By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as “Cortez,” which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them.
My last name is not “Cortez,” just as theirs isn’t “Ingra” or “Carl” or “Hann.”

Whiny brat. None of the people whose name she fractures ever called her that.
Via Daily Wire:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed that Fox News hosts, such as Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson, refer to her as simply “Cortez,” instead of her full last name, “Ocasio-Cortez.” Although there is no evidence to prove they have ever referred to her as “Cortez,” the NY representative slammed Fox and accused those who drop the “Ocasio” of having racial malice.
“Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as ‘Cortez,’ which I can only imagine is bc that sounds more ‘stereotypically’ Hispanic + probably incites more ‘anxiety’ for them,” she claimed in a Wednesday tweet.
“Pro Tip: My last name is not ‘Cortez,’ just as theirs isn’t ‘Ingra’ or ‘Carl’ or ‘Hann,’” she added, referencing Ingraham, Carlson, and Hannity.
Her complaint continued: “My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That’s my name. No, you can’t say ‘Cortez.’ I’ve never used that in my life. ‘Cortez’ is referring to someone else.”
