    Liking something on social media by accident is way too easy, and Senator Ted Cruz has just learned it the hard way. His official Twitter account faved a nasty pornographic video and, obviously, this hilariously vulgar like just couldn’t slip through the net.

    On early September 12th, hawk-eyed internet users caught Ted Cruz "red-handed" as his Twitter account liked an extremely explicit porn video from the account @SexuallPosts. The hurricane of mixed reactions swept through the social media platform.

    ​Within minutes after his unfortunate like, Ted Cruz was trending on Twitter, and gleeful network users were having so much fun with this whole situation.

    The two-minute porn video was seen among the Senator's "liked" posts for some 40 minutes before it was un-faved, but screenshots live forever.

    Though the video wasn't posted on his account but was liked by it, Catherine Frazier, senior communications adviser to the Texas Senator later wrote that "the offensive tweet" was deleted.

    Even those who manage the account that originally posted the pornographic content got involved in this craze.

    Some Twitter users noticed a vague resemblance of a blonde woman from the porn video with Cruz's wife Heidi.

    The Christian libertarian and former Presidential nominee is known for his strong religious convictions and family values stance.

    Several netizens pointed out the "wrong timing" of the incident — the anniversary of the attacks on the Trade Center and Pentagon.

    According to others, the occurrence made Cruz more "relatable."
