‘I was wrong’: AOC chickens out unblocks Twitter User and apologizes

Guess AOC didn’t want to take the stand in the lawsuit Dov Hikind filed against her for blocking him on Twitter.

The Daily News is already covering this hot tip.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday settled a lawsuit accusing her of violating the Constitution by blocking former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind on Twitter, saying her heat of the moment social media decision was “wrong and improper.”

Ocasio-Cortez, who was due to testify in Brooklyn federal court Tuesday as part of the high-profile lawsuit, issued a statement saying she had “reconsidered” the Twitter block.

“Mr. Hikind has a First Amendment right to express his views and should not be blocked for them,” the Queens-Bronx congresswoman said. “In retrospect, it was wrong and improper and does not reflect the values I cherish. I sincerely apologize for blocking Mr. Hikind.”

The settlement means Ocasio-Cortez won’t have to take the stand Tuesday.
