The politician faces calls for resignation after he and his family were caught on Wednesday in the resort of Cancun, Mexico, trying to escape the aftermath of winter storm Uri, which left hundreds of thousands of Texas residents without heat and electricity, and clean water for some at sub-zero temperatures.
The embarrassed Republican senator flew back to Texas Thursday night to face the riot. He admitted that this was “obviously a mistake,” and now Kacey has decided to sell a new piece of merchandise to investigate Cruz’s controversy – all in the name of charity.
The Follow Your Arrow hitmaker teased the idea on Twitter for the first time on Thursday and said to her fans: “Link is coming soon. DOES NOT EXPIRE anywhere … “
Hours later, she returned with a website link to the white t-shirt that said, “Cruzin ‘for a Bruzin'”.
“Texas is cold, I can be cold,” she wrote next to the tweet, a piece with the lyrics to her title Slow Burn, in which she originally sang: “Texas is hot, I can be cold”.
Priced at $ 29.99 (£ 21.55), the shirts will only be available through Sunday. All proceeds go to local charities such as Feed The People Dallas and the American Red Cross in central and south Texas.
In addition to listing the websites, Kacey notes that she is not asking people to be beaten up: “No real bruises, please,” she pleaded.
On Friday morning, the musician revealed that her novelty item had already helped her raise $ 50,000 for good causes.
“Life gave us lemons and honestly I’m only here to serve innocent lemonade,” she wrote.
