Senator Ted Cruz ruined his Facebook Live broadcast Friday.

The former presidential nominee’s live chat with conservative radio host Mark Davis went viral but for the wrong reasons. An unidentified staffer filming the encounter on a smartphone suffered some “technical problems” halfway through.

Cruz, currently in a tight race with social media-savvy Democratic congressman Beto O’Rourke said his team “may not win IT department of the year.” He also repeatedly urged the smartphone-operator to remove their hand from over the camera’s lens.

Footage of the broadcast went trending on Twitter. It even drew the attention of Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti. Here’s what he said in response.

Twitter mocked Cruz for the rest of the day. One user tweeted “Ted Cruz going sideways on Facebook live. This joke is too easy. #BetoForSenate”

Another tweeted, “I didn’t know my mom was in charge of Ted Cruz’s Facebook live streams.”

Cruz and O’Roarke face off in a tightly contested race for the Senate on November 6.
