Ted Cruz concession ignites joke storm on social media
After getting pummeled in Indiana's Republican primary on Tuesday, Ted Cruz officially suspended his presidential campaign and immediately became the butt of every joke on Twitter.
One of the most common jokes was that Cruz was now free to go back to being the Zodiac Killer, referencing a recurring meme that has plagued Cruz for much of his campaign.
Click through reactions to Ted Cruz suspending presidential campaign:
"Ted Cruz dropped out of the POTUS race to pursue Zodiac Killing full time probs," read one tweet.

Some users celebrated the fact that Cruz was no longer in the running, but others were quick to point out that he still has a U.S. Senate seat to return to. "I was gonna laugh at Ted Cruz but then I remembered he's still one of my Senators, so the joke's still on Texas. Sigh," wrote one user.
