Representative Dan Crenshaw, who lost an eye while deployed in Afghanistan, was heckled by far right and Proud Boys-adjacent protesters at a GOP event, with one bringing up the recurring nickname of 'Eyepatch McCain' at the Congressman.

Crenshaw, 38, has been called that in reference to the late Republican Senator John McCain ever since Tucker Carlson first brought the moniker up in mid-May.

The Congressman was being accosted by a group of hecklers including Alex Stein, a self-described 'comedian and social activist' and others whom witnesses told Mediaite were Proud Boys at  the Republican Party of Texas convention Saturday.

The video, which Stein tweeted out himself, shows Stein and others approaching Crenshaw at the event.

'Eyepatch McCain! Hey, Eyepatch McCain! Look at Eyepatch McCain right here! You're a globalist RINO!' he is heard yelling at the Congressman before being led away.

Crenshaw hit back on Twitter later Saturday, calling Stein an 'angry little boy' who 'can't get girlfriends.'

Stein quote-tweeted Crenshaw and remarked: 'Dan, I'm 2 feet taller than you bud...lol.'

Carlson first used the name - a reference to both the past military service and occasional breaking from the far right line of Senator McCain - on May 16 after Crenshaw was critical of those who didn't support military aid for Ukraine, according to The Daily Beast
