A conservative advocacy organization ratcheted up its feud with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday over Amazon’s decision to back out of its planned second headquarters in New York.

The two new Times Square billboards funded by the Job Creators Network (JCN) are in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet slamming its first billboard criticizing her involvement in Amazon’s decision.

‘Hey AOC, Saw your wack tweet,’ reads the higher of the two billboards located on 7th Avenue and 42nd Street.

A longer billboard with the heading ‘AMAZON PULLOUT’ below expands on the issues the JCN has with the congresswoman from Queens.

‘Hey AOC, this billboard cost about $4,000. But you cost NY 25,000 jobs and $4,000,000,000 in annual lost wages. Ouch!’

JCN writes in a press release that the billboards were meant to ‘poke fun at the tweet’ by Ocasio-Cortez that she had made in response to its original billboard on Wednesday.

‘Few things effectively communicate the power we’ve built in fighting dark money & anti-worker policies like billionaire-funded groups blowing tons of cash on wack billboards (this one is funded by the Mercers),’ the congresswoman tweeted then. ‘(PS fact that it’s in Times Sq tells you this isn’t for/by NYers).’

She further went on to say: ‘Billionaires paying to put up anti-progressive propaganda in Times Square is like the obscenely rich version of the scene where Michael Scott points to the Bubba Gump and saying ”This is it, this is the heart of civilization, right here”.’
