Laura Ingraham attempted to make fun of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Twitter for her grammar, but it didn’t end well for the Fox News personality.

The exchange culminated with Ocasio-Cortez calling the widely watched conservative network’s prime-time host, who has a history of peddling white nationalist talking points on her show, “a neo-Nazi fan favorite.”

It began when Ocasio-Cortez explained why she blocks some accounts on Twitter:

1. I have 5.2 million followers. Less than 20 accounts are blocked for ongoing harassment. 0 are my constituents.2. Harassment is not a viewpoint. Some accounts, like the Daily Caller, posted fake nude photos of me & abused my comments to spread it. No one is entitled to abuse. https://t.co/0QWKqJFzRe

People are free to speak whatever classist, racist, false, misogynistic, bigoted comments they’d like.They do not have the right to force others to endure their harassment and abuse. ✌🏽

Ingraham fired back with a grammatical correction:

“Fewer” than 20 accounts…. https://t.co/5jmxfq2CPQ

Ocasio-Cortez explained in reply how Ingraham had proved her point.

“See?” she wrote. “You’re a neo-Nazi fan favorite and I don’t block you for defending white supremacist viewpoints and mocking gun violence survivors.”

Ingraham sparked widespread anger and lost advertisers in 2018 after she mocked David Hogg, a teenage survivor of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. She also has a long past of demonizing immigrants, as this March supercut from progressive watchdog group Media Matters shows:
