Coming to the defense of her son, Cher has spoken out against critics of Chaz Bono's casting as the first transgender contestant on "Dancing With the Stars."

After hearing numerous disses about Chaz's stint on season 13 of the show, Cher took to her Twitter, writing, "Chaz is Being Viciously Attacked on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS! This is Still America right? It took guts 2 do it."

Continuing her thoughts, the "If I Could Turn Back Time" songstress later tweeted, "I support him no matter what he chooses 2do! God! will there always be haters! It took COURAGE 2 do dwts! TG Chaz has an Unlimited supply."

Thankful for the love and encouragement, Chaz tweeted back, "Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can."
