Gosar shared an edited video of the opening sequence for the Japanese anime Attack on Titan, featuring him and other far-right members of Congress killing firebrand progressive Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and President Joe Biden.
The video was soon slapped with a disclaimer for violating Twitter's rules of conduct. Nevertheless, Gosar praised his team for compiling it.
Ocasio-Cortez, who is currently on a congressional climate delegation to Scotland, eventually caught wind of the video.
The Congresswoman lambasted Gosar as well as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California for continually allowing Republican members of Congress to harass, belittle, and intimidate members like her.
Ocasio-Cortez, known colloquially as "AOC," deemed Gosar's post as one instance of a repeated pattern of harassment allowed by the GOP Minority Leader. She pointed to Representative Ted Yoho's outburst last year, when he called her a "f***ing bitch" in front of reporters, as well as far-right conspiracy theorist Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia repeatedly accosting her on the House floor.
She noted that institutions like the House of Representatives are severely inadequate at protecting women of color and that she expected to go "back to business" despite facing violent fantasies from her coworkers.
People expressed support for the Congresswoman.
They're demanding Gosar face consequences.
Gosar has yet to respond.
