Republican senator Ted Cruz is getting taken down on Twitter for a tweet about a Disney princess and the Notre Dame fire that's being branded 'tasteless'.
On Wednesday, Cruz took to Twitter to mock the fact that Disney had pledged $5 million to help to rebuild the iconic Gothic cathedral, by suggesting that the entertainment company might have an impact on the building's refurbishment design.
In a tweet, he wrote:
Wonderful! Will we see Disney princesses in the new stained glass?
Unfortunately for him, his 'joke' didn't exactly go down that well.
Further to this, the rose windows of Notre Dame - a trio of immense round stained-glass windows over the cathedral's three main portals that date back to the 13th century - were saved due to the incredible work of the firefighters.
Better luck next time, Teddy!
