Ted Cruz gets shredded for ill-advised Disney princess tweet about Notre Dame

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.

Satire, surely?

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!
