Sen. Ted Cruz explained on Tuesday that someone managing his Twitter account liked a pornographic tweet.

Speaking to reporter on Capitol HIll, the Texas senator said the tweet was the result of a “staffing issue,” and that one of the people with access to his Twitter account accidentally liked the tweet.

“It appears that someone inadvertently hit the like button,” Cruz said.

“When we discovered the post, which was I guess an hour or two later, we pulled it down. It was a staffing issue. And it was inadvertent, it was a mistake. It was not a deliberate act. We’re dealing with internally, but it was a mistake. It was not malicious.”

The moment traveled quickly on social media early on Tuesday, and Cruz joked that if he’d known that he could go viral, he may have tried liking a pornographic tweet during his 2016 bid for president.
