Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a man who once denounced birth control by using the word ‘abortifacient’ to describe the Plan B pill, sent Twitter users abuzz when he liked an adult video out of his official account.
The video in question was originally posted by @SexuallPosts and depicts a pretty graphic two-minute porn clip. Cruz’s account liked the video late Monday, and it was listed at the top of his recent Twitter likes for about an hour. Soon after the post was removed and reported to Twitter.
“The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter,” Cruz’s spokesperson, Catherine Frazier, tweeted Tuesday morning at 2:17 a.m.
It may have been removed, but screenshots are forever.
Thank you. @tedcruz— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) September 12, 2017

It's even more beautiful as a haiku.
I suppose we all have our own ways of remembering 9/11, but I was taken aback by Ted Cruz's approach.— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) September 12, 2017
Also amid the social media reaction, Cruz’s former Princeton roommate, screenwriter Craig Mazin, said the senator’s internet activity brought back unsavory college memories.
Now imagine Ted Cruz is doing this four feet below you in the bottom bunk bed.— Craig Mazin (@clmazin) September 12, 2017
Yes, my misery very much appreciates your company.
Sadly, the fact that Ted Cruz jacks off to mediocre porn spam is the most human thing we can say about him. This is actually his high point.— Craig Mazin (@clmazin) September 12, 2017
Cruz has yet to make a statement regarding the Twitter activity.
