Ted Cruz accidentally hit Heidi Cruz in the face with his fist and elbow seconds after dropping out of the presidential race on Tuesday, and images of the awkward husband-wife moment spread like wildfire on social media.




Cruz announced he was ending his campaign after losing to Donald Trump 53 percent to 36 percent in Indiana.

After embracing his wife, the senator leaned in to give his father, Raphael, a hug, accidentally bumping Heidi in the face with both his fist and elbow.

For many, the image brought to mind another awkward moment: Cruz fumbling Carly Fiorina's hand as he announced her as his running mate. Along with the Heidi Cruz hit, the hand-grab fumble also went viral on social media once again.



Twitter users lampooned Cruz for Tuesday's accidental smackdown, bringing his campaign to an ignominous end.
