Cher calls the Queen a “COW” instead of GOAT in a bizarre mistake

If only she could turn back time.

Cher made headlines after slipping up in an Twitter tribute to Queen Elizabeth II when she referred to the late monarch as a cow.

The 76-year-old pop star shared a heartfelt social media message following the death of the king on Thursday night, recalling their first meeting with Her Majesty in 1988.

It appeared that Cher intended to include an emoji of a goat — borrowing from the acronym GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) — at the end of her post.

However, the Moonstruck starlet messed up her farm animals and posted a cow emoji instead.

“Sorry about the death of Queen Elizabeth II,” Cher wrote. “I had the honor of meeting her. I was in a long line of people waiting to meet her, but when she got me she asked me relevant questions and seemed genuinely interested in speaking to me.

She concluded: “I’m proud that she was a [cow emoji] & lucky she had a great sense of humor.”

The Post has reached out to Cher’s rep for comment.

The apparent animal accident raised eyebrows at the tweetati, with one follower replying: “What’s with the cow emoji?!”

Others theorized that the emoji was a bull, not a cow, and was a nod to the Queen’s zodiac sign. Like Cher, Elizabeth II was a Taurus, a sign represented by a bull.

“I read it as a cow first and figured I know Cher doesn’t call the queen cow,” chipped in a social media detective. “So I thought about it for a second and realized it was Taurus.”

“Bull Queens!!!” gushed another.

Others cooed over Cher’s tribute to the monarch, saying the “Believe” singer is a king herself.

“From one queen to another,” explained one, adding a heart emoji.

Cher hasn’t cleared any confusion yet, but it doesn’t appear that her tweet was malicious.

The American superstar first met the Queen in 1988 at the premiere of Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun.

The pair then reunited after Cher sang at the 2001 Royal Variety Performance in London.

Elizabeth II died Thursday afternoon at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, after struggling with health and mobility issues for the past few months.
