Ted Cruz is coming under fire.
Late Wednesday night (February 17), Twitter erupted after the 50-year-old Texas Senator was photographed boarding a plane to Cancun while his state is in the middle of a crisis.
“Just confirmed @SenTedCruz and his family flew to Cancun tonight for a few days at a resort they’ve visited before. Cruz seems to believe there isn’t much for him to do in Texas for the millions of fellow Texans who remain without electricity/water and are literally freezing,” journalist David Shuster tweeted along with photos of Cruz aboard the plane.
Texas is currently experiencing a historic deep freeze, which has killed at least 21 people and knocked out power to more than 4 million people across the state.
After the photos went viral, users – including celebrities – took to Twitter to slam Cruz for traveling to the island while leaving his state to fend for its self.
“Ted Cruz tweeting a glowing tribute to Rush Limbaugh from a resort in Cancun (where he flew tonight while his constituents are literally freezing to death) is peak @GOP,” Padma Lakshmi tweeted.
Senator Ted Cruz has not addressed his trip to Cancun yet.
