Fox News triggered progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after they called her by the wrong name, claiming the network did it intentionally.

“By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Cortez,'” she tweeted Wednesday.

“which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic [and] probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them.”

Ocasio-Cortez aimed Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity, referring to them as “Ingra,” “Carl” and “Hann” in an attempt to prove a point.

But the congresswoman's complaint does not seem to add up. 

Tom Elliott, the founder of Grabien media-clipping service, said that after searching from the beginning of March to the current date, amounting to 20 days of programming, there was no proof that Ingraham ever referred to the Democrat as “Cortez.”

Another search left Hannity as the only possible offender, who referred to Ocasio-Cortez by just the second half of her last name just twice in 20 days.

He did name her correctly over 100 times in that same timeframe.

Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation was a response to a segment from Ingraham’s show Tuesday where the host and guest Joe di Genova accused the New York Rep. of turning her accent 'on and off' when it suited her.

Hillary Clinton was known to revert to her Arkansas accent when campaigning in certain parts of the country.
