(HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) — Cher has ignited the electoral controversy du jour with an anti-Mitt Romney tweet that some are interpreting as an expression of bigotry against Mormons.

Friday, the singer posted a tweet expressing the need for President Barack Obama to get “all his ducks in a row.” She wrote: “I Feel if he doesn’t get all his DUCKS IN A ROW we’ll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich! The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR in the WH.”

Observant members of the Mormon church, both men and women, always wear what is sometimes called “celestial underwear” or, more formally a “temple garment.” However, the term “magic underwear” is considered offensive and derogatory.
