Republicans and ABC slammed for airing ad showing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez photo on fire.

A super PAC run by a former Republican House candidate ran an ad during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate in which a photograph of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was burned.

Watch:

The 30-second ad, from a Republican-affiliated PAC ‘New Faces GOP’ features its founder Elizabeth Heng ‘warning’ about liberal politicians who embrace socialism.

The ad was quickly condemned on social media, and drew a response from Ocasio-Cortez.

Many also criticized ABC for airing the ad.

Responding to an additional tweet by Ocasio-Cortez, Heng continued to add fuel to the controversy, attracting 1400 comments largely condemning her ad.
