Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez exploded over the ad showing her image burn

Celebrity socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) exploded on Twitter after she was triggered by a Republican anti-socialism commercial that shows an image of the Democrat lawmaker burning.

The ad, aired Thursday night during the Democratic Debate on ABC, brands AOC as "the face of socialism" and shows her photo burning away to reveal a pile of human skulls.

The commercial features AOC's smiling face being burned ahead of photographs of skulls from the 1970s Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia.

During this period, communist leader Pol Pot's regime claimed the lives of an estimated two million people.

The ad shows images of malnourished Asian children and dead bodies to illustrate the reality of a socialist regime and the "horrors" of "socialism" and "forced obedience."

Ocasio-Cortez erupted when the ad aired, accusing Republicans of trying to convince the public they "aren't racist" and branding the commercial a "love letter to the GOP's white supremacist base."

"Republicans are running TV ads setting pictures of me on fire to convince people they aren’t racist. Life is weird," AOC said in one tweet. 

"Know that this wasn't an ad for young conservatives of color - that was the pretense," an additional tweet stated.

"What you just watched was a love letter to the GOP's white supremacist base."

The ad was narrated by aspiring Asian-American lawmaker Elizabeth Heng who fired back at AOC with a tweet of her own.

"Not Republicans. Me," Heng, who lost her bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Joe Costa (D-CA) in last November's midterm elections, said in response to AOC's tweet.

"Are you really calling me a racist @aoc?" she asked.

"I'm calling all Democrats out for supporting an evil ideology.

"Or are you just in Congress to hang out with celebrities and tweet out ridiculous ideas like the green new deal?"

In the ad, Heng refers to AOC directly as "the face of socialism and ignorance," before asking if the "Squad" member understand "the horror of socialism." 

"My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life," Heng continues in her narration.

"THAT'S socialism - forced obedience, starvation."

The word "socialism" appears on the screen ahead of Weng's face.

"Mine is a face of freedom," she says.

"My skin is not white. I'm not outrageous, racist, or socialist. I'm a Republican."

Several far-left Twitter users condemned the ad along with AOC.

Democratic Coalition Co-founder Scott Dworkin criticized ABC for airing the commercial, suggesting it could incite extremists and put the Congresswoman's life in jeopardy.

"ABC can go to hell," he tweeted.

"Running propaganda with a picture of @AOC being set on fire, with dead bodies & skulls in the background, was absolutely despicable. People need to be fired over this. It’s ridiculous & evil."

Comedian Sarah Silverman chimed in as well.

"That ad was so aggressively insane," she tweeted.
