Foster Friess speaks onstage during Celebrity Fight Night XVI

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is defending herself against accusations that she used a "Southern drawl" during a speech on Friday before a mostly black audience.

Regardless, the hits kept coming from critics who saw her sudden speech pattern change as disingenuous.

Critics and social media users accused her of slipping into a freakish accent, with some even comparing her to none other than Hillary Clinton, who was also once accused of imitating a southern twang.

"I'm proud to be a bartender, ain't nothin wrong with that", Ocasio-Cortez continued. "Their talents get stifled by "respectability", despite enormous gifts". Now people of color are pissed at her for her "shuck and jive" routine at the National Action Network convention on Friday.

"Folks talking about my voice can step right off", Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

It was also just the second ace at AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio in this event, the last one happened in 2013. Tony Finau was close to missing the cut, but finished with two consecutive birdies to stop an early exit.

While claiming that it was a Bronx thing, rather than an accent, she said that's how she talks and acts all the time. "It is so hurtful to see how every aspect of my life is weaponized against me, yet somehow asserted as false at the same time", she added.

And before AOC fires back about the "GOP" demeaning bartending, that's now what's happening here.

Speaking at the Republican Jewish Coalition's annual leadership conference on Saturday, Trump again mocked her experience in the service industry.

"Tucker Carlson has been criticised by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after lamenting the fact feminists "do science" in America".

"Green New Deal! Proposed by a wonderful young bartender-29 years old", he said, referring to Ocasio Cortez.
