Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, and some other cast members of American Horror Story: Roanoke all got together for a panel discussion at the 34th annual PaleyFest in Los Angeles on Sunday. Since Cuba seems to be currently starring in his own personal series called American Mess Story, Cuba decided to give everyone in the audience an eye-full of Sarah’s ass by yanking at the back of her skirt. As you may have guessed, some people were not having it.
It all went down as Kathy walked on stage. Sarah went to greet her and present her to the audience, while Cuba – who was seated beside Sarah – played an inappropriate game of “I see London.”

Here’s a better angle. And by “better“, I of course mean a better angle to take in Sarah trying to laugh off Cuba’s shamelessness.

As The Daily Mail points out, not everyone was laughing as much as Sarah. The internet had a whole lot to say about it. Namely, that Cuba was acting like a straight-up perv. The Daily Mail points out that Sarah and Cuba joked around with each other after it happened, which either means it wasn’t that big of a deal to Sarah or that she’s an actress who is really good at pretending she didn’t want to slap him across the face.
Someone needs to sit Cuba down and remind him that crafting a legacy as a creep in the throws of a mid-life crisis is a marathon, not a sprint. I mean, he only filed for divorce from his wife of twenty years a couple of months ago. Pace yourself with your, Cuba. You’re making all the other middle-aged recently-divorced sleazebags look bad.
Here’s more of Sarah, Cuba, and Kathy before that uncomfortable upskirt moment yesterday.
