Ted Cruz Just 'Liked' A Hardcore Porn Video On Twitter

Sen. Ted Cruz on Why His Twitter Account Left a ❤️ on Porn

Cruz hadn't addressed the issue on his Twitter account as of early Tuesday morning. It vanished from his page just before 1:30 a.m.

Since "likes" are public - someone noticed that Cruz's account had clicked the 'ol heart button for that particular post. and it spread through social media like wildfire. It was swiftly unliked almost an hour later, and we couldn't post it here even if it was still up. "I thought maybe I'd feel better if two or three people knew".

It's unclear who was responsible for the like or if Cruz's account was hacked.

While everyone was preparing for bed or already catching some sleep, Cruz was scanning through social media and watching his favorite pornos.

Cruz has yet to publicly comment on the incident.

Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier soon addressed the senator's late night Twitter activity and said "the offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter".

It's still probably not as bad a day for him as May 3, 2016, but it's got to be up there. You can make it through this Tuesday. That lesson being: If you're using the official account of a politician with millions of followers, you might want to double check which account you're liking tweets from before you go liking a porn video where everyone can see it.
