Many know by now that crossing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn't always the best idea and that the very least that can happen is that she will blast you on Twitter.

This is exactly what occurred when Ocasio-Cortez came after Whitehouse counsellor Kellyanne Conway, who accused her of "never once tweeting about Sri Lanka".

Speaking to CNN host Jake Tapper, Conway was defending President Trump's previous comment on how there were "very fine people on both sides", when she quickly changed the topic to the New York Democrat, remarking:

I see officials who get a lot of airtime and ink, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, congresswoman, who tweets many times about the mosque but never once about Sri Lanka​.

This was a reference to the New Zealand attack which caused the death of 49 Muslims last month and also to the several explosions that took the lives of almost 300 Christians in Sri Lanka.

She later went on Twitter to clarify what she said, saying that she was "referring to @AOC silence about the Sri Lanka massacre of Christians (not "Easter Worshippers" as Obama and Hillary oddly said). Try listening before spewing".

This comment seemingly didn't rub off well on Ocasio-Cortez, who immediately fired back, slamming Conway for questioning her faith.

She also totally took apart Conway's tweet, correcting her on word usage and calling her out for ignoring Trump's response to Hurricane Maria

Her words must have had an impact because several hours later Conway responded to the tweet, saying that she agrees with the Democrat that "people of all faiths should be free from harm".
