Cher Sued: Choreographer Claims Black Dancer Quota

TMZ, September 18, 2014

Cher is being sued for allegedly telling her choreographer there were too many black people on stage during her concerts . . . but the singer says the allegations are BS.

According to a new lawsuit–obtained by TMZ–Cher was auditioning dancers for her “Dressed to Kill” tour in 2014 when choreographer Kevin Wilson said he particularly liked “a minority female dancer.” Wilson claims Cher responded, “We have too much color onstage.”

Wilson claims in the suit–filed by attorney Perry Wander–Cher then told him to find a white, blonde dancer. Wilson further claims he was instructed “not to cast anymore dark skinned black dancers on the tour.”

Wilson–who is black–is claiming racial discrimination and retaliation.

Cher’s rep tells TMZ, “These are ridiculous allegations. They couldn’t be further from the truth.” Cher’s lawyer zeroed in on the alleged racial statement, calling it “untrue and categorically denied,” adding, “To attribute such a statement to Cher is absurd.”

    Fruits and nuts together at last.

    • propagandaoftruth

      Fruits and nuts have been together as long as peas and carrots, W.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Well it depends what kind of fruits and nuts.

        • propagandaoftruth

          Yeah, she’s been a big gay dude diva forever. And anyone who gets too into that stuff is nuts regardless.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Cher looks like a ‘tranny’.

          • propagandaoftruth

            She looks like a mannequin of herself. Isn’t her daughter now her son?

          • Katherine McChesney

            Chaz could NEVER be her son. She’s still female with a mutilated body.

          • Whitetrashgang

            The tranny in my 2005 ford escape shifts like new, and it has 160,000 miles on it, one third of what Cher has on body parts below the equator

          • propagandaoftruth

            Yer on a roll, man. Isn’t it her son who’s her daughter or is it her taco that’s her hot dog?

            The second one, right?

  • BernieGoetzFan

    Even if true, so what? Blacks don’t listen to Cher or buy her music. Blacks don’t cast white (or non-black) male dancers, backup singers or band members in their concerts/videos.

    • bilderbuster

      That does not matter.
      In the USSA Non Whites don’t have to but Whites must (Even half breeds like Cher) or be punished severely.

  • MekongDelta69

    Cher is a hyper-leftist.

    Again – The number one criteria you HAVE to have to be a good leftist, is you HAVE to be a hypocrite

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      She was pro-homo until her daughter CHAZ came out of the closet

      She is pro-diversity until it effects her.

      • bilderbuster

        Yikes!
        I really wish you hadn’t reminded me of CHAZ.

      • Doomispixulated

        Joan Rivers said Justin Beiber is the lesbian daughter Cher wished she had instead of Chaz.

        • Yancy Derringer

          Hysterical!

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Cherilyn Sarkisian has poison Armenian blood from ancient Khazaria.
      Angry, scheming, chiseler therefore comes naturally.

    Slow news day at Amren I see.

    • TruthBeTold

      It speaks to a couple issues.

      Blacks will scream racism at the drop of a hat.

      No one is immune to their accusations, even liberals.

      • Meretricious

        black female dancers tend to be unattractive, like most black females. A famous lingerie designer once told me that it’ impossible to undress a black woman. Cher as a performer wants sexy dancers her white audience will be attracted to. This is not rocket science, and I’m sure Cher made that statement.

  • Are you kidding me? If not for indecency laws, this wench would be swimming in a sea of naked black men in all her concerts. Her pandering only makes her an easy mark for these kinds of lawsuits.

  • Ron Cheaters

    That song: “Half Breed” comes to mind.

    • White Mom in WDC

      I call half breeds Mystery Meat.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      Gypsie, Tramps & Thieves? It takes on a new meaning in today’s demographic doesn’t it?

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    She is more than a halfbreed.

    • That’s just time in a tanning bed and a lot of dyed turkey feathers.

    • Conrad

      Of course my meaning here was that the lefties say one thing & then do the opposite.

  • MooTieFighter

    Can’t hire ’em, can’t fire ’em. Better keep your as# about a hundred miles from them.

    • HJ11

      Yup. Whites need to separate as much as possible from non-Whites and especially from Blacks. Why burn one calorie or waste one minute of your time with them. There’s nothing in it for us Whites. Stay White always and in all ways.

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    Blacks need to be seen as the superior group because they know subconsciously that they are inferior. If they get the job it is because of their superior ability. If not it is because of racism, and they are still superior.

    Half the time it’s about ruining the person’s reputation.
    Calling a White person a racist or antisemite is supposed to be the kiss of death.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      “Half the time it’s about ruining the person’s reputation.
      Calling a White person a racist or antisemite is supposed to be the kiss of death.”

      If you had two people; one of them labeled a racist antisemite, and the other person was infected with AIDS, Leprosy, Syphilis, Typhus, and Herpes. Most whites would shun the person labeled the racist antisemite, and welcome and comfort the disease infected person. If the disease infected person had free tickets to some top sporting event, they would make their daughters sleep with the infected person in the slight chance they might get those tickets.

    Standard. One of those things that is obvious but musn’t be spoken. The blacks I work with get away with all kinds of stuff that would have sent me out the door a long time ago. Every, EVERY, time there is any workplace friction, they always scream racism.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      The problem is the race card just about always works for them. Not only do we have to put up with their non and malfeasance but they also insist on being pushed, without merit, up the ladder. I’m sure you’ve read the stories about the new recruits in the NY Fire Department.

      • MooTieFighter

        I agree. Ironically, this is also an eye opening experience for some. I had a couple of friends that used to be on the “poor blacks” bandwagon; however, after a recent incident at work (that included promoting 2 very less qualified blacks) they have been awakened. It takes incidents like this to open some peoples eyes, and it’s started to work against them. Now one of my colleagues is essentially doing this newly promoted individuals job and she gets the raise, title, and better hours.

        • Ngati Pakeha

          I have to be honest I was similarly inclined to look for the good in some. I commented on a recent article here where my good deed was ultimately punished. As Benjamin Franklin said: “experience keeps a dear school but fools will learn in no other.” As I’m sure your friend can now attest; I won’t be making that mistake again.

        • MBlanc46

          Slowly, eyes are being opened to the fact that to blacks and Neo-Stalinist whites, “non-discrimination” means special privileges for blacks.

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    So if discrimination is prohibited in casting decisions, how do Spike Lee, Tyler Perry et al. get away with all-black casts? Shouldn’t we see Mandela or MLK portrayed by white women?

    • MBlanc46

      Clearly, you don’t understand the meaning of “racial discrimination” in modern Western societies.

  • benvad

    Glad the chickens have come home to roost at last, it’ll be even better if she’s been degraded like Imus in public.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    afro-liar

  • 4321realist

    “Wilson–who is black–is claiming racial discrimination and retaliation.”

    She was fool enough to hire this bigot who, if he had his way, would have hired all blacks.

    All blacks are like that.

    Just take a look at the community organizer and listen to the blacks being interviewed he has appointed to his administration and determine for yourself whether or not they’re mentally challenged.

    Like the brilliant J. Johnson who, before Congress the other day, said amnesty would
    give the government the advantage of knowing who these illegals were who are inundating the country. They would come forward voluntarily, given a criminal background check, etc., before they would get amnesty.

    A Congressman pointed out to him that it would be absurd for anyone to expect that aliens with a criminal past would come forward to have that past revealed. Here is an excellent example of lack of black intellect. It’s amazing anyone could be that absurd.

    He also didn’t know that 400 plus people from terrorist-linked countries had been captured by the border patrol, plus other common data that he obviously should know as DHS head. And it didn’t bother him one bit that he didn’t know and that he came across as some kind of fool. Blacks are so arrogant I imagine he left the hearing silently congratulating himself for showing the honkeys up.

    This is just one example of hundreds that give us a glimpse at what it is like to have a black run government like South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Haiti.

  • bilderbuster

    The swishy queen is claiming that he liked a Black dancer and that racist Cher wouldn’t hire anymore Blacks. When he objected to Cher being a racist and not hiring the Black dancer that Cher then went racist on him and canned his innocent Black self in retaliation
    .

    • benvad

      Thus choreographer was probably already on the chopping block and is making a last ditch effort to vindicate his reputation and deflect attention. They’re getting rid if me? Might as well destroy her life.

      Black charity.

      • Yancy Derringer

        No, he’s just trying to hit the lottery, hoped she’d settle quickly and she refused. She probably offered some sum via her attorney to make this “nuisance suit” just go away, and he demanded more. It’s possible though, of course, that she refused on principle from the outset.

  • HJ11

    I try not to watch movies or go to live performances or watch TV shows with Blacks in them. And, I avoid most sports events with Blacks in them and only watch a few such sports events instead of the many more I would watch if there were no Blacks involved..

    I just don’t like seeing them. They’re not my kind.

  • MBlanc46

    If she did say it, I hope that she didn’t put it in writing. Saying it to a black choreographer wasn’t very bright. I detect the aroma of the ghetto lottery here.

  • Lagerstrom

    Well, I can’t say I give a damn, but isn’t that Cher’s decision to make?

  • Katherine McChesney

    and is a cross dresser.

  • Alex Dihes

    I am against Cher! I grew up in Russia, love the ballet, know it well, follow the art, was close to the inner world. I saw all the so called “great” black “dancers”. To hire a black as a choreographer is as hire Al Sharpton play chess. She is definitely not stupid. However, if it is not she so who else!

  • bilderbuster

    Cher has been asking for trouble for a long time then huh?

  • Paleoconn

    Liberals eating their own. Pass the popcorn.

  • Mentious

    Well, aesthetics is aesthetics. This is art after all.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      She should hire all black dancers, dress them in all black, make them wear sunglasses, don’t let them smile, and have them dance in front of a black background with the lights out.

      .

  • A Freespeechzone

    How typical–rabit, “inclusive’ liberals, who, in reality reality don’t live or associate with minorities any more than is necessary is shown for her biases.

    At least most on this board are consistent in our honest beliefs.

  • tlk244182

    I’m flabbergasted that you’re flabbergasted.

  • Doomispixulated

    People actually pay to see crap like that? What ever happened to a good old rock concert (I guess that is just for old white dudes or something)? Ted Nugent would never have to worry about his black choreographer suing him for such drivel…

  • Chris Granzow XI

    Perhaps she could win this by using political correctness against them. For example, she could say “I just wanted more diversity.”

  • Stiv44

    This could be true too. Cher may be more socially conservative than you think. She wasn’t happy with her daughter becoming a man; she had a problem accepting it.

    Not really a fan of Cher anyway.
