A Twitter account with the name “zaza demon” responded to Matt Walsh, a prominent conservative, and told him they “can’t wait until you piss off a trans person that actually is as unhinged as you claim to say they all are” then went on to say “can’t be a bigot if you’re no longer breathing.” This wouldn’t be news if it weren’t for the allegations that this account belongs to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. representative for New York’s 14th congressional district.
Twitter user @realnikohouse responded to a tweet from AOC’s official Twitter account in response to a post she made about NYC’s and her tolerance for bigots and transphobes. In direct response to Niko’s tweet, zaza demon wrote, “Lol and what makes you think that i did anything to support nazis? You’re delusional. Seek help.”
Niko posted a video on his TikTok where he supports his argument for why this account actually belongs to AOC. He states how the zaza demon account responded twice to his comment. After he began to connect the dots, he went back to the tweet and confirmed it had been deleted. When Niko posted his evidence for her ownership of the account, he found out the account had blocked him. Once Niko’s tweet began to go viral, the owner of zaza demon deleted the account.
Now the question is whether or not this account actually belongs to AOC, and if so, did a sitting Member of Congress make a threat to a prominent conservative media personality? The evidence looks fairly convincing that AOC accidentally replied to this tweet while still logged into an alternate account, though it would be unprovable unless the same device or IP address belonging to AOC’s official account could be matched up to this burner account. Twitter would have to release that information, and unless a crime were to have been committed, it’s very unlikely that will happen.
