As you know, on Wednesday, tragedy struck Istanbul Ataturk Airport when three suicide bombers set bombs off that killed at least 42 and injured over 100 people.

Well Cher thought it would be a good idea to take to Twitter to share her thoughts on the matter and sent out a VERY insensitive tweet saying:

The 70-year-old songstress got quite a bit of backlash from people after the tweet, not for her words, but rather the use of the bomb emoji. We can definitely see how the tweet comes across a bit more playful and lighthearted with the emoji which is obviously NOT appropriate for such a tragedy.

The 70-year-old later tweeted:

Well thankfully Cher found the error in her ways and apologized for her oversight saying:

The Oscar winner continued by tweeting:

That’s the brunette beauty we all know and love!

Not that we’d EVER want the Believe singer to stop tweeting, but we sure do think many will appreciate the apology.

What do you think of the insensitively tweet?!
