Senator Ted Cruz Getting Slammed For Traveling to Cancun Amid Deadly Winter Storm in Texas

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.
