Ted Cruz Likes Porn Video

Arch-Social Conservative Ted Cruz “Likes” Porn On Twitter

Views: 78

Ted Cruz is in a bit of a bind this week following reports that his official Twitter account “liked” a porn video posted on the popular social media platform.

Originally tweeted by the handle @SexuallPosts, the video in question includes two woman and a man in a lewd situation.

Cruz’ senior communications advisor Catherine Frazier responded to the social medial snafu, remarking that “the offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.”

How exactly this could have happened remains a mystery. A common strategy used by various accounts on Twitter is to “like” many posts or “follow” many accounts at a time, thereby appearing in other user’s feeds and attracting attention. Was someone on Cruz’ team deploying a similiar strategy? Maybe.

The account could also have been hacked.

The debacle is particularly ironic because Cruz is a staunch social conservative who — as solicitor general of Texas in 2007 — once argued for banning sex toys. Held up to this week’s embarrassing situation, his moral sanctimoniousness is comical to say the least, and has inspired a number of reactions on Twitter.
