US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez nearly broke the Internet on Tuesday night as she live-streamed the hit video game 'Among Us' on Twitch. A rising star of the Democratic Party, AOC, as she is often referred to, played 'Among Us' with fellow Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar and YouTube personalities like Pokimane, Jack Septic Eye and Hasanabi, reports the Huffington Post.
The 31-year-old Congresswoman live-streamed the game to encourage young Americans to vote in the upcoming election.
She announced that she would be playing the game in a tweet on Monday night, writing: "Anyone want to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote?" She also added that she had never played "but it looks like a lot of fun."
For someone who has never played the game before, Ms Ocasio-Cortez sure killed it... quite literally. She was assigned the role of an imposter - whose job in the viral video game is to go around killing crewmates.
According to a Forbes report, about 7 lakh people tuned in to Twitch to watch AOC play 'Among Us'.
Twitter, too, was flooded with posts about the game, for which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chose a pink skin with a plant hat.
