Cher apologises for insensitive tweet after Istanbul attack

Los Angeles, July 1 (IANS) Veteran singer Cher apologised to her fans after posting an “insensitive” tweet after the terror attacks at Istanbul airport on Tuesday.

In her now-deleted tweet, Cher wrote: “We all pray for innocent people in Turkey airport” and then used a bomb and an explosion emoji. Many fans felt the emojis were ‘insensitive’, reports

Cher followed that post with her apology, writing: “Been thinking about my poorly placed, insensitively timed ‘bomb emoji’. No excuse.”

“I’m used to using emojis to help say more than 140 letters. Sorry,” she added.

The gun and bomb attacks at the Istanbul Ataturk Airport led to the death of 43 people and left 230 injured.

Three suicide bombers first opened fire outside the terminal to create panic before two of the attackers entered the building and blew themselves up, while the third detonated his explosive device at the entrance.
