‘Libs of TikTok’ Creator In “Safe Location” After WaPo Doxxing

Libs of TikTok is a popular and influential social media account that regularly targets liberals and civil rights protesters, as well as school teachers it accuses of teaching sexually sensitive material to children or promoting LGBTQ+ rights.

On Tuesday, the Washington Post identified Chaya Raichik as the creator of the account, which is popular among conservatives and has more than 500,000 followers on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Raichik said on Tuesday she has gone into hiding following the publication of her name by the left-leaning D.C. daily newspaper.

“Words cannot express how appreciative I am of the support I’m receiving right now. Thankfully I’m currently holed up in a safe location,” a message posted Tuesday on the Libs of TikTok Twitter account read. “I’m confident we will get through this and come out even stronger.”

The publication of Raichik’s name in the Post has been met with ire by various conservatives, among them Christina Pushaw, the press secretary for Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis. Pushaw called the Post “oligarch-owned State Media.”

Other conservative are outraged with Post writer Taylor Lorenz for publishing Raichik’s name.

“Taylor Lorenz is a terrible journalist and worse human,” political commentator Ben Shapiro tweeted. “Targeting a Twitter account that literally just posts Leftists owning themselves because that account damages the Left is pure Lorenz.”

Lorenz wrote Raichik had been working as a real estate agent in Brooklyn when she created the Libs of Tik Tok account in November 2020. Before The Washington Post’s story on Tuesday, various Twitter users had also named Raichik as the creator of the account, including one person who claimed Raichik was present at the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021.
