It’s no secret that Twitter is Cher‘s platform of choice, so when the eccentric pop icon sounded off about the DACA repeal Monday afternoon, most fans didn’t bat an eye.

Using her signature emoji and creative spelling, she called the president cowardly for tossing the Obama-era immigration policy over to Congress. “[THE U.S.] HAS BEEN OUR DREAMERS ONLY HOME,” she wrote in one tweet. “TRUMP IS COMPLETE COWARD, WHY DIDNT HE END DACA ‘HIMSELF’ ON [TV]?”

In another tweet, she urged her celebrity followers to welcome displaced Dreamers into their homes. “Those who can must take a dreamer in2 their home & protect them!” she said. “I’m ready 2 do this & others in my business will do the same!”

One Twitter user had some doubts, though. A now-private account with the display name Brenda Webb, questioned whether the Grammy-winner would actually open her home to strangers.

“Sure you will Cher… I’ll believe it when I see it!” Webb tweeted.

Luckily, plenty of people were able to screenshot the pop star’s simple reply: “Then keep your eyes open bitch.”

Webb reportedly replied, “I sure will,” before changing her privacy settings and deleting her tweets.

Cher: 1, Brenda: 0.
