Ted Cruz “Liked” a Porn Video on Twitter September 12, 2017

Ted Cruz’s Twitter account “liked” a video containing pornographic content yesterday (on September 11th). The video was from the Twitter account SexuallPosts, which regularly posts porn videos. The “like” was quickly removed once it made news.

Now Ted Cruz watching porn wouldn’t be a big deal if it wasn’t for the hypocrisy. Ted Cruz, a social conservative, regularly preaches “family values” and once tried to ban Texans from buying sex toys. He also took down one of his campaign ads once he realized an actor in the background, Amy Lindsay, was a former softcore porn actress.

Cruz also reflected on the time he had to show Supreme Court justices how easy it was to find porn on the internet. Cruz knew about searching the term “cantaloupe” to find some hardcore pornography. Cruz’s old college roommate said that Cruz also thought people should not masturbate. 

Ted Cruz has also spent much of his career trying to police people’s sexuality by fighting against gay people’s right to marry and taking away the sexual health services provided by Planned Parenthood.

As I write this, Cruz hasn’t made a statement, but one of his staffers told Twitter that the “offensive tweet” was taken down.

I’d be curious to hear the excuse Cruz has for “liking” the pornographic tweet. He may blame it on a staffer. He could blame it on being hacked. Or he could fess up to it and say he will try to fight his porn addiction with Jesus. I’m leaning towards thinking it will be one of the first two excuses.

The internet continues to enjoy the schadenfreude at Cruz’s expense. Even SexuallPosts thanked Cruz for watching their content! They then added in their Twitter tagline “the same porn that Ted Cruz watches.”
