Piers Morgan pointed out a curiosity about the difference between the attention Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) paid to terror attacks that targeted Muslims versus that which targeted Christians.

"Twitter-obsessed @AOC posted 14 times about the terror attack on Muslims in New Zealand, but has posted nothing about the terror attack on Christians by Muslim extremists in Sri Lanka," Morgan noted.

"Very odd," he concluded.

He was referring to a series of horrific bombings on the Christian religious day of observance for Easter that killed at least 321 at last count, and injured hundreds more.

But while Ocasio-Cortez showered attention on the terror attacks on Muslims in New Zealand, she showed on such interest in the attacks on Christians.

In one controversial tweet after the New Zealand terror attacks, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to mock those offering prayers for the victims.

"What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don't even keep the pews safe?" she tweeted.

In another tweet, she praised the government in New Zealand for banning guns after the attack.

"This is what leadership looks like," she tweeted.

TheBlaze could not substantiate the claim that Ocasio-Cortez tweeted 14 times about New Zealand, which appears to be repeated often on social media, but without evidence.

Other Democratic politicians have been criticized for their response to the terror on Christians in Sri Lanka, including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who referred to the victims as "Easter worshippers."

On Tuesday, ISIS claimed responsibility for the heinous Easter attacks.

Here's the latest on the Sri Lanka attacks:
