Ted Cruz Likes Porn … Literally

Mega

The Twitter account for Ted Cruz liked a surprising tweet Monday night — graphic porn.

The liked tweet in question featured a woman watching two people have sex.

The Twitter account behind the tweet has taken advantage of the situation, tweeting, “Thanks for watching ted.” They’ve also changed their Twitter bio to read, “Follow for the Same Porn @TedCruz Watches.”

Cruz’s camp has yet to issue the usual “I was hacked!” denial, but his senior communications advisor tweeted, “The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.”

Someone is getting fired.

[UPDATE: According to Frank Thorp V of NBC News, Cruz explained the tweet Tuesday morning by saying, “There are a number of people on the team that have access to the account & it appears that someone inadvertently hit the like button … It was a staffing issue, and it was inadvertent, it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action.”]
