Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) posted a video of an interaction she had with a heckler, saying she was “actually walking over to deck him.”
“I posted about a deeply disgusting incident that happened today on the Capitol steps, but took it down bc it’s clearly someone seeking extremist fame,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
She added, “It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad.”
Ocasio-Cortez then posted the video.
“I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today,” she continued.

The New York Post noted the video was originally posted by Right-wing instigator Alex Stein.
In the video, Stein has the camera facing him as Ocasio-Cortez walks in his direction.
“AOC my favorite big booty latina. I love you AOC you’re my favorite,” Stein said.
He continued, “She wants to kill babies but she’s still beautiful. You look very beautiful in that dress. You look very sexy. Look at that booty on AOC.”
AOC begins to approach him as an aide holds an arm out to hold her back.
The congresswoman proceeds to sarcastically pose for a selfie with him and walk up the steps.
“Look how sexy she looks in that dress,” Stein shouted. “Whooo. I love it AOC. Hot hot hot like a tamale.”
Her post garnered a lot of reaction from Twitter users.

Congresswoman, I am deeply sorry for this man's behavior. Nobody should call you a "big booty Latina." The correct phrase is "big booty Latinx." https://t.co/W6BTbsT1OE

This is not the first time Stein has confronted a lawmaker.
Stein and others began shouting “eyepatch McCain” at Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) during a GOP convention.
Crenshaw fired back at Stein on Twitter, saying, “This is what happens when angry little boys like [Alex Stein] don’t grow up and can’t get girlfriends…”
