Cher may still be learning the proper etiquette when it comes to using emojis.

When the 70-year-old attempted to express her condolences to the victims of the horrific terrorist attack in Turkey's Ataturk airport on Tuesday, she opted to share the message on Twitter, saying: "We all pray for innocent ppl in turkey airport."

But the famed singer made the mistake of accompanying her touching tribute with a bomb and explosion emoji. Yikes!

Soon after, fans began coming after her over the insensitive tweet.

"Do we really use bomb and explosion emojis right now? Its like your promoting them," one Twitter user wrote.

"Seriously. With the bomb emoji," another added.

One fan even called Cher out for being immature, tweeting: "Really Cher? Bomb emojis? Grow up!"

Meanwhile, as Radar readers know, the "Believe" hit-maker's failing heath has reached an all-time low in recent months.

"Cher knows her time is limited," a source told Radar earlier. "She wants to put any feuds behind her, and make sure that everyone is taken care of after she's gone."

The singer's been battling the Epstein-Barr virus since the '80s.
