Ted Cruz Follows Twitter User With Profile Pic of Obama Being Lynched

It appears that the senator follows a Twitter user whose profile pic (also called an "avi") shows President Obama with a noose around his neck, presumably dead. Not only that but both of Cruz's Twitter accounts follow this user.

Gus from Little Green Footballs has discovered that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has questionable taste in who he chooses to follow on Twitter.

It appears that the senator follows a Twitter user called @_Molon_Labe whose profile pic (also called an "avi") shows President Obama with a noose around his neck, presumably dead. Not only that but all three of Cruz's Twitter accounts follow this user.

No word on whether Cruz's office has responded to this news. But I don't expect that he won't unfollow any time soon. The question is: why did Cruz follow this account in the first place?
