Ocasio-Cortez Unloads On Fox Hosts For Not Saying Her Full Name. There’s Just One Problem.

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.”

“Even if they‘re trying to be rude + wrong, my dad’s last name was Ocasio anyway,” she added.

“For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents’ names,” she explained in another post. “It’s not a ‘progressive, new thing.’ It’s just how some names work. PR hyphenates, others mark differently. Your last name = the families that came together to make you.”

“AOC is also fine though :)” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez appears to be spreading false information about the Fox hosts. Grabien Media founder Tom Elliott looked into the claim and found that over the last month Ingraham and Hannity have not once referred to the freshman congresswoman as “Cortez” on their shows.

“You may be unsurprised to learn that this is untrue. I checked every mention of ‘Cortez’ on the Ingraham Angle in March and didn’t find [The Ingraham Angle] referring to [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] as ‘Cortez’ once. On 3/14, Rabbi Aryeh Spero said ‘Cortez and her quartet,’ but Laura never did,” he responded to the rep. in a Wednesday tweet.

“Just checked [Sean Hannity], whom she also accuses of this ostensible hate crime. Like Laura, Hannity did not refer to [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] as ‘Cortez’ once in the month of March (I checked every show). She’s mentioned 20x in one episode, but every time correctly,” Elliott continued.

“Unless [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] has something to back up this claim, it would seem she owes apologies to Hannity and Ingraham,” Elliott noted. “Randomly accusing people of prejudice is indecent, esp. when it will inevitably be used for more boycott fodder.”

And it appears Carlson doesn’t refer to the New York representative as “Cortez,” either. When the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host did a five-minute-plus segment on the democratic socialist Tuesday night, for example, he mentioned her name over a dozen times; he referred to her as “Ocasio-Cortez,” “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” “Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” and “AOC” (which is Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter handle). He did not once refer to her as “Cortez.”

    Cortez is so full of herself. She probably ran out of press appointments and needed to turn the spotlight back to her.

      Natalie correctly points out that AOC “is so full of herself.” Not only that, but she is also full of s*@t.

      Actually her name is Ocasio, Cortez is her mother’s name, regardless, you are right, she lives in America not Spain or Mexico or anywhere in S. America. She is nuttier than a fruitcake and loves to scream about EVERYTHING! The only one making an issue about her name is her!

    Just goes to show you she doesn’t have a clue what is going on, and certainly doesn’t keep up with the news. I’ve never heard any commentator refer to her as simply Cortez. And tell me how using only Cortez would point to her as being Hispanic, since BOTH names are definitely Hispanic.

    How childish of her to suggest that certain people leave out the “Ocasio” part of her name because it sounds less Hispanic and they want to highlight the fact that she is Hispanic ! If anything, I notice that most new media people go out of their way to pronounce Spanish names PERFECTLY,l even pronouncing them with a Spanish accent, while murdering German, Polish and Asian names and not making any attempt to pronounce them correctly.

    It may be the custom to use both parent’s surnames in Hispanic nations, but it is NOT the custom in USA. So this is just another example of SOME Hispanics, like Ocasio-Cortez, who refuse to assimilate. I have many Hispanic friends who do NOT follow that hyphenated surname format.

    Most people on Fox refer to her as AOC as her full name is time-consuming and a mouthful. She still remains totally stupid and ignorant and stupidity cannot be fixed.

    This woman must really think she is the “it” girl! She seems to think everything revolves around her and will do or say anything to keep her name in lights. As several people have said, “she is full of different and various things. I’ll just add my take; she is so full of stupid I can’t imagine there being room for anything else.
