The Dallas Morning News was chastised for publishing a “utterly classless piece” on Sen. Ted Cruz’s 13-year-old daughter and a TikTok video she made discussing the benefits and drawbacks of being the kid of a politician.

The report centered on a 13-year-TikTok old’s video in which she explored the advantages and disadvantages of being the daughter of a senator. Cruz is the father of two children, ages ten and thirteen.

According to the narrative, many politicians’ children disagree with their parents, using former President Ronald Reagan’s son, Ron, as an example.

“But politicians raising Generation Z children have to contend with a ready access to social media that previous generations never did,” the piece said.

According to Newsweek, her TikTok account has now been changed to private, but fragments of the video are still spreading on other sites.

Other opponents, like Republican Texas state Senator Drew Springer, pounced on the tale. In a tweet, he warned the publication and several of its workers not to approach him.
