Who is Tim Boyd and what did he say about the crisis?
The mayor of Colorado City called residents "lazy" in a now deleted Facebook post, according to reports.
Millions of residents in Texas are struggling without power due to a winter storm.
"No one owes you or your family anything; nor is it the local government's responsibility to support you during trying times like this!" Boyd wrote, according to KVIA.
"Sink or swim it's your choice! The City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING!!"
He added: "If you are sitting at home in the cold because you have no power and are waiting for someone to come rescue you because you're lazy, is a direct result of your raising!
"Bottom line quit crying and looking for a handout! Get off your ass and take care of your own family!"
The mayor of the small Texas town apologized and resigned after making the comments.
