE ON THE KURDS WITH trump’s BLESSING. GOD.”
