Smith issued a short tweet Thursday comparing the Republican frontrunner with the independent, who is actually a 15-year-old Iowa boy named Brady Olson.

“Deez Nutz > Donald Trump” Smith tweeted, misspelling the fictional candidate’s last name.

A Facebook page purporting to be the official page for the Deez Nuts camapign took Smith’s tweet as a show of support.

“Former NFL WR Torrey Smith has been the latest person to endorse Deez Nuts for the White House,” the post on the Deez Nuts for President 2016 page reads.

Deez Nuts made headlines when the Public Policy Polling group released data showing the candidate was polling at 9 percent in North Carolina.
