"FYI there's a fake account on here impersonating me and going viral."

Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is not too thrilled about an obvious parody account of her going viral on Twitter and said on Tuesday that she was working with her team to figure out steps on how to move forward.

AOC wrote about the "issue" in a Twitter post, insinuating that her followers wouldn't be able to determine on their own accord that the parody impersonation account titled, "Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez Press Release (parody)" is in fact, a parody.

"FYI there's a fake account on here impersonating me and going viral. The Twitter CEO has engaged it, boosting visibility. It is releasing false policy statements and gaining spread," AOC wrote on Twitter. "I am assessing with my team how to move forward. In the meantime, be careful of what you see."

The parody account with the username @AOCpress has garnered more than 100,000 followers and is dedicated to posting humorous content that pokes fun at the Democrat New York congresswoman's progressive policies.

Recent posts from the parody account include: "Feeling cute, might go to the southern border for another photo shoot", "If we tax citizens at a rate of 80%, we'd easily be able to pay 3 trillion dollars in reparations to transgenders", "Farming should be illegal", and "Cow farts are far more dangerous than fentanyl."

The account's humorous content has even captured the attention of Twitter owner Elon Musk, who has a history of repeated banter with AOC on the social media platform due to her frequent critical aims at the tech-billionaire, which the congresswoman claimed that Musk is helping the parody account spread "misinformation" by commenting on its posts which boosts its visibility.

On Sunday, the parody account wrote, "This might be the wine talking, but I’ve got a crush on @elonmusk."

Musk responded to the post with a "fire" emoji.

Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz also frequently promotes the parody account on Twitter, which has triggered the congresswoman further.

The parody account posts content making fun of AOC's notorious response to Senator Cruz when she stated, "I don't want to date you" in response to criticism from the congressman.

Following AOC's announcement that she was working with her team to take action, people across social media "roasted" her for targeting an account that publishes obvious parody.

"It's a parody you dimwit. But the very fact that no one can tell the difference is the funniest part of all of this."

"You know it’s a It’s a parody account right it literally says parody on it"

"It’s also labeled as parody. Which is to say, it complies with the terms of service."

"It’s clearly marked as a parody. I find it concerning that your actual Tweets and positions are so close to parody that it’s sometimes indistinguishable from reality."

The parody account responded to AOC by writing, "I’m still not going to date you."
