Cher still has a thing or two to learn about Twitter. The 70-year-old music legend apologized to fans on Wednesday after tweeting about the terror attacks at the Istanbul airport that have taken the lives of 42 victims so far.

In her now-deleted tweet, Cher wrote, “WE ALL PRAY FOR INNOCENT PPL IN TURKEY AIRPORT” and then used a bomb emoji and an explosion emoji. Many fans felt the emojis were off-color and insensitive.

Cher followed that post with another, writing, “Been thinking about my Poorly Placed, Insensitively Timed ‘bomb Emoji’. No Excuse,” she wrote using a broken heart emoji. “I’m Used 2 Using Emoji 2Help Say More Than 140 Letters. Sorry.”

Hours later, she explained her unusual social media silence, writing, “No Twts 2day, Cause, Wanted2 Think About Sensitivity. Meant No Disrespect, But That’s Not Enough. DOWN A FEW PEGS, IS OK #WalkAMileInTheirShoes.”

The legendary singer and actress has been hitting the road lately. Last week she was spotted vacationing in Italy, chowing down on some gelato and drinking a giant fishbowl margarita. Check out pics from her trip in the video below.
