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.”

Period. https://t.co/KuHJ75sdMg— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 10, 2019
The New York congresswoman also called out Daily Mail reporter Ruth Styles for visiting her boyfriend’s family and offering “cash for ‘stories.’”
For those out of the loop, Republicans began to circulate a fake nude photo of me. The @DailyCaller reposted it (!) and refused to indicate it was fake in the title as well.Completely disgusting behavior from Conservative outlets.No wonder they defended Kavanaugh so fiercely.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 10, 2019
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.
