Celebrities React to Ted Cruz's Explicit Twitter Scandal

Also for the uninitiated, during the 2016 campaign, there was a new genre of literature called Ted Cruz erotica but let's not get into that right now.

However, with 3 million followers and a verified blue checkmark, the news took Twitter by storm with Twitterati ripping apart Cruz.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday at the Capitol, Cruz said, "There are a number of people on the team who have access to the account". The "like" caused the very explicit tweet from the account @SexuallPosts to appear briefly on that portion of Cruz's profile. But he's best-known for calling Cruz a "huge a$$hole" and mocking him on Twitter-which he did, with vigor, following the p0rn controversy.

"As we watched these graphic pictures fill our screens, wide-eyed, no one said a word", he wrote. Ted Cruz said Tuesday that a pornographic video that was "liked" by his account has been removed and reported to Twitter.

Twitter prohibits pornography on its platform.

The evangelical Christian, who has called same-sex marriage the "very definition of tyranny", accidentally featured a lesbian adult star in a presidential campaign advert a year ago.

The screenwriter didn't hold back after it emerged that Cruz's office defended a law banning the sale of sex toys while he was the former state solicitor general. Marco Rubio attack ad that aired after learning the actress they hired for the commercial was softcore porn veteran Amy Lindsay.
