It was inevitable that Ted Cruz responded to the bloody and vicious episode of "True Blood" that name-dropped him. On his Facebook page, the U.S. Senator from Texas called the episode "misogynist and profanity-ridden."
In the Sunday, July 20 episode, Pam and Eric were looking for a girl responsible for a disease that was killing vampires. In their search, they went to Dallas to attend a fictitious gala for Texas senator Ted Cruz at the George W. Bush Presidential Library. Pam looked in the mirror as she prepared for the gala and said, "Oh my God, I am a Republic*nt".
Pam later said as she walked in to the venue, "Of all the horrible things I've seen in the past 100 years, this is going to be the most disturbing." The episode written by Craig Chester then saw the fundraising event devolved into a bloody massacre.
Taking it to his Facebook page on Tuesday, July 22, Cruz wrote, "Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO's 'True Blood' vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a 'Ted Cruz fundraiser'. Well, I'm sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends."
Two hours later he added in a tweet, "Now only a true politician could spin a vampire massacre into an allegation of Democratic voter fraud."
