AOC is finally learning she can’t simply violate someone’s constitutional rights.
AOC who was facing a federal lawsuit for blocking an assemblyman from Twitter issued an apology.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has settled a lawsuit with former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind — sparing her from having to testify in federal court Tuesday over why she blocked him on Twitter, The Post has learned.
“I have reconsidered my decision to block Dov Hikind from my Twitter account,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a statement obtained by The Post on Monday. “Mr. Hikind has a First Amendment right to express his views and should not be blocked for them.”
As part of a settlement deal reached, Ocasio-Cortez issued an apology.
“In retrospect, it was wrong and improper and does not reflect the values I cherish. I sincerely apologize for blocking Mr. Hikind,” her statement said. “Now and in the future, however, I reserve the right to block users who engage in actual harassment or exploit my personal/campaign account, @AOC, for commercial or other improper purposes.”
