8-Year-Old 'Mini AOC' Impersonator Receives Death Threats from Liberal Activists
Parents forced to shut down social media accounts for young Ocasio-Cortez impersonator
The 8-year-old Ocasio-Cortez impersonator, known as "Mini AOC," has received a series of death threats from "liberal" activists, according to reports.
The young girl's family has been forced to stop producing content impersonating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) after allegedly becoming overwhelmed by harassment, doxxing, and death threats from the Democrat congresswoman's supporters.
The videos were apparently too much to bear for some liberal activists, however, who attacked the young girl with a torrent of online abuse.
On Wednesday, a Twitter account purportedly run by a parent of Martinez posted: "Ava will not being [sic] doing any more MINI AOC content.
"The Left's Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family.
"We have been getting calls on our personal numbers.
"For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts."

The Left's Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family. We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers.
For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts.
The Instagram account for Mini AOC had been pulled down as of this writing, and all content from the purported parent's account had been deleted with the exception of the message notifying its 90,000 followers that the harassment had become too much.
OANN's Jack Posobiec reported that the official Twitter account for Mini AOC had also been removed from the platform.

"What a world we live in," one Twitter user said in response to the news.
"No problem making fun of, harassing, threatening our President, but if you make fun of
@AOC you get death threats.
"This isn't even American anymore."
Ava, aka “Mini AOC,” took social media by storm earlier this year by shredding the celebrity Democrat with her uncanny impressions.
In her videos, the child actress dons a look similar to the New York lawmaker – lipstick and glasses – matching Ocasio-Cortez’s inflections, and "like totally" mocking what some say are the real AOC’s child-like propositions.
Ava's stepfather, Salvatore Schachter, posted the first video to social media, and it was an instant viral hit.
“Like, I want to talk about, like, climate change,” Martinez said in one of the spoofs.
"Because, like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change.
“Like, in July, the climate was 96 degrees and in February the climate was 36 degrees.
"OMG, like that’s a huge change in the climate!” she added.
