Texas Senator Ted Cruz probably wishes he had stuck to politics, after a tweet joking about a Walt Disney Co. donation to help rebuild Notre Dame fell flat.
The Walt Disney Company pledged $5 million toward the rebuilding of the famed Paris cathedral, which was partially destroyed by a fire this week.
Cruz saw the news and tweeted, “Will we see Disney princesses in the new stained glass?”
Feelings that were still raw after the still-unexplained fire at the religious landmark caused a severe backlash to Cruz’s attempt at humor, with some questioning how much he had donated to the reconstruction.
Luckily for Cruz, he was re-elected in November to another six-year Senate term. Plenty of time to make amends.
