HBO’s True Blood Offends the Republicans!
July 23, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
In Episode 5 of Season 7, Pam Utters a One-Liner and Offends a Political Party:
For HBO’s truebie fans, a social agenda and foul words are as common to witness in each episode of True Blood as fangs, gore and sex! But it seems this time that HBO’s resident snarky vampire, Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), has topped the lot as far as offending goes. In Episode 5 (entitled Lost Cause) of Season 7, Pam uttered the following line:
Oh. My. God. I’m a Republic**t.
While many fans thought the line was hilarious, there were people out there who found it a less than flattering term to use for the Republican party – like republicans! But when Pam and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) crash a Ted Cruz fundraiser set at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas which then turns into a Yukuza supported massacre, it seems a more personal reply is needed. Ted Cruz took to social media afterwards to voice his opinion on Facebook:
Not happy with just this humorous right of reply, he then took to Twitter a couple of hours later:
Then again, I guess I never had a chance w/ the vampire vote since the dead tend to vote overwhelmingly for Dems: https://t.co/U6uCqsRpuS
