Cuba Gooding Jr. causes uproar by lifting Sarah Paulson's dress on stage

Cuba Gooding Jr. lifts Sarah Paulsons dress on stage


At Sunday’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke” PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles, Cuba Gooding Jr. caused a stir when he lifted Sarah Paulson’s dress while she stood on stage to greet a fellow cast mate.

The moment was captured on camera when Paulson got up to dramatically greet Kathy Bates. Paulson threw her arms wide open and kicked up her leg to welcome Bates.

Gooding Jr. then lifted her dress from behind. Paulson didn’t seem to notice at first, but once she did she hit her skirt to push it down and let out a shriek.

The moment seemed to be a joke on Gooding Jr.’s part but many Twitter users weren’t laughing.

According to TV Guide, the cast of “American Horror Story Roanoke” laughed on stage during the panel and all seemed to be in good spirits.

Creator Ryan Murphy was not present at the panel so the chat about the series did not include hints about what is to come during Season 7.
