Fake nudes: Ocasio-Cortez slams right wing ‘frothing’ after naked picture hoax

Fake nudes: Ocasio-Cortez slams right wing ‘frothing’ after naked picture hoax

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has slammed “disgusting” Conservative media for publishing a fake naked image of her in a stinging rebuke of Republican efforts to smear her. She also took aim at the Daily Mail.

The Daily Caller, owned by Fox News host Tucker Carlson, published what it said was being described as a “nude selfie” of the Democratic congresswoman on Monday.

However, the image in question has been doing the rounds on Reddit for a month, and has already been debunked. The Daily Caller article even acknowledges it’s not the congresswoman in its article.  

Ocasio-Cortez responded to the false photo story on Twitter, accusing Republicans of “losing their mind + frothing at the mouth all week,” and said the naked picture hoax was “just a matter of time.” 

The New York congresswoman also called out Daily Mail reporter Ruth Styles for visiting her boyfriend’s family and offering “cash for ‘stories.’”  

The nude ‘selfie’ is the latest effort to undermine “America’s favourite commie” Ocasio-Cortez, whose identification as a democratic socialist alarms elements of the Republican party.

A video of her dancing in college, shared in an apparent bid to embarrass her, backfired spectacularly when she became an instant meme and was instead celebrated for being relatable.
