The funny parody account that mocked Vice President Kamala Harris and the now-dormant one that mocked Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has returned to Twitter under new handles.
The Vice president of the United States, Kamala Harris, already has an image issue, so this is bad news.
The parody Twitter account @AOCpressTwo has recently gone online and has been highly active in mocking the socialist New York legislator. Tweets like “I’m back – you mad, bro?” are featured prominently on the profile page.
The account sarcastically explained that they had to start over since their former 400k fans were all bigots, white supremacists, xenophobes, homophobes, and domestic terrorists.
The return to Twitter was announced by the notorious user Catturd, who said people might recall that he contributed several parody tweets to the @AOCpress account, but he wasn’t the account’s owner or manager. He said if you listen to his podcast, he’d explain what occurred and how he intends to get the account back up and running.
Ocasio-Cortez has been frustrated by the proliferation of popularity of the new account.
The AOC parody tweeter made notable comments like:
-cows farting are deadlier than fentanyl.
-DeSantis is not her type.
The New York representative was pretty angry, alerting her followers that strange tweets were from a parody account, not her, and her team and her lawyers were assessing how to move forward.
AOC was also peeved that Elon Musk seemingly helped boost the parody account’s visibility (something she did as well by drawing additional attention.)
Despite backlash from the left and rumored death threats, both accounts are poised for explosive growth now that Twitter is once again a safe sanctuary for political parodies and viewpoints.
While this is happening, fact-checkers are busily disproving the spoof accounts’ claims that some remarks are indeed those of Ocasio-Cortez or Harris.
