The timeline just got a whole lot darker. 

Still recovering from getting roasted for the time the Texas GOP tried to go after Beto O’Rourke for being cool, Ted Cruz has made a last ditch effort to be relatable.

Cruz tweeted a picture of the Zodiac Killer’s cryptic cipher on Wednesday, adding a festive “Happy Halloween.” 

It’s not the first time Cruz has acknowledged the meme that claims he was the the Zodiac Killer. Last year, he replied to a tweet with the same cipher. 

This time around, it didn’t go over so well. Twitter users chastised him for trying to jump in on the joke. 

As a lifelong Texas voter I am very disappointed that Ted Cruz would be so flip about a real-life serial killer. I was planning on voting a straight GOP ticket, but now I’m thinking about holding my nose and voting for Beto just to make a statement.

Others posted their own ciphers. 

Most Twitter users thought Cruz’s attempt at being relatable was distasteful, considering the Zodiac Killer’s murder spree claimed at least five victims. The killer remains unknown.
