Twitter users responded with their own Halperin-inspired questions using #HalperinQuestions.

After the firestorm, Halperin publicly apologized for the interview via social media:

“In no way was I asking Senator Cruz to ‘prove’ he was an ‘authentic’ Latino. I apologize to those who were offended, and to Senator Cruz. I promise that I will work to make the tone and questions better next time,” said Halperin in a statement.
