Nine-year-old Ava Martinez, the girl behind the highly popular Mini AOC Twitter parody account based on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has deleted her social media accounts after her family were reportedly doxed and sent death threats from supporters of Ocasio-Cortez.
One America News host Jack Posobiec broke the news on Twitter.
He added that her family said she will not be producing any further Mini AOC content due to these threats.
An account that reportedly belongs to Martinez’ stepfather, Salvatore Schachter, also released a statement on the matter confirming Posobiec’s reporting and saying that there will be no more Mini AOC content because of safety concerns.
Martinez’s hilarious AOC impressions had turned Mini AOC into one of the most popular political parody accounts in recent months and her Twitter account had over 81,000 followers when it was deleted.
Martinez posted her first Mini AOC video in April which perfectly parodied AOC’s look, mannerisms, and style. Following the success of the original Mini AOC video, she started a Twitter account in May and continued to produce a number of popular AOC parodies. Mini AOC’s final parody, which was posted just a few days before the account was deleted, made fun of the infamous photos of AOC visiting a migrant detention center at the US-Mexico border.
After the Mini AOC account was deleted, a Twitter user called Kyle claimed the @miniAOCofficial handle, and put the following statement in the account bio:
“Reserving this handle to prevent a leftist takeover. I have zero affiliation with the original and hilarious miniAOC. I will return it upon request. OSU CE grad”
