Donald Trump has been making his opinions known on Twitter for some time now, earning special attention for posts he made after President Barack Obama was re-elected on Nov. 6.
But now another big celebrity has jumped into the arena and is engaging in a Twitter fight with the billionaire -- Cher.
Cher's not the only one who objects to Macy's involvement with Trump. Over a half-million people have signed a petition asking the department store chain to cut ties with the billionaire, saying otherwise they will cut up their Macy's credit cards.
Stay tuned. With two such vocal and Twitter-happy celebs involved, this feud may not be over.
"If ROMNEY gets elected I don't know if I can breathe same air as Him &his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters," read one of Cher's tweets from early Tuesday that has since been deleted.
The remark attracted a variety of responses, some more profane and negative than others. Cher replied to one, "Nice Mouth ! U learn that at Church, Gun Show,or how to press your Klan costume Klass?" (That, and the nasty tweet directed at her, are still online.)
To another user who called her an "atten.whore," Cher fired back, "Actually I'm Not &if u Dislike Me SO.. Get Off My Site it Cant B Fun 4 U !"
Another Cher tweet that disappeared, however, was this: "TOO HARSH? That's me Holding BACK! They care nothing about the POOR The OLD The SICK The HUNGRY CHILDREN &People striving 4 a Better LIFE !"
A number of fans chimed in to support the "Moonstruck" star, as well, some apologizing for those who were giving her such a hard time and some inquiring why she was retweeting some of the nastiest messages.
"Hi Lovelies!hope U R having GREAT Day or Nite!" Cher responded this afternoon. "Sorry I Let The Dogs Out,But I Should Have Remembered 1must watch what They Say These Days!"

Cher never sticks to the same look for long.
The singer, 65, nearly stole the spotlight at the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday. Sporting a large black afro, Cher made a surprise appearance to honor her transgender son, Chaz Bono, 43, with the Stephen F. Kolzak award.
"I'm here because Chaz has the most courage of almost anyone I know," Cher told a star-studded audience that included Josh Hutcherson, 19, Betty White, 90, Ellen DeGeneres, 54, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 36, and Joshua Jackson, 33.
Cher then addressed her son directly, saying: "You are the most courageous person I know and you really deserve this award, so come up and get it!"
Earlier that evening, Bono told Us Weekly he was elated to be honored for his work with the LGBT community. "I've seen a lot of people get this award and I really never thought I'd be one of them, so it's pretty special for me," said Bono, who competed on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" in 2011.
"I get recognized a lot more," he told Us. "I think that one of my goals in doing all this stuff was to let people get to know a transgender person. For so many people, the only time they get to know a member of the LGBT community is through the media, and so in that I think I accomplished a lot."
Kim Kardashian tweeted the Cher death hoax to her 12 million fans.

If you've been on the Internet for all of one second, you're aware that some of the information on it is false. Fake. Made up. Fiction. Wrongamundo. And yet people still fall for bad information daily -- it's why snopes.com, the great debunker of urban legends, exists.
But if you have 12 million followers, as Kim Kardashian has, perhaps you should think and verify before retweeting information that even to you seems to be false.
On Thursday, Kardashian tweeted "Did I just hear that Cher has passed away? Is this real? OMG."
She may have heard it, but it wasn't, of course, true. (The Huffington Post has tracked the rumor to the Twitter accounts which may have kicked off the hoax.)
Kardashian didn't just tweet once, she tweeted twice about the death-that-didn't-happen, later tweeting: "I hope this is a twitter joke and not true. I don't see it on the news anywhere. I'm praying its not true." Twitter user the boss was one of many to set her straight, tweeting "Of course not, Cher will outlive you."
She's not the first celeb to grab information that has not been researched and run with it. Back in November, Ashton Kutcher came under fire when he expressed anger that Penn State had fired coach Joe Paterno. He had his facts right -- Paterno was fired -- but Kutcher later claimed he didn't know anything about the much-publicized child sexual abuse cases involving former coach Jerry Sandusky, and thought Paterno was fired for a bad football season. For Kutcher, the fallout was so bad that he moved to a less-open Twitter account, saying his tweets would now go through a management team rather than just fly out as he thought them up.
Sure, there's a lot to be said for the spontaneity of a fun tweet, but it's different when only a few dozen of your friends are seeing it. Who knows how many people -- maybe even family and friends of Cher herself -- thought the singer really was dead because Kardashian sent it out there to 12 million followers?
Kardashian was apparently corrected on her error within an hour. She then tweeted: "Can't believe people would make up a sick joke like Cher died. These people need to get a life! Thanks Twitter for clearing that up."
