- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a House Financial Services Committee hearing last Thursday
- A photo taken at the hearing has now become viral, with social media users claiming that AOC is an & # 39; Italian hand gesture & # 39; in the image
- The hashtag #ItalianAOC started on Twitter, with users sharing the image, accompanied by stereotypical Italian quotes and sentences
A photo of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grilling Mark Zuckerberg during a recent congressional session goes viral on social media, with users claiming that the fire brigade politician is an & # 39; Italian & # 39; hand gesture in the image.
The snap, in which the 30-year-old raises her hands in the air and rubs her fingers together, has sparked the hashtag #ItalianAOC.
Twitter users share the photo with accompanying quotes made famous by fictional Italian-American characters.
& # 39; Leave the gun, get the cannoli, & # 39; read a popular tweet, referring to the phrase Peter Clemenza uttered in The Godfather.
Another user humorously repeated the famous quote from Don Vito Corleone from the same film and wrote above the image: & # 39; I will make him a Green New Deal that he cannot refuse & # 39 ;.

A third meme photo shoppered the words & # 39; The Congresswoman & # 39; across the top of the photo with the same front of the movie poster from The Godfather.
Meanwhile, another message referred to The Sopranos, with a quote that reads: & # 39; For the last time, it's Gaba Gool, not Capicola! & # 39;
Elsewhere on Twitter, other users invented their own humorous lines that they thought AOC blended into an Italian accent.
& # 39; My mother. She makes manicotti. She makes it al dente with a ricotta cheese, & someone wrote.
& # 39; If the meat-a-ball is just spicy enough, & # 39; read another tweet, making it look like AOC was happily rubbing her fingers.
However, one person interpreted the image as if the Bronx-born politician was in a rather bad mood.
They claimed that AOC's facial expression reminded them of their Italian mother who said angrily: & # 39; After all I've done for you, is this how you repay me? & # 39;
AOC is known as active on Twitter, but the congresswoman – who has no Italian heritage – has not yet discussed the humorous memes.
