U.S. Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) deleted a Twitter post in which he characterized Cyndi Lauper as "hot." The tweet, which came from his verified account, came after the two apparently came into contact:
"@cyndilauper great night,couldn't believe how hot u were.see you again next Tuesday.try a little tenderness," read the post which Politwoops, a site that collects deleted tweets from lawmakers, caught.
A spokesperson for Cohen told Politico "no comment" regarding the recanted message, and a rep for Lauper added that the two never actually met:
"No personal relationship, he may have been at that Memphis taping at White House earlier in the week that she performed at but she met a whole bunch of people that day."
On Thursday, Cohen praised Lauper's White House performance for Memphis Soul Night:
"While there were a lot of great performers there, I want to put a particular shout out to Miss Cyndi Lauper. She's special."
