Celebrities are simultaneously slamming and mocking Ted Cruz after he reportedly “liked” a pornographic clip on Twitter. The Texas senator appeared to “like” the X-rated video late Monday night, but his spokesperson has since claimed he was hacked, though Cruz himself later suggested a staffer “inadvertently” clicked the “like” button. See stars’ reaction tweets below.

The explicit video in question was originally shared by an account called @SexuallPosts and through Cruz’s “like,” the footage appeared to spread on social media. Cruz’s Senior Communications Adviser, Catherine Frazier, later insisted the conservative politician was hacked. She said in a statement posted on social media early Tuesday morning, “The offensive tweet posted on @Tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.” Predictably, his “like” was detected before it was removed, prompting a number of stars to blast Cruz and poke fun at the one-time, family values Republican presidential candidate.

Among those reacting to Cruz seemingly “liking” pornographic material on social media was Jimmy Kimmel, who offered, “Well done @TedCruz using the power of ‘like’ to illustrate the evils of porn #Weiner.” Ellen Page tweeted, “@tedcruz should probs get more attention 4 spending his career discriminating against lgbtq/women/poc than liking a porn vid. #justathought.” And Kathy Griffin simply expressed, “Thank you. @tedcruz.”

Another celebrity weighing in on the Texas senator’s Twitter “like” was Billy Eichner, who wrote, “Only thing about Ted Cruz that I relate to. @tedcruz Try Tumblr, dear.” Zach Braff joked, “Ted Cruz will say he got hacked… Ted Cruz will say it was a rogue staffer but…” The “Scrubs” actor added, “When you were thinking of watching porn, but now you’re torn because the Ted Cruz tweets are lit.” Anthony Bourdain amusingly noted, “I’m doing a Kickstarter to buy Ted Cruz a Fleshlight.” And Samantha Bee wrote, “Don’t forget to vote in the New York primary today! And that Ted Cruz was spankin’ it on 9/11.”

Meanwhile, Patton Oswalt offered, “Quick take: cruz porn yuck.” James Gunn said, “My Mom found a condom in my wallet when I was 15. I told her I was holding it for a friend. That friend is now apparently a Ted Cruz staffer.” Kal Penn quipped, “Ted Cruz One Cup.” Josh Gad joked, “Tonight in our darkest hour #tedcruz has brought the country together. Thank you.” And Chelsea Handler sarcastically expressed, “I can’t believe someone in ted cruz’s office likes to watch porn. I wonder who that crazy sick f**k is?” Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities react to Cruz seemingly “liking” a porn clip on Twitter.
