Over the past few days the internet seems to have become obsessed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, a web developer called Riley Roberts. Ocasio-Cortez is pretty quiet about her private life but Roberts makes an appearance in Knock Down the House, the new Netflix documentary about four women who ran in the 2018 midterm elections. And, though brief, his appearance generated rather heated discussion.

“THIS is what AOC’s boyfriend looks like?” one writer tweeted. “[I]ncredible scenes, truly representing all the ambitious and stunning millennial women shackled to boyfriends who look like bin raccoons out there.” The internet immediately rushed to the (actually very handsome) guy’s defense, and the tweet was later deleted. It didn’t escape Ocasio-Cortez’s attention, however, and the couple seem to have taken the raccoon comparisons with good humour. On Sunday AOC posted an Instagram clip of Roberts showing off a new haircut, with the caption: “The Internet roasted Riley into getting a haircut/glowup after #KnockDownTheHouse.”
