Cuba Gooding Jr. Doesn’t Understand Why Lifting A Woman’s Skirt Is Wrong…

Cuba Gooding Jr addresses the Sarah Paulson skirt incident.

We don’t think Cuba Gooding, Jr. understood the outrage.

The actor spoke out for the first time since images of him lifting Sarah Paulson‘s skirt during an American Horror Story: Roanoke panel in LA on March 26 were released.

People on Twitter were NOT amused by his stunt, and Cuba addressed the reactions at the FX All-Star Upfront in New York City on Thursday.

He told People that it was “a very teachable moment.”

He added:

“I have two sons in college ├óΓé¼┬ª and I say to them, ├óΓé¼╦£Guys, the internet, it’s a beast. It’s an information highway without regulation. Any image you put on there can be interpreted any way it wants to.”

Okay, true enough, and maybe he should also teach them not to lift women’s skirts??? Especially since they’re in college, where sexual misconduct is rampant.

The American Crime Story star also added that he’s very close to Sarah, saying:

“I love the lady that is Sarah Paulson. We have a banter like brother and sister, which is how the spirit of that whole panel was. Yet that image was taken out to represent some kind of sexual misconduct, and that wasn’t my intent. The first person, when I heard about the fervor, I called Sarah, I said, ├óΓé¼╦£I love you, I see you as my sister,’ and she said, ├óΓé¼╦£I feel the same way about you.’ And so I let it go.”

We don’t understand! Just because someone is a close friend doesn’t mean you can just lift their skirt up! It’s not right! WTF!!!

The 49-year-old again reiterated what he told his sons after the incident and backlash:

“I said to my sons again, I said, ├óΓé¼╦£The only thing you can do is represent your moral compass and who you are. Because images are going to be out there without your control, so continue standing in your integrity.'”

Seriously, guys, don’t lift up a woman’s skirt. It’s fucking inappropriate.
