An 8-year-old girl known as "Mini AOC" has been forced to stop producing content impersonating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) after she and her family allegedly became overwhelmed by harassment and death threats from the congresswoman's supporters.
What are the details?
Ava Martinez shot to internet fame with a series of parodies poking fun at the democratic socialist firebrand, but the videos were apparently too much to bear for some liberal activists who attacked the girl with a torrent of online abuse.
A Twitter account purportedly run by a parent of Martinez posted Friday, "Ava will not being [sic] 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 numbers. For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts."

The Instagram account for Mini AOC had been pulled down as of this writing, and all content from the purported parent's account had been deleted with the exception of the message notifying its 90,000 followers that the harassment had become too much.
OANN's Jack Posobiec reported that the official Twitter account for Mini AOC had also been removed from the platform.
