Ted Cruz proves once again that he shouldn’t be on Twitter

December 18th, 2017 at 11:07 PM
Mark Hamill vs. Ted Cruz

It’s Star Wars season but that doesn’t mean The Last Jedi is the only thing we care about right now. Last week, the FCC repealed the Obama-era net neutrality rules, “freeing” the internet in a move opposed by most internet users, regardless of their political affiliations.

Mark Hamill took to Twitter to criticize FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s misleading net neutrality video, only to find himself in a Twitter battle against Ted Cruz. You can easily guess who won, but it doesn’t make it any less fun to relive.

Why did Hamill go after Pai in the first place? Well, the FCC chief used Star Wars gear to explain that, even after net neutrality is dead, you’ll be able to enjoy the same internet perks. Luke Skywalker took offense at that on Saturday:

And it was Senator Ted Cruz that felt he should answer Hamill, and educate him on net neutrality with the help of Star Wars references:

The fact that Cruz linked Vader to net neutrality isn’t the only crazy thing about the tweet above. The Senator also misspelled Hamill’s name. However, the actor was quick to catch that error.

Hamill then delivered the perfect response, complete with the Cruz porn reference you may have seen coming:

That tweet alone got almost 200,000 likes, so it’s pretty clear who won that fight.

Cruz did not take that one very well:

And he went on to spread more net neutrality “facts.”

Then again, maybe it wasn’t Cruz handling the Twitter account. Maybe it was an aide.

Chris Smith started writing about gadgets as a hobby, and before he knew it he was sharing his views on tech stuff with readers around the world. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
