The decade's most triggering comedy
Elon Musk mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday using her past words against her after she appeared to take a shot at him on social media without directly using his name.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “Tired of having to collectively stress about what explosion of hate crimes is happening bc some billionaire with an ego problem unilaterally controls a massive communication platform and skews it because Tucker Carlson or Peter Thiel took him to dinner and made him feel special.”
Musk responded, “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy.”

AOC’s rant against billionaires continued on Twitter with her writing: “Billionaires be like ‘the extreme far left is taking over’ when the ‘extreme far left’ in the US is ‘medicine shouldn’t bankrupt you,’ ‘wages should cover rent,’ & ‘maybe it’s bad that Wall St companies profit off mass surveillance, manufactured housing crises, and caging people.'”
“The number of billionaires in the US couldn’t even fill an apartment building, but the number of people they negatively impact is only growing,” she added. “All the US billionaire votes combined couldn’t even come in 2nd for an NY city council election. That’s why they stay pressed.”
Musk’s response is a reference to a news story from late last year where Ocasio-Cortez lashed out at critics online after she was caught hanging out in Florida without a mask on.
National Review reported that, according to photographs obtained by the publication, Ocasio-Cortez was “seated outside Doraku Sushi and Izakaya in Miami Beach Thursday afternoon, raising a cocktail in one hand and checking her phone in another.”
“If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet,” Ocasio-Cortez responded to one of the critics calling her out. “Ya creepy weirdos.”
“It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general,” AOC continued. “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”
