Ted Cruz is the most hated man in America. The senator was heavily criticized for jetting off to sunny Cancun, Mexico, while his constituents froze to death.

Cruz, wearing a Texas flag print mask, hurried back to Texas on Thursday morning, as angry Texans called on him to resign his Senate seat.

But the story gets worse. Photos circulating on social media shows Cruz abandoned his poodle, Snowflake, at home alone without heat or lights.

Michael Hardy, a reporter for New York magazine’s Intelligencer, stopped by Cruz’s home in the exclusive River Oaks neighborhood. There, he photographed the lonely pooch peeking out a glass pane in the front door.

“Is this Senator Cruz’s house?” the reporter asked a man who stepped out of a vehicle parked in the driveway.

The man, who identified himself as a security guard, told Hardy he was there to check on Snowflake.

“Just drove by Ted Cruz’s house in Houston. His lights are off but a neighbor told me the block got its power back last night. Also, Ted appears to have left behind the family poodle,” he wrote.

Cruz claimed his daughters asked him to take them on vacation – and the tickets were already booked before the power outages.

Power has been restored to about 80% of residences in Texas, but many people are still without electricity and clean water.

To add insult to injury, some power company customers were hit with massive electric bills averaging $2.32 per kilowatt hour.

Twitter user @KatandTonyT shared a copy of her most recent power bill for a whopping $3,801.16.

She wrote:

“When your electric company tells you to switch but there has been a hold on switching for over a week now. Using as little as possible 1300 sq ft house and this is my bill. How is this fair. I only paid $1200 for the whole 2020 year.”

Burger King is under fire for tweeting a blatant sexiest comment on International Women’s Day that read: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

Shortly after posting their tweet, they followed up with a series of other tweets clarifying that “If they want to, of course, about 20% of chefs are women” and announcing a scholarship to “assist female Burger King workers in pursuing their culinary dreams.”

On Twitter, many users are taking what intended to be a market ploy personally and are taking issue with the fact that women are, once again, the butt of the joke.

NYC Woman Finds Hole Behind Her Bathroom Mirror Leading to Strange Secret Apartment

It’s almost “Candyman” come to life.

A New York City woman discovered an entire empty apartment located through a hole behind her bathroom mirror — and videos of her solving the mystery and making the unsettling discovery have gone viral on TikTok.

Samantha Hartsoe was trying to find the source of cold air that was blowing into her Roosevelt Island apartment, and soon found that the air was coming from behind the bathroom mirror. She removed the mirror to find a fairly large square hole in the wall.

She continued to film as she peered through, finding a dark room on the other side — and a hallway leading to possibly more. She quickly decided she had to go in and see what was in there.

“Curiosity killed the cat, curiosity is going to kill me,” Hartsoe told NBC New York. “I can’t not know what’s on the other side of my bathroom.”

After gearing up — complete with a facemask and armed with a hammer — she finds a way to get through the hole, despite some concern from her roommates.

“Every corner I would walk normal and then be like [moving her head] to check,” Hartsoe said.”

As she kept on with her investigation, she found more and more of the unfinished apartment on the other side of the hole. She explored both floors, and made sure to lock the front door to the empty apartment. After finding plenty of filled trash bags, and thankfully no spirits, Hartsoe returned back to go back through the hole, back to her apartment.

“My roommates definitely thought I was going to be dead. When I came back they were excited,” she said.

Nearly eight million viewers on TikTok were captivated by Hartsoe’s journey, captured in a series of four videos. She isn’t sure why so many people were drawn to her videos, chalking it up to possible boredom or maybe a bit of wistful hope shared by all apartment dwellers.

“I think everybody in New York has such small apartments, you don’t know what you’re going to find and everyone’s hoping for more space,” Hartsoe said.

She has contacted the maintenance department, which is scheduled to address the hole behind her mirror tomorrow. Hartsoe said she has not yet contacted the landlord.
