Ava Martinez, known as “Mini AOC,” who went viral for impersonating Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, will no longer make videos due to death threats and harassment she and her family have received from the left.
The 8-year-old child actor brought joy to her fans with several videos poking fun at the socialist democrat, gaining millions of views on social media.
However, that all stopped on Wednesday when Martinez’s family announced that Ava would no longer be impersonating Ocasio-Cortez and that all the videos created would be removed.
“The Left’s Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family. We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers,” Martinez’s stepfather Salvatore Schachter tweeted. “For our safety and for our child’s safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts.”
Martinez’s stepfather Salvatore Schachter old Fox News that while the feedback from “Mini AOC” was overwhelmingly positive, the negativity “became too much” after she reenacted photographs the congresswoman had taken at the southern border last year, adding that the comments were “increasingly personal, dark, and dangerous.”
“She’s disappointed at not doing Mini AOC going forward but we explained that this is for the best and she’s okay with it,” Schachter said.
Ava’s family had one message for those on the left who harassed her and her family.
“The world has seen Ava’s beauty, talent, and charm, which was the whole reason for Mini AOC to begin with and no amount of hate or anger will change that,” Schachter told Fox News. “Also, like Ava says, ‘try using your words.'”
