Cher issued another apology for her recent controversial tweet about the murder of George Floyd for a “soul search.”
The “turning back time” singer came under fire for several days after sharing a tweet about the ongoing trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Joven. He was accused of murdering Freud and kneeling on his neck when he was arrested in May 2020. Cher was accused of being a “white savior” because she thought she could prevent death if she was there when the incident happened.
Although she had previously apologized for this tweet, the star went to Twitter again on Tuesday to reiterate that she felt contrite for her comments and vowed to perform better on social media.
She wrote: “The days of the past have been very difficult, looking for souls, painful people. My wording is wrong/inaccurate.”

Cher continued: “I feel sad and hope that I can help George. Sometimes, you will feel unexplainable, sorry is what I have.”
In her original, deleted tweet, Cher wrote that she was talking to her mother about the trial.
It read: “When talking to her mother, she said,’I saw the trial of the policeman who killed George Floyd,’ and started crying.'” “I said’Mom, I know it sounds crazy, but .. I have been thinking… if I have been there,… I can help.”
Due to strong opposition, the star talked about the controversy in a subsequent tweet and pointed out that she was dissatisfied with people because she did not have an honest, emotional opinion on the trial.

“I wrestled with this Twt, because I thought that some people would not understand, or believe that an artist might have honest emotions, suffering and dying, even if it was only shown on TV. You don’t know what I’m doing. When it’s done, who am I, or what I believe in. I can, I have, and I will…help,” she wrote.
A few hours later, the star came to Twitter again, apologizing to anyone in the black community who was upset with her words. She said she apologized after discussing the matter with a friend.
“I just got off the phone with my friend Karen. Tell her what happened and realized that you can pee Ppl and hurt them by not knowing all the inappropriate statements. I know Ppl apologizes when they get into trouble, but For God, if I upset anyone in the Blk community, I’m really sorry. I know my ❤️,” she wrote.

She wrote on Wednesday: “It is incredibly sad for the brave people to stand up and testify, and the “George Freud Murder” for the whole world to see.” “These are Americans, they No/can’t leave a compatriot, his last breath… was overwhelmed.”
