Cher apologizes for her 'poorly placed' bomb emoji after Istanbul attack

Cher apologized for a tweet she sent on Tuesday in the wake of the deadly attack in Istanbul. Her tone-deaf message included a bomb and explosion emoji. 

After the backlash over tweet above, the 70-year-old singer — who's known for her all-caps and emoji-filled tweets — opted for the broken heart and crying face emoji in her apology, calling her previous tweet "poorly placed" and "insensitively timed."

She went on to say that she often uses emoji to help her "say more than 140 letters."  

At least 41 people were killed and hundreds more were injured on Tuesday after multiple attackers blew themselves up at Istanbul's Atatürk Airport.
