On Sunday, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) triggered outrage by tweeting out an anime-themed video depicting himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and swinging a pair of swords at President Joe Biden.

The stunt earned furious condemnation from Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA).

"This is sick behavior from Rep. Paul Gosar," said Lieu, a former Air Force Reserve officer. "He tweeted out the video showing him killing Rep. Ocasio-Cortez from both his official account and personal account. In any workplace in America, if a coworker made an anime video killing another coworker, that person would be fired."

Gosar also drew outrage from former Republican National Committee official Doug Heye, who tweeted, "This deserves an overwhelmingly bipartisan censure."

An extreme-right lawmaker who has been condemned by his own family members, Gosar has been accused of associating with white supremacists. He has repeatedly used his account to spread far-right internet memes, including from a "men's right's activist" who has said men should stand up straight to project dominance over women.
