No, Ted Cruz Isn’t Having a Booty Call Raffle

No, Ted Cruz Isn’t Having a Booty Call Raffle

The “Netflix and chill” hoax

Back in April, the Ted Cruz campaign had a fundraiser in which one could win an afternoon “shooting with Ted,” so on the one hand, it’s not surprising that when a “Netflix and chill” fundraiser went out people believed it.

In other ways, however, because of the meaning of that phrase; it is surprising . . . simply because the Cruz campaign has been pretty savvy thus far about not making such cultural and social media faux pas.

And they didn’t this time–the entire thing turned out to be a Photoshopped hoax.

Mediaite reports:

Sigh.

No, Ted Cruz did not invite people to “Netflix and chill” with him, despite this pretty-clearly-Photoshopped image going around Twitter:

Photoshop hoax? Good! Cause Cruz is not my type.

“netflix and chill”? I had no idea that was a “thing”. Having never been a part of the hook up culture, I guess it’s not surprising.

‘Netflix and Chill’, translation for those raised in the 70s see; ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’, ‘Night Moves’, ‘Submarine Races’, etc.

It doesn’t surprise me that some of the 4chan, anonymous or even the kos kiddies might have put this together. It’s the kind of juvenile tweaking of the establishment that accomplishes their wet dreams: It makes a leading Republican candidate look bad by itself, it muddies the waters, it creates its own life after a while with the LIVs (did you hear what Sen. Cruz tweeted…).

Further, its a fun way for them to poke fun at the twitter universe by putting out a false tweet, then seeing the reactions, then seeing the Cruz campaign have to scramble telling everybody that this wasn’t their tweet. These morons thrive on chaos, and on watching the media jump to conclusions without all the facts.
