Embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was blasted online on Saturday after complaining about cancel culture and the "deep state" amid his salacious sex scandals.

Marx wasn't the only person with harsh words for the Florida man. Here's what others were saying:

If Alex Acosta had prosecuted Jeffrey Epstein and sentenced him appropriately men like Joel Greenberg and Matt Gaetz would have thought twice and running a child prostitution ring. Wealthy men have rarely pay for their insidious crimes. If you have a child in Florida be aware.

Thank goodness someone is finally standing up for men who pay children for sex.
