The 8-year-old girl who went viral online for her depictions of Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will no longer be posting videos or any other media, the family announced citing harassment and numerous death threats.
The girl, who was dubbed the name “Mini AOC,” has deleted her account.
“If you’re unfamiliar with ‘Mini AOC,’ she’s the alter ego of a little girl named Ava Martinez who has starred in a series of viral videos mocking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This morning came news that she is reportedly finished with her videos and all accounts associated with her have been deleted,” Twitchy reports.
On Twitter, the family said, “the Left’s harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family.”
“We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers,” the tweet continued. “For our safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts.”
In another tweet, the family thanked her supporters and asked that people donate to St. Jude’s hospital “in lieu of donations for her education.”
