Billboard Producers Fear Trump Bashing
During Awards Speech

Production sources tell TMZ … they’re dealing with what they believe is the inevitable — Cher hates Donald Trump with a passion and will go on the attack Sunday night when she receives the Icon Award.
Here’s the dilemma … producers at Dick Clark Productions don’t want to cut Cher’s mic, because it will look like censorship and possibly even a pro-Trump move. It could also piss off the anti-Trump audience.
The flip side … if Cher unleashes her considerable vocabulary of forbidden words, ABC could be in hot water with the FCC and then take it out on DCP.
Cher — who is set to perform at her first award show in 15 years — has been vocally against Trump, and has called him an obnoxious asshole and a “f***ing” idiot. She also said, “He wants the adulation. He doesn’t give a s**t about the work.”
