Ben Shapiro Just DEMOLISHED Leftist Reporter Taylor Lorenz Over Lies & Doxxing LibsOfTikTok

TheQuartering [4/20/2022]

According to TheDailyWire:

The real person behind the popular Libs of TikTok account just provided an update following the explosive Washington Post article revealing personal details about her, including her name and location.

“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. I’m confident we will get through this and come out even stronger. Grateful for all the thoughts and prayers ❤️,” she shared on Twitter.

This update comes following a tumultuous couple of hours. Monday night, Ron DeSantis spokesperson Christina Pushaw shared an email she received from Taylor Lorenz saying she planned to release a story about the anonymous person who runs the Libs of TikTok account, and was seeking comment. Multiple prominent accounts expressed their outrage, especially considering the fact that Lorenz had just done an interview with MSNBC in which she denounced online harassment.

However, Lorenz’s sympathy doesn’t extend to people who have opposing political views, apparently. Libs of TikTok posted photos of the journalist “harassing” her family by visiting their homes. The Post article details exactly how the journalist hunted down the social media user’s identity. 

Lorenz traced Libs of TikTok back through all her old Twitter handles, including ones that featured her real name. She also checked to see who registered the Libs of TikTok domain. 

The WaPo journalist noted how software developer Travis Brown posted a thread of the account’s Twitter history and profile changes. The Daily Dot also did an expose on the formerly anonymous account.

The news article accuses the account of having “deep and far-reaching” impact plus “shaping right-wing media, impacting anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and influencing millions by posting viral videos aimed at inciting outrage among the right.”
