AOC’s tantrum about side-splitting parody account fuels mockery, Musk tweet adds to hilarity

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wasn’t amused by a viral Twitter parody account that has been tweeting out hilariously clueless statements that were too close to reality and pitched a fit, inviting more mockery of the thin-skinned socialist diva.

The previously suspended fake account named “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Press Release (parody)” which used the same picture from her own account is clearly marked as a joke but the left-wing congresswoman wasn’t laughing as it churned out posts over the holiday weekend including such jewels as “Cow farts are far more dangerous than fentanyl,” “Ron DeSantis is not my type,” and “Big shout-out to my BFF Kevin McCarthy for caving on the debt ceiling.”

One of the account’s tweets was noticed by Twitter owner Elon Musk with whom she has frequently clashed.

“This might be the wine talking, but I’ve got a crush on @elonmusk,” the account tweeted, drawing a fire emoji response from the billionaire SpaceX/Tesla CEO.

By Tuesday, AOC may have had enough and took to Twitter to put her legions of followers on notice that there was a faux account and that they should not fall for it, assuring them that she and her team are working on a response.

“FYI there’s a fake account on here impersonating me and going viral. The Twitter CEO has engaged it, boosting visibility,” she tweeted. “It is releasing false policy statements and gaining spread.”

“I am assessing with my team how to move forward. In the meantime, be careful of what you see,” added the cartoonish congresswoman.

The parody account, which was boosted even more by her reaction, hit back at Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez was also flogged by other Twitter users over her lack of a sense of humor.

Twitter’s misleading and deceptive identities policy shows that the “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Press Release” account, which is clearly marked as a parody, is within the rules.

“Accounts that depict another person, group, or organization in their profile to discuss, satirize, or share information about that entity are not in violation of this policy. While these accounts may use elements of another’s identity, they also include profile language or other indicators that inform people on Twitter that the account is not affiliated with the subject of the profile,” the policy states.

“To avoid confusing others about an account’s affiliation, Parody, Commentary, and Fan accounts must distinguish themselves in their account name and in their bio. Accounts that fail to sufficiently distinguish themselves are considered non-compliant and in violation of this policy,” according to Twitter.
