A social media influencer known for supporting progressive lawmakers Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — and urging her followers to “Tax the Rich” — is getting roasted online after showing off her swanky new $2 million apartment.

Nicole Sanchez, known online as Neekolul, became an internet sensation last March with a TikTok video of her dancing to an “OK Boomer” tune while wearing a blue Bernie Sanders T-shirt.

The clip caught the eyes of at least 50 million viewers — and quickly turned the 23-year-old into a social media force.

Sanchez went viral again this March when she recreated the “OK Boomer” dance while wearing a “Tax the Rich” sweatshirt made by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign — which is sold on the congresswoman’s official online store for $58.

“OK Boomer” is an internet slang phrase intended to mock the Baby Boomer generation — those born between 1946 to 1964. It is used as a response to dismiss opinions seen as outdated or narrow-minded.

But Sanchez has now caught the ire of the internet after she shared a video of herself Tuesday giving a tour of her $2 million new digs in Dallas — where the young influencer shows fans her “fancy” wine fridge, a Nespresso machine despite not being a coffee drinker and a kitchen boasting “Martha Stewart vibes.”

She also took viewers on a tour of her “east wing,” a laundry room, a master bedroom with views of the city’s skyline and a large walk-in closet.

“We have a pretty sick view,” a laughing Sanchez said on the clip.

Many viewers were quick to blast her as a hypocrite — pointing out that her newfound wealth doesn’t jive with her support of Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders, who are both known for their progressive agendas.

“I thought you were a Bernie supporter?” one critic charged. “Tax the rich, distribute the wealth? Everyone lives equally?”

“They’re always socialist until it’s their money and not someone else’s,” another comment read.

Some also noted that the apparent online flex wasn’t the only time Sanchez appeared to flaunt her wealth, noting a photo she posted in late May showed her splaying atop a pricy BMW.

“[It’s] still eat the rich tho right?” another critic tweeted.

“Must be nice profiting off of capitalism that you fought so hard against,” read another tweet.

“Brought to you by capitalism,” a frustrated fan fumed.

Still, there are some fans who are staying floral to Sanchez — arguing that she can spend her money as she pleases.

“What’s the difference between her getting an apartment or me going out to buy a house with money I earned?” one post read.

Meanwhile, Sanchez posted a video in late March denying reports that her net worth is between $1 and $5 million.

She also argued that she was referencing “billionaires” when calling for higher taxes on wealthy Americans.

“I think when people mean like tax the rich, I think at the end of the day they do mean like billionaires and people that have insane, unfathomable amounts of wealth,” she said.

“Listen, whoever wants to show me to where those $1 to $5 million dollars are, I would happily follow you and reclaim them because I have no idea where this money is at or where it’s from.”
