Efforts by an anonymous Twitter user by sharing a video of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing with the aim of publicly embarrassing her has turned around. And instead she is getting accolade of outpouring support from all all social media
The 30-second clip was tweeted on Thursday by an account named @AnonymousQ1776.

The video was filmed when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was still a student at Bosto University. It was taken from a longer video where Ms Ocasio-Cortez and other students performed a dance from The Breakfast Club to the song Lisztomania by Phoenix.

The video was one of a number of "Brat Pack Mash Ups" that swept the internet in 2010, the year before the politician graduated from university.

However the anonymous Twitter user shared it online and tried to shame Ms Ocasio-Cortez.

The poster @AnonymousQ1776 captioned the video:

Here is America’s favourite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is.

 To the shame of the poster, social media users were quick to defend  Ms Ocasio-Cortez's and even went ahead to praising her.
The account used to tweet the video was later deleted, after the derisive tweet attracted thousands of replies defending Ms Ocasio-Cortez and mocking the attempt to discredit her.

Ms Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman to ever be elected to the US Congress. The Democratic politician, who is from New York, was sworn in to Congress on Thursday.
