Hailey Baldwin defended Normani after a racist Twitter user slammed her Cher costume.

Normani recreated one of Cher’s iconic looks for Halloween and although many of the comments were positive and praised her for the beautiful look there was one bad apple in the bunch.

“I don’t think this is the right costume for a black girl, Cher is white and Cher was thing, Cher did a lot, you (sic) not even close to her, you black people think you own everything not fair you could’ve been Beyoncé or Rihanna or Janet [Jackson], but no, Cher. Cher is white, respect her,” the user tweeted.

“There is absolutely nothing wrong with Normani dressing up as Cher for Halloween,” Baldwin replied. “What do you mean by the first sentence?”

“She can do it because she wants to, she is doing much better than you, you’re behind a computer complaining about a costume…stop being racist and get out of her page if you don’t like it. It’s 2019 and you’re still supporting the garbage of Trump.”
