Moment AOC confronts troll harassing her on the steps of the Capitol branding her his ‘favorite big booty Latina’: Rep says she wanted to ‘deck’ him for spewing ‘disgusting garbage’ while officers stood idly by
- AOC, 32, was sexually harassed on the steps of the Capitol by a notorious troll
- She reposted the clip of Alex Stein, 35, calling her his ‘favorite big booty Latina’
- She wrote that she wanted to ‘deck’ the provocateur but thought better of it
- Instead she flashed the peace sign and posed for an ironic selfie with the troll
Notorious instigator Alex Stein, 35, was waiting at the steps of the Capitol building on Wednesday to film the Democrat Representative from New York, catcalling her and remarking that she ‘wanted to kill babies but she’s still beautiful.’
The congresswoman was approaching the steps with an aide as police stood by during the exchange.
‘I love you, AOC, you’re my favorite!’ he called. ‘You look very beautiful in that dress.’
He caught the 32-year-old’s attention when he made a lewd comment about her body and she changed course to approach him.
The aide physically placed a hand on her chest to hold her back from doing something unwise.
Instead, Ocasio-Cortez ironically posed for a selfie and flashed the peace sign and walked on up the steps.

‘Look how sexy she looks in that dress,’ Stein yells again as she reaches the top of the steps. ‘Whooo. I love it AOC. Hot hot hot like a tamale.’
‘I was actually walking over to deck him because if no one will protect us then I’ll do it myself,’ Ocasio-Cortez wrote of the incident on Twitter later, ‘but I needed to catch a vote more than a case today.’
The congresswoman first tweeted about the incident ‘deeply disgusting incident’ when she posted a picture of his face and slammed him for spewing ‘disgusting garbage in front of an officer who let him continue.’
But she then deleted the tweet, unwilling to provide a man who was ‘seeking extremist fame’ the attention.
‘It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more,’ she added. ‘Just really sad.’

Instead she re-posted Stein’s video of the incident.
When reached for comment, Stein told Business Insider he would ‘love to date’ Ocasio-Cortez and thought she was ‘absolutely beautiful.’
When asked about the lawmaker’s remark on finding the incident ‘deeply disgusting,’ Stein responded that he is ‘actually very hygienic.’
Alex Stein is a social media personality, rapper and far-right activist notorious for provoking outrageous situations for online content.
He achieved some level of fame for himself by rapping about ‘putting a bullet in Putin’s brain’ during a Texas city council meeting in March.
Ocasio-Cortez was not the only politician Stein harassed on the Capitol steps on Wednesday. He posted a video of himself calling Rep. Adam Kinzinger a ‘fake RINO Republican’ and a ‘scumbag’ among other insults.
He was also involved in a confrontation with Rep. Dan Crenshaw at a GOP convention in Texas in June, calling him a ‘globalist RINO’ and ‘eyepatch McCain’.
‘This is what happens when angry little boys like [Alex Stein] don’t grow up and can’t get girlfriends…,’ the congressman tweeted in reply.
