With Cher rallying her legion of supporters Chaz seems to be in good hands.

Her rant was much appreciated by her 42-year-old son. “Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can,” he said in response Wednesday.

And early Thursday, Chaz followed up that tweet with this one: “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support I received from everyone. Thanks so much. I don’t listen to the haters, but embrace the love.”
