AOC Triggered, Claps Back Over Criticism of Her Fake Southern Accent in Speech to Black Audience

Dem Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez clapped back at critics Friday who pointed out her cringe-worthy fake southern accent while she was speaking to a predominantly black audience at National Action Network’s annual convention.

AOC took a page from Hillary Clinton and spoke in a contrived southern drawl.

Ocasio-Cortez asserted, “I’m proud to be a bartender. Ain’t nothing wrong that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail…There is nothing wrong with preparing that your neighbors will eat,” while adopting the unnatural accent.

Conservatives on social media trolled the heck outta AOC and criticized her bizarre accent.

 

Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at critics Friday evening in a pair of tweets, calling reports on her “conspiracy mills.”

“Folks talking about my voice can step right off. Women’s March & Kavanaugh speech, same. Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up. My Spanish is the same way. These conspiracy mills are 🚮.” AOC said.

In a second tweet, AOC said it’s “hurtful” to see every aspect of her life “weaponized” against her.

“As much as the right wants to distort & deflect, I am from the Bronx. I act & talk like it, *especially* when I’m fired up and especially when I’m home. It is so hurtful to see how every aspect of my life is weaponized against me, yet somehow asserted as false at the same time,” she said.


Welcome to life as a public figure, darling.
