Many members of the cast of the wildly popular FX series were in Los Angeles this past weekend doing a panel discussion. When the Sarah Paulson turned to greet Kathy Bates, Cuba decided to play a prank on Paulson.
The video shows Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. lifting up the 42-year-old actress' dress to seemingly check out her legs. Paulson was clearly startled at first but laughed off the strange joke.
Even though American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson star Sarah Paulson didn't seem offended, many people on social media were totally outraged thinking that Cuba crossed the line. Twitter absolutely erupted with fan reactions, and many users completely blasted Cuba.
