Halsey Apologizes For Insensitive Tweet About The World Trade Center: ‘Clearly A Misunderstanding’

Halsey is clearing the air after an absolutely savage Twitter exchange nearly sent pitchforks coming her way.

The drama started on Thursday when a media outlet called Pitchfork shared a pretty brutal review of the 25-year-old pop star’s latest studio album titled Manic, cutting straight to the chase as they argued, in part:

“Too much of this album sounds like the amorphous pop that you might associate with a miserable Lyft ride.”

Ouch!!

The You Should Be Sad singer hit back at the digital magazine with a scathing, since-deleted tweet that said:

“can the basement that they run p*tchfork out of just collapse already.”

Eagle-eyed fans caught a glimpse and screengrab of the message (below) before it was gone, though:

Now, here’s where things get a bit dicey…

NBC reporter Ben Kesslen caught wind of Halsey’s tweet and reposted it with a pretty dark observation that she allegedly overlooked. As it turns out, one of Pitchfork‘s central offices is located at One World Trade Center, the skyscraper that was built to commemorate the collapse of the Twin Towers following the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

With this added context, the singer’s tweet sounds especially harsh and insensitive — doesn’t it? Yikes…

Kesslen put the starlet on blast with his message that said:

“losing my mind thinking about the person on halsey’s team who had to tell her she just called for the collapse of one world trade”

Dang, that’s a tough one. We mean, what are the odds she knew the outlet worked in that building of all the highrises in New York City? The outlet’s online bio does note they are also based in Chicago, too. Her original tweet sounded a little bitter, albeit, but we seriously doubt she meant for actual physical harm to come to those people, right?

Should we then give Evan Peter‘s girlfriend the benefit of the doubt that maybe it was simply all…

One Big Misunderstanding?

Halsey saw the journalist‘s tweet and immediately seized the opportunity to clear things up:

“ABSOLUTELY deleted it upon realizing this. was just trying to make a joke! Intended zero harm. Just figured I could poke at them back with the same aloof passive aggression they poke at artists with! Clearly a misunderstanding.”

What’s your take on all of this, Perezcious readers? And, will this make U any more or less interested in streaming Manic?? Let us know your thoughts in the comments (below)!

CNN Silent on Contributor’s False Viral Tweet

CNN has remained silent about a contributor’s viral tweet that misleadingly claimed to relay a conversation between Republican senators.

Former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart received more than 9,000 retweets and 36,000 likes for a tweet claiming to report an overheard conversation between two Fox News-watching GOP senators. “Is this stuff real? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server,” the senators supposedly said. “If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up shit’s creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence.”

Replies to the tweet indicate that many people took Lockhart’s scoop seriously. When reached for comment about the episode, a CNN spokesman redirected the Washington Free Beacon to a network communications director for the network who ignored multiple requests for comment.

In follow-up tweets, Lockhart acknowledged that he “made up” the overheard conversation and called it satire. Lockhart did not delete the misleading tweet even as it went viral, and the clarifying tweets did not achieve the same reach as the original.

After he continued to receive criticism from conservative and liberal journalists alike, Lockhart characterized his detractors as “purveyors of Pizzagate and the Seth Rich conspiracy.”

CNN reporters on the media and “disinformation” beats have repeatedly said that satire is no excuse for spreading “fake news,” particularly if some internet users mistake it for genuine news. Some have accused comedy websites of hiding behind satire to mislead voters while dodging punishment from social media companies.

Brian Stelter, the network’s media critic and host of Reliable Sources, was also silent on the matter, although he did tweet about President Donald Trump’s “false claims.”

Lockhart, who has made frequent appearances during the network’s impeachment coverage, also sparked controversy on Tuesday when he said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) should face prison time for tweeting while he was on the Senate floor. The former public relations executive was seemingly unaware that most politicians have dedicated press staffers who handle their social media accounts, and that senators cannot be imprisoned for breaking Senate floor rules.

Cruz mocked the tweet with a graphic of a cell phone reading, “Come and Take It”—a mock-up of a popular flag commemorating the famous victory at the Battle of Gonzales that sparked the Texas Revolution.

Pink Declares She’ll NEVER Get Plastic Surgery: ‘I Cannot Get Behind It’!

Pink has never subscribed to the Hollywood lifestyle — and she’s not gonna start now!

The superstar singer took to Twitter late Sunday evening to share an open letter to fans declaring that she’ll never go under the knife, despite the fact that she’s starting to see “lines” on her face.

Related: Pink Is Taking A Break From Music In 2020

The 40-year-old Grammy winner wrote:

“Dear Me, you’re getting older I see lines.Especially when you smile.Your nose is getting bigger..You look(and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality.But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh.And yeah you idiot..u smoked.”

In a follow up tweet, the Just Like A Pill singer admitted she “consider[s] altering [her] face” every once in a while, but noted:

“Then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling… and their face doesn’t move. I’m cannot get behind it. I just can’t.”

Pink went on to reveal having an emotionless face would make parenting her two kids — Willow, 8, and Jameson, 3 — a bit more challenging. She added:

“I want my children to know what I look like when I’m angry”

Fair point!

And while countless celebrities in her industry have gone under the knife, Pink noted she never relied on her “looks” for her act. She wrote:

“I’m fortunate because I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face. So get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling shit at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yasssssssss.”

Rock on, momma!

The performer received an outpouring of love following her posting, including a sentimental shout out from her husband Carey Hart, who took to Instagram to applaud her message. The motocross racer wrote:

“Think it’s time for people to step away from the syringe and plastic surgeon. Good work baby, let’s get wrinkly together.”

This isn’t the first time Pink got real about aging on social media. In 2018, she called out a troll who said she looks so old “she should be named purple.”

The star schooled the Twitic in response, writing:

“You must be from la. Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f**king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.”

She continued:

“I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old. That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you’ve laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, cause that will mean I’m alive.”

Kelly Clarkson agreed and tweeted alongside the artist’s original message:

HELL YASS!

Do U wish more celebs had this mentality, Perezcious readers?

Twitter Points Out Anna Paquin Had More Lines In SAG Awards Speech Than She Did In ‘The Irishman’!

Twitter did not stay silent during Anna Paquin’s SAG Awards speech!

During Sunday’s ceremony, the 37-year-old joined her The Irishman co-stars Ray Romano and Harvey Keitel to present the Netflix crime drama as one of the nominees for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Viewers couldn’t help but notice that Paquin had a lot to say on stage — at least when compared to her nearly-silent role in Martin Scorsese‘s film.

As Twitics pointed out, the Oscar winner spoke more during her brief speech at the awards show than she did in the three-and-a-half-hour film, which saw her character utter a total of seven lines of dialogue.

Paquin’s small role in the mob epic already sparked backlash when the film was released late last year, with some viewers blasting her mostly muted character in a film full of very talkative men.

The actress responded to the outrage back in November, explaining to upset viewers that silence was a key component of her character, Peggy Sheeran, the daughter of mafia hitman Frank Sheeran, played by Robert De Niro. She wrote on Twitter at the time:

“Nope, nobody was doing any ‘ordering’. I auditioned for the privilege of joining the incredible cast of @TheIrishmanFilm and I’m incredibly proud to get to be a part of this film.”

De Niro also defended Paquin’s role last month, telling USA Today that her performance was “very powerful.” He said:

“She was very powerful and that’s what it was. Maybe in other scenes there could’ve been some interaction between Frank and her possibly, but that’s how it was done. She’s terrific and it resonates.”

Well, it appears some fans are still bitter about it: on Sunday night, more than a few Twitter users used the actress’ speech to revisit her not-so-chatty character in the film.

VOTE: Who Was Best Dressed At The SAG Awards??

The following was tweeted:

“Anna Paquin finally gets to speak for The Irishman. #SAGAwards.”

“Anna Paquin with more words presenting “The Irishman” than she had in the movie. #SAGAwards”

“Anna Paquin just spoke more words presenting The Irishman than she did in the movie. #SAGAwards”

“Similar to The Irishman, the intro for The Irishman at @SAGawards was Anna Paquin being pushed into the background in favor of aging white men. #SAGAwards #Annoying.”

Few remained tight lipped — yet not everyone subscribed to Twitter’s mob mentality. Many fans sided with De Niro and Paquin about the character and the role Peggy played in the story, with one tweeting:

“I think Anna Paquin’s silence in the movie speaks volumes.”

What do U think, Perezcious readers? Are these upset fans onto something, or should they take a note from Peggy Sheeran and pipe down?

Is Ariana Grande Featured On Mac Miller’s New Posthumous Album ‘Circles’? Hear The Evidence!

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller were not only one of our favorite former couples but also a match made in musical heaven before the rapper’s untimely passing in September 2018. The pair first joined forces on Ari’s 2013 track, The Way, and collaborated again in 2016 on Miller’s hit, My Favorite Part, to name a few.

Now, fans are all but convinced the two have done it again on Mac’s posthumous album Circles. The record, which was released on Friday, appears to feature uncredited vocals from the 7 Rings songstress on one of its tracks!

Related: Eminem Lyric About Ariana Grande 2017 Concert Bombing Enrages Fans

For those who may not know, Miller’s latest was crafted as a companion album to his 2018 project titled Swimming, which the rapper was working on at the time of his death.

On the new song called I Can See, many listeners thought they heard Grande’s distinctive voice harmonizing in the background and immediately shared their reactions on Twitter.

First, give the clip (below) a listen so you can hear it for yourself:

A very soft, familiar-sounding voice can be heard harmonizing as the artist, born Malcolm McCormick raps:

“Yeah, don’t tell me to stop/Let me keep goin’ until I cannot/Life is a fantasy until you wake up in shock/Hittin’ the ground, I’m hittin’ the ground, I fell from the top/You never expect to drop, so hold on, but/That just the way it goes, your God don’t wait for no one/And when that’s all you know, it keep you on your toes/You got so far to go, but look at where you came from.”

Ariana and Mac’s family haven’t addressed the speculation, but as we mentioned earlier, people are convinced those angelic vocals belong to the Thank U, Next crooner.

Here’s what the general consensus seems to be online:

“someone tell me if it’s Ariana singing the harmonies on ‘I can see’ before I cry”

“Ariana harmonizing in the background of Mac Miller’s new song “I Can See” has my heart THROBBING”

“you can hear arianagrande’s vocals on mac miller’s “i can see”

“do I hear @ArianaGrande’s vocals on mac’s “I can see” ? my heart”

“I’m listening to mac’s new album and low key I am pretty sure it’s Ariana’s vocals on ‘I can see’???”

TBH, we’re inclined to agree!

Aside from the fact that it really does sound like Ari, the singer also fanned the flames of speculation with a few suspiciously timed tweets she wrote just one day before the album dropped.

See what we mean here:

We know her album Sweetener full of vocal rifts left and right — but is it a coincidence that she’d express her love for harmonies so casually right now? We think not.

Either way, the song is beautiful and we’re sure Mac’s fan base is appreciative of more music to keep his memory alive for years to come.

These Pics Of Barack & Michelle Obama Will Make You Believe In Love Again!

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama will forever be #relationshipgoals!

The former president took to Twitter on Friday to honor his wife on her 56th birthday with a photo booth-style series of sweet pics.

Sharing images of the couple, who first tied the knot in 1992, getting progressively sillier and more adorable with each other, he wrote:

“In every scene, you are my star, @MichelleObama! Happy birthday, baby!”

Awww!

The pics show the former FLOTUS hugging her husband and getting a kiss from him. They then take a break for a cool shot where Barack throws up deuces before he pulls his wife into a passionate embrace with his back facing the camera. Michelle endorsed the b-day shout out by giving the post a like on the social site.

Ch-ch-check out the overwhelming cuteness (below):

Michelle’s birthday isn’t the only reason they’re beaming of late. Earlier this week, the pair celebrated a major showbiz achievement when the documentary American Factory, which is the first film presented by their production company Higher Ground, landed an Oscar nomination.

Barack celebrated the milestone on Instagram. Under a picture of himself and Michelle posing with the filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, he wrote:

“Oscar nominations came out today and I’m glad to see American Factory’s nod for Best Documentary. I like this film for its nuanced, honest portrayal of the way a changing global economy plays out in real lives. It offers a window into people as they actually are and it’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough. This is exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve through Higher Ground. Congratulations to the incredible filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, and the entire team!”

Yas, Obamas!

Looks like 2020 is already off to a smashing start for America’s favorite pair; it’s no wonder other A-list couples are aspiring to be like them!

By “other A-list couples,” we of course mean Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who are said to be hoping to establish a “model like the Clintons or Obamas” that will allow them to create “meaningful work while making a living” post-Megxit. As we reported, an ET insider said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could potentially start producing projects like the Obamas have with Netflix, in addition to their upcoming mental health docu-series for Apple TV.

We don’t think there’s a better famous couple Harry and Meg could draw inspo from! Do U?

Ariana Grande Claps Back At Critics Who Say She’s Been Wearing The Same Two Outfits ‘For Years’

Ariana Grande is the queen of ponytails, thigh-high boots, and oversized sweatshirts… and what about it?!

We’re paraphrasing but that’s basically what the 7 Rings songstress had to say in response to critics who slammed her repetitive outfit choices on social media this week. Apparently, after a few years in the biz, some people are still really bothered by the pop star’s signature look!

Things got particularly heated on Wednesday on Twitter when one fan wrote:

“She’s been wearing the same boots/long shirt Combo for years….. we need the insta baddie

Ari def had her defenders, as a fan immediately shot back:

“I really don’t want her to look like every other I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kylie”

Oh, do a ton of young women on Instagram try to look like Kylie Jenner, we hadn’t noticed…

Kylie Jenner Wink GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

But the disgruntled critic wasn’t having any of it, arguing:

“she could easily stand out without wearing the same 2 outfits luv”

Shots Fired!

Ari was quick to hop into the conversation to defend herself, her art, and her distaste for taking photos. In full, her clap back reads:

“thank god i’m a singer then 😭 gimmeee a break i don’t like having my photo taken, i escape the paparazzi almost every time i never post photos that aren’t on stage but s**t i promise i have cute ass clothes 🥺 cuter than this f***in candy jacket i-“

Well, she makes a good point!

Have you guys checked out Ari’s IG feed lately? It is full of stage photos and scores of black-and-white filtered shots that consistently fit the aesthetic she described. It’s her thing!

nnnnnothin shinin more than u boy

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

Plus, y’all remember when Grande put out that bold set of photography rules ahead of her Sweetener world tour last year, which granted her in-house company GrandAriTour, Inc. the rights to own and distribute any pictures to publications as long as they’re approved? And who can forget when she was accused of diva-like behavior for requesting to be captured from her left profile only? Yeah… she’s always been particular in this department.

However, another Arianator chimed in to say the singer’s fanbase just wants the best for her and desperately would like to see her switch things up a bit!

To which, Pete Davidson‘s ex-fiancée replied:

“PERIODDDDD 😭😭 i already know but also i’m never even seen like ever, i promise i look cute over here in my own world. i haven’t even been able to put on a pair of f***in boots lately because of the traumatic image i have in my head of these uh …. tik tok “performers”

Hmm. So, is this why we aren’t treated with a glimpse of those fresh outfits she supposedly rocks behind closed doors? Because it’ll give TikTok performers more material to emulate her with?? Well, that’s one way to look at it.

Either way, we best get used to this because it doesn’t sound like the artist will change her ways anytime soon.

Last year, her longtime stylist Law Roach told People his client’s look is “iconic” and plays a huge part in shaping her public image — even if it’s a little stale for some.

“This is the DNA of the Ariana look. She’s made these elements iconic.”

Here’s a question for our fashion-savvy Perezcious readers: what style change would YOU like to see from Ariana? Should she stay on brand? Should she just wear what’s comfortable for her?? Sound OFF with your thoughts in the comment section (below)…

Walmart Deletes Insensitive Paul Walker Tweet Amid Social Media Outrage

It’s never a good time to make a joke about a dead celebrity.

The Workaholics fan currently running Walmart’s Twitter account learned that the hard way when a seemingly innocuous reply sparked fierce Twiticism.

Related: Kylie Jenner Donates $1 MILLION To Australia After Insensitive Post!

According to TMZ, the controversy began when a user on the social site shared a story about Walmart selling Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with strawberry and cream-flavored icing, writing:

“I NEEDDDD THIS IN MY LIFEEEE!!!”

To illustrate their point, the user added a silly GIF of a car wildly speeding through traffic, complete with the caption:

“*me racin to the nearest Wally World*”

It was all fun and GIFs — that is, until the employee behind Walmart’s Twitter account chimed in on Thursday and replied to the post by tweeting:

“Hey, Paul Walker. Click it, or ticket.”

Oh no.

Walmart deletes insensitive joke about Paul Walker
(c) Twitter

As TMZ pointed out, the employee was probably trying to make a Fast & Furious reference. However, the joke completely fell flat with users, due to the fact that the celebrated actor tragically died as a passenger in a Porshe driven by his friend at speeds over 100 mph.

While the line was used before in an episode of Workaholics, that episode aired in 2011 — two years before the 40-year-old’s tragic passing. Unsurprisingly, the tweet has since been removed, and we join the Twitter choir hoping that Walmart pumps the brakes on the dead celeb references.

To this day, fans and friends of the actor are still reeling over his death. In September 2019, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted a birthday tribute to his late Fast & Furious co-star because he “almost lost another friend on the road” recently (Kevin Hart, for those who don’t know). He wrote:

“I never post about my friend. Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet. But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us. It’s Paul’s birthday and rightfully so, his legacy celebrated around the world. Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers. And recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road. All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is. We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honor of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us. Manuia le aso fanau, my friend. #livegreatly #pw”

Let’s all take the high road and remember to respect those we’ve lost.

During a Thursday Q&A on his Instagram Story, the 26-year-old looked back on a dark time in his life when asked about his proudest moment:

“Within two weeks, my fiancée cheated on and left me, I almost died from food poisoning, and Donald Trump was elected president. I truly didn’t think I would be able to make it through that part of my life. I’m proudest of the light that came from the darkness. And my ability to survive and turn the anger and sadness I had into positive life changes and a new way forward.”

His attitude now is a far cry from how he previously spoke about his ex! While chatting with E! News back in October 2016 just days after their split, things seemed amicable:

“I’m good. I love her to death. There’s a lot of love there. You know, she made a decision that—because I love her—I have to respect.”

Their breakup was first announced by McCartan via Twitter:

“Dove has decided this relationship isn’t what she wants. We still love each other very much. Please be sensitive, as this is painful.”

“@DoveCameron anyways you and thomas are hot and HEALTHY”

“this bitch said chlo cheated on him the AUDACITY. Lying toxic ass bye”

“And he wonders why nobody think he the sunshine”

@DoveCameron I mean if I was a man I would be jealous of Thomas too”

“Yeah I totally ignore that Ryan was with Dove; cause of the way he treated her. Like she din’t matter, and put a lot pressure on her. Thomas on the other treats her like a lady should be treated.”

Lefty News Site Pushes Bizarre Claim Anne Frank Didn’t Die ‘From’ Concentration Camp

Liberal viral news outlet NowThis News pushed the bizarre claim that Holocaust victim Anne Frank did not “die [from] a concentration camp.”

In a Tuesday tweet, NowThis posted video of members of the far-left Jewish Voice For Peace criticizing President Donald Trump’s executive order combating anti-Semitism and comparing Trump’s handling of the border crisis to the Holocaust. “We’re seeing people die at the border from lack of medical care,” said Becca Lewis, a senior at George Washington University. “That’s how Anne Frank died. She didn’t die in a concentration camp, she died of typhus.”

As phrased, Lewis’s claim that Frank didn’t die “in” a concentration camp is simply false; witnesses say the famous diarist and her sister Margot died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen death camp. The subtitles provided by NowThis changed Lewis’s claim to say that Frank did not die “[from] a concentration camp.”

Twitter screenshot

But the altered claim is also rejected by Holocaust historians, who draw no distinction between the victims actively murdered by gas chambers or firing squad and those who died from disease. The Holocaust Memorial Museum notes that typhus victims died of “deliberate neglect” as part of “the German policy to cause the deaths of large numbers of Jews through over-crowded, squalid living conditions and a lack of reasonable medical care.”

The fact that Anne Frank likely died of disease rather than being executed directly by Nazis is also a favorite talking point of neo-Nazis. The Holocaust-denying Institute for Historical Review, for example, says in its FAQ that Frank “succumbed to typhus in the Bergen-Belsen camp, just a few weeks before the end of the war. She was not gassed.”

Wendy Williams Apologizes After Critics Slam Her For Mocking Joaquin Phoenix’s Cleft Lip Scar

Wendy Williams is apologizing after her recent insensitive comments about Joaquin Phoenix landed her in hot water!

In case you missed it, the 55-year-old made fun of a scar the Joker actor has above his lip on last week’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

Related: Wendy Williams Hits Back After Howard Stern Reignites Their Feud!

During the “Hot Topics” segment, Wendy went from praising Joaquin’s “oddly attractive” appearance to poking fun at his cleft lip for… cheap laughs? Who knows.

After noting his memorable performance as Johnny Cash alongside Reese Witherspoon in Walk The Line, the host added:

“He knows how to transform, when he shaves [his beard] off, the way he looks at you. And he’s got the good nose that dips way down, like he’s happy with it and so am I. When he shaves off his mustache, he’s got a hairline fracture, he’s got one of those — what do you call it? Cleft lip, cleft palate.”

She paused to actually lift her upper lip before continuing:

“He’s got this. I find it to be very attractive.”

Yikes… / (c) Wendy Williams/YouTube

We know Williams loves to stir the pot with her hot takes, but this was not a good look, at all!

While Joaquin has not publicly responded to the jab, plenty of others have slammed the talk show host for engaging in such hurtful and offensive behavior.

We should mention, Phoenix has never said he had a cleft lip or palate. In an October 2019 Vanity Fair profile, it was reported that his scar was “not a surgically fixed cleft, he says, but a nonsurgical scar he was born with.”

People are pissed…

Cher, who is an ally to the cleft palate community, was quick to rip Wendy a new one on Twitter!

Replying to a fan who shared several pictures of the singer with fans who live with the abnormality, she wrote:

“THESE ARE THE PPL @WendyWilliams IS MAKING FUN OF. Joaquin Phoenix was a Child,& We Don’t Know What He Had To Go Through. HE IS ONE OF THE GREAT ACTORS OF OUR TIME,MAGNETIC,& MORE THAN HANDSOME!! SHE WILL BE JUDGED FOR THIS FOREVER.”

The controversial comments also caught the attention of Canadian football player Adam Bighill, whose baby boy Beau just underwent cleft palate repair surgery. The athlete, for his part, appeared to denounce Williams as a bully:

“Waiting for an apology and donation from @WendyWilliams and since we are still waiting, this campaign has gone viral. This campaign/message is all centered around one thing we all agree on, bullying is awful. Thank you all for being a part of the difference #end bullying”

Wendy’s Remorse…

After those and countless other angry complaints online, Wendy then issued an apology which reads:

“We’re thinking about Beau today as he is in surgery. I want to apologize to the cleft community and in Beau’s honor, our show is donating to @operationsmile and @AmerCleftPalate and encourage our Wendy Watchers to learn more and help support the cleft community.”

Okay. So, not only is she sorry, but she put her money where her mouth is, too. Commendable, right? Of course, we’re sure those organizations would’ve still appreciated the monetary donation without the extra dramatics on last week’s show.

To that point, Cher was not pleased and continued her tirade against the former shock jock and tweeted:

“THERE IS NO APOLOGY FOR WHAT SHE DID…& LAUGHED ABOUT !! I KNOW THESE CHILDREN,& ADULTS.THEY GO THROUGH HELL,THEIR PARENTS GO THROUGH HELL !! Fk Her Apology. SHE WANTS TO KEEP HER JOB !! I CANT CONTAIN MY ANGER !!”

The 73-year-old pop legend was not ready to back down, either, with another tweet seen HERE.

Meanwhile, Bighill has publicly accepted the star’s apology and wrote:

“Thank you @WendyWilliams for your apology, your donation, and for thinking of Beau today for his surgery. I forgive you, and I encourage others to as well. I wish you all the best.”
