Republican senator Ted Cruz caught liking pornographic video on social media

A conservative senator in the USA has been caught "liking" a pornography post on Twitter.

Um. Ted Cruz, US senator from Texas, and former Republican presidential candidate, has found himself in a very embarrassing situation.

His communications director Catherine Frazier later tweeted: "The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter".

The activity has since been deleted from his page, but not before a screenshot was shared online. His verified Twitter account has liked a sexually explicit video on Twitter causing the two-minute porn clip to appear in his feed.

It's not unusual for the social media accounts of famous people to get hacked.

This is not the first time Cruz has been associated with porn. It claimed that its harmful effects had been "destroying the life of millions".

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter overnight, and it wasn't for anything he said or did in the realm of politics.

"We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children's safety", it said a year ago.

He was also part of a legal team that argued that Americans don't have the right to use sex toys.
