Cher thanked Imran Khan but Pakistanis are trying to warn her
You might remember Cher from her ecstatic tweets for Pakistan a while ago. Cher is an international music sensation and nowadays she stands for social causes so of course she’s been talking about the poor elephant in Islamabad zoo.
It all started when Cher was trying to free Kaavan from Islamabad Zoo
Kaavan was lonely in Islamabad Zoo since 2012 when his partner died. Cher urged that the animal should be sent back to Sri Lanka.

And when Pakistani Government finally freed Kaavan, Cher was beyond excited
WE HAVE JUST HEARD FROM
PAKISTAN HIGH COURT
KAAVAN IS FREE😭😭😭😭
— Cher (@cher) May 21, 2020
I WISH TO THANK THE
— Cher (@cher) May 21, 2020
But if you think that the gratitude ends here, then that’s not the case. Cher mentioned Imran Khan thanking him again on his kindness.
Cher said she has been a huge Imran Khan fan since his cricketing days. Welcome to the club, Cher!

But Pakistanis did not share the same sentiment with Cher as they’re pretty much pissed at Imran Khan these days
Yesterday, in a public address Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that lockdown is not a solution for the virus so the lockdown has effectively been ended. He pretty much said that the public is on their own to prevent the spread of disease and the government cannot do anything. This statement has come in as the virus is on a sharp upward trajectory in the country. So naturally, people are not happy with their Prime Minister.
U thi k 25% of this country’s population is under povertyline but expect them to follow SOPs which educated people have refused to follow? A joke.
Time and time again Imran Khan said previous parties have ruined Pakistan’s international image. Look at what is happening now.

Pakistanis are trying to warn Cher to not fall for Prime Minister Khan as he’ll disappoint her
Sis that's how he got us, don't fall for it!

Read the room, Cher.
— Shumail (@Shumyl) June 1, 2020
They had serious requests for Cher to be wary of Imran Khan
Can you ask him to implement a lockdown please?
— CervezaGomezPK (@CervezaGomezPK) June 1, 2020
They’re joking how because of the current situation Cher might be the only person praising him right now
— Shahid N (@skniazi2008) June 1, 2020
People are also telling Cher that it wasn’t Imran Khan who made the decision to free Kaavan
Get your facts straight, sis!
It wasn't Imran Khan but Athar Minallah, Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court, who ordered Kaavan's release. It was the same judge who ordered Imran Khan's govt to release the 23 men it imprisoned for attending a peaceful protest for release of another activist @ManzoorPashteen. https://t.co/TQJ4mGZcLS

I think you're confusing him with Justice Imran Khan of the Islamabad high Court…. Oh wait, he's not the judge who gave that decision. Imran Khan couldn't care less about an old elephant unless it started shitting dollars. Sorry @cher ….

But this guy got a point

So Cher is pouring love for Prime Minister Khan in a time when people are disappointed with the government’s strategies to tackle the global pandemic and it definitely makes for funny reactions when people tried to warn her against sharing her love for him.
So what do you think of this entire situation? Let us know in the comments.
