In January, his then-13-year-old daughter Caroline came out as bisexual and stated that she disagreed with many of her father’s political views.
The youngster stated that people are quick to criticize her based on her Republican father’s political views, despite the fact that she frequently disagrees with him.
She stated in a TikTok, “Many people make snap judgments about me based on him.” However, I disagree with the majority of his beliefs.
She also discussed the advantages and disadvantages of having a celebrity parent, criticizing their PR staff for shortening her blouse for the family Christmas card.
Caroline’s TikTok account @ caro iguess_, which has since been made private, began to garner new followers when her identity as the senator’s eldest daughter was revealed.
After a number of TikTokers inquired what it was like to be Cruz’s daughter, the adolescent created the video, which was re-posted on Twitter.
A Senator’s spokesperson stated that the event was a “family problem” and that Cruz’s girls were unharmed.
This is a family affair, and happily their daughter is unharmed. There were no major injuries reported. The family wishes that her privacy be respected at this time,’ the statement reads.
Cruz was not at home at the time of the event; he is now in Washington, D.C., and it is uncertain whether he will return home after the incident (pictured: a police car outside his home on Tuesday)
Caroline’s TikTok account became private after her video went viral, but not before social media users captured screenshots of her profile, in which she identified as bisexual and used the pronouns she/her.
Caroline responded to a query concerning her sexuality and if Cruz was aware of it by saying, “I haven’t told him yet, I’m kind of frightened to be honest, but I don’t believe he’d be upset about it.”
