A multiple award-winning producer and executive named Evan Shapiro came to the defense of LGBTQ Nation which ran a thinly veiled political hit piece against Senator Ted Cruz and his 13-year-old daughter Caroline ostensibly outing her as bisexual.
Contributing editor for The American Conservative, Sohrab Ahmari, tweeted in response to the article, “She’s 13, barely out of her tween years. You despicable perverts.”
To which Shapiro replied, “Cruz’ daughter is way more emotionally mature than her dad. Cancùn Cruz has endangered lives of Queer & Trans people w hate speech. Ted ‘digitally altered her photo for the family Christmas card to make her look more conservative.’ Sorry Sohrab, what was your deplorable point?”
LGBTQ Nation’s blatant attempt at weaponizing the sexuality of a 13-year-old girl for political gain is seen by many as not only disturbing and disgusting but downright evil. Twitchy referred to Shapiro and LGBTQ Nation as “human garbage” concerning the attack.

According to LGBTQ Nation, Cruz’s daughter made a TikTok video to gripe about her father’s conservative politics and to declare herself as being bisexual. After the video went viral, she made her account private.
“A lot of people judge me based upon him at first glance,” she said. “But I really disagree with most of his views.”
When asked about her bisexuality, Caroline Cruz reportedly replied, “I haven’t told him yet, I’m kind of nervous about it tbh but I don’t think he would be mad about it.”
There was a time in politics that children under 18 were off-limits. Not so much anymore evidently.
Ian Miles Cheong commented on Twitter what many are thinking concerning this degraded attack, “She’s a child. What the hell is wrong with you?”

“Ted Cruz’s daughter is 13 years old. This is exploitation of a minor and disgusting ethical malpractice on the part of the media. Stop this. Leave her alone,” Meghan McCain demanded as well.

And the ratio went on and on and on against LGBTQ Nation:

This is the kind of crap that only hurts your cause.
She’s a kid that just happens to by a pol’s daughter. She is finding her way in life and you are using her as a political tool.

Tweeting about child sexuality is a bad look, but that’s kind of your brand.

You just outed someone who said she hasn’t told her father…

From a group that’s pretty touchy about what people say about your community, you thought it was a good idea to write about a 13 year old kid. You self-involved, self righteous bastards.

Leave the kids alone. I don’t care which political party their parents represent, and how much of a “social media hero” you might get.
I’m old enough to remember when experimentation was just that. Leave it be.

You people are assholes, I don’t care what side of the political fence you are on this is beyond the pale.
