'Mini AOC' Accounts Deleted After 8-Year-Old Child-Actor Receives Death Threats

Eight-year-old Ava Martinez's videos mocking Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez have received millions of views online.

The family of an eight-year-old girl whose video impersonations of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went viral said they have deleted her social media accounts due to harassment and death threats.

Ava Martinez, known as “Mini AOC,” quickly rose to fame after she was featured in multiple videos that mocked Ocasio-Cortez, FOX News reported.

In early July, Ava appeared in several photo tweets while standing outside a park fence while appearing to cry.

"Every time I plan a visit to the park it's closed," the caption read, according to Newsweek. “Can everyone see how sad this makes me?”

The photo mimicked images of an upset Ocasio-Cortez standing outside the Tornillo “tent city” detention center fence in Texas, which critics later claimed was a staged “photo op,” Newsweek reported.

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the moment when the photos were taken was “the moment I saw with my own eyes that the America I love was becoming a nation that steals refugee children from their parents & caged them,” according to Newsweek.

After Ava’s parody photos were posted on Twitter, the family said they began receiving death threats, and ultimately decided to remove Ava from the limelight, FOX News reported.

“Ava will not [be] doing any more MINI AOC content,” her stepfather, Savatore Schachter, tweeted on July 3. “The Left's Harassment and death threats have gone too far for our family. We have been getting calls on our personal phone numbers.”

“For our safety and for our child's safety, we deleted all Mini AOC accounts,” Schachter added.

He said that a bulk of the feedback they received prior to the photos outside the playground was very positive, but that critics have increasingly been making comments that are “personal, dark, and dangerous,” FOX News reported.

“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," he added. "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.”

"Also, like Ava says, 'try using your words,’” Schachter suggested.

The “tolerant left”. Too bad, that little girl was funny as heck.

What the real AOC should do now is condemn the attacks on this little girl and her family. But she won't. Leftists will happily watch weeks and weeks and weeks of Alec Baldwin doing a Trump impression but they will not tolerate ANY form of criticism of their 'Dear Leaders'. All hail the Democratic People's Republic of America!

The left have quickly become the brown shirts of America. I'm glad my grandfathers aren't around to see the Nazism they fought against now on US soil.

The left is full of hatred when anyone has different views. They should be ashamed but are too stupid to figure that out. I wish Ava Martinez would keep on dishing out the dirt but understand how an 8 year old could be intimidated. @AOC is a PIG and needs to go back to bartending!

The left is an evil in society that needs to be removed.

Ironic since AOC and the left in general profess to be passionate about children's welfare. Anyway, it only takes an ounce of common sense to grasp that the child is just echoing the political views of her parents. Unless she is extraordinarily precocious I assume she's not writing her own political satire at this age.

I wonder how many of those death threats came from AOC herself?

This story has nothing to do with with Blue Lives Mattering. Also, Child Protective Services ought to take the child -- completely inappropriate parenting here.

Funny, the liberals don't mind mocking us, but they lose it when someone has the guts to mock any liberal.

Time for the Entire Family to become Firearms owners and accomplished shooters. Maybe get an opportunity to defuse a Death Threat with a fast moving response.

AOC fake crying like she cares, it's only a stunt. She claims she is upset how the kids are being treated. But when her cult followers threatened a 8 yr old AMERICAN KID she is SILENT and doesn't come to the aid of an AMERICAN GIRL . Telling her cult to STOP harassing the girl and family.so it proves to me the little 8 yr old nailed it with those pictures

Trump is right. AOC , Ohmar and the rest of them do hate America.. The left thinks that because they have big mouths and willing lackeys in the press that people believe them. They will be proven wrong again in 2020, then watch the epic meltdown

I hope the family has turned everything over to the police to file charges against the harassers. They are scum and should be prosecuted for making death threats to an 8 year old.

Stay safe little Ava. Too many crazies who are "left handed".

Probably best if an eight-year-old girl isn't subjected to being a tool by her parents anyhow. I seriously doubt she has a clue about politics or what she was in fact mocking.
