Before the dust could settle on Cruz's Canun trip fiasco a mariachi band showed up outside his home on Sunday, February 22, filling the air with traditional music, said reports. A video posted on Twitter shows five musicians sporting sombreros and charro outfits played the traditional music with loud trumpets.

The band was organized by Adam Jama of Carrollton, Texas, who set up a GoFundMe page for the band to play, reported WTRF. The page adds that all donations will directly go to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. “Senator Cruz, being an amazing dad, dropped off his family in Cancun in the middle of a major crisis and came back to Texas to continue serving his constituents. We want to thank Senator Cruz for his leadership and pay for an amazing Mariachi band to perform for him. No one should go to Cancun and not listen to Mariachi,” reads the tongue-in-cheek page, which raised $1,946 of its $1,000 goal when this article was published. One woman donated $25 “in memory of Ted Cruz.”

Cruz said he apparently went on his widely condemned trip because he wanted to be a "good dad" to his daughters who wanted to go on a week-long vacation. And so, in the midst of a historic winter storm that has left 4.3 million Texas residents without power and million others without drinking water, Cruz embarked on the holiday. Before social media users could get over his Cancun fiasco, a Mariachi has made rounds on Internet. "Who sent the mariachi band to @tedcruz’s house today?!?!?  #CancunCruz," Twitter user Ryan Graney shared. Check the video below:



 

The tweet has since gone viral as many social media users shared laughs over it. "People hired a Mariachi band to play outside Ted Cruz’s house lmfaoooooo," one tweeted. "I really don't like to play that "Democrats are this, Republicans are that" game, so of course I'm going to play it. Democrat protestors are much funnier than Republican protestors," another user said. 'It's them Antifajita protesters again!' joked yet another.



 



 

 



 

At the same time, there are many on Twitter who are calling out this kind of a demonstration, despite the fact that it is funny. "1st this is hilarious. 2nd I wish I had thought of it. 3rd don't you all think demonstrating at someones house is crossing a line? I have some Trump level anger for Cruz but he has a child. She isn't responsible for his father's sins. That shit has to stop," one user tweeted. "Stop going to demonstrate at people’s homes. It’s atrocious," another user concurred. "Am I the only one who finds the home protests disturbing? Whatever the issue, families (especially kids) don't deserve to be traumatized. Yes, I know his family is in Cancun," another user wrote. 



 



 



 

After he faced flak on social media, Cruz flew back to Houston on Thursday. It was a day after he and his family were photographed boarding a jet for Cancun. Upon returning to Texas, Cruz admitted the trip was "obviously a mistake". He took to Twitter to share images of delivering water and meeting with Texans. He wrote "Texas Strong" in the tweet. Even for this tweet, he faced flak. "This gaslighting motherfucker. Fuck Ted Cruz," one wrote. "First you abandon your constituents, now they are crisis photo opps to you? Do you have any shame at all @tedcruz?" another wrote.
