On Tuesday night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed that people are avoiding eating at Chinese and Asian restaurants due to “racism around the coronavirus.” The congresswoman made the suggestion while speaking to her supporters on Instagram Live.

“Honestly it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism,” Ocasio-Cortez told her viewers. “Where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants. They’re not patroning Asian restaurants, because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus.”

On Saturday however, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez changed her tune and urged the public to “stop crowding bars and restaurants”.

She tweeted: “To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now. Eat your meals at home.”

“If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID,” the New York congresswoman claimed.

“What does ‘crowded’ mean?” she then asked and proceeded to explain. “If you can’t stay 6ft away from other people, it’s too close. In general, when going outside try to stay at least 6 feet away from others as much as you possibly can.” (Continued Below)
