You’ve probably seen the cute little girl who has been going viral with her parody photos of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Just a few days ago, she recreated the photos of AOC visiting the border before she ran for office.
#MiniAOC was bullied by the left and the fake news media to the point of being forced to delete her social media accounts. She was too effective at showing @AOC’s hypocrisy and they had to get rid of her. AOC inspires hate and should resign. pic.twitter.com/qPLHutL1HZ

But after repeated harassment and death threats, the parents of Ava, who called herself “Mini AOC”, have decided to take the Twitter account down where the eight-year-old shared her parodies of the congresswoman.
“Ava will not being 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 phone numbers. For our safety and for our child’s safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts,” one of her parents wrote on their Twitter account.

While it was kind of funny the first time, it’s probably for the best that the account was taken down and even sadder that the reason behind it was because people were threatening a child.
It’s never a good idea to exploit/expose a child to the internet mob and it sounded like the family was hoping to profit off her internet fame – before the account was disabled the mother of “Mini AOC” had listed an e-mail address to contact for outlets looking to book her.
While @AOC provides plenty of material worthy of mocking, it sure looks like @miniAOCofficial’s mom has an eye for exploiting her 8 year old daughter’s age and appearance. Nice job, Ava Martinez. #MINIAOC bookings? pic.twitter.com/xSxOtKyRze
