New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez abandoned her fans on Sunday who had been waiting to see her give another speech.

But she was on hand earlier in the day at the South By Southwest conference to see her own documentary premiere, The Daily Mail reported.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cancelled her final South by Southwest appearance on Sunday as she is ‘under the weather’ after event organizers moved it to a bigger room and she attended a red carpet premiere earlier in the day.

The freshman Democrat from New York was scheduled to tape an episode of the Skullduggery podcast as her final appearance at the technology and film festival.

Organizers had moved the taping to a larger venue, likely after her Saturday evening event was filled to the gills and the overflow rooms overflowed with attendees eager to see the rising Democratic star.

“We were extremely excited to join Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman in a conversation about big tech and antitrust,” a statement from her office said.

“Unfortunately Representative Ocasio-Cortez is under the weather and unable to attend the Skullduggery podcast,” it said.

“We are looking forward to continuing this very important conversation in the future,” the statement said.

Is she afraid of tough questions?

“We’re sorry @AOC is not feeling well. We are very much looking forward to rescheduling this important conversation with @SkullduggeryPod soon,” Klaidman said.

Interesting. She was fine to attend a movie to celebrate herself but to give back to her fans, that she could not do.

And therein lies the issue. It is a podcast with someone from Yahoo News who could ask her actual questions and not fawn over her like a teenager.
