Cape Town - While politicians across the United States took to social media to honour those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, one politician set tongues wagging for all the wrong reasons.

Twitter went ablaze on Monday night when a Twitter account, seemingly belonging to a senator from Texas, ‘liked’ a two-minute hardcore pornographic video.

According to ABC News, Ted Cruz, who gained global fame during the 2016 US Presidential election, clicked the heart icon on the tweet by @SexualPosts.

Users instantly noticed the distasteful deed and reactions were in overflow.

Jimmy Kimmel even had something to say about it, tweeting: “Well done @TedCruz using the power of ‘like’ to illustrate the evils of porn #Weiner.”

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the post, which has now been deleted, showed two women and a man engaging in explicit acts which are considered hardcore pornography.

Making matters worse, pornography is banned on Twitter.

Although it’s unclear whether Cruz was the one who liked the tweet or someone who had access to his account, it didn’t stop the mockery flung his way.
