Washington Post culture beat reporter, Taylor Lorenz, is accused of doxxing the anonymous Twitter account Libs of TikTok.
Lorenz is the same journalist who broke down in tears on MSNBC earlier this month because of the supposed harassment that she and her family experienced online. The same harassment that she’s dishing out on the creator of Lib of TikTok.
So why is this “journalist” going after a Twitter user and her family? Especially after the performance she put on about being bullied herself?
Libs of TikTok is a popular Twitter account that posts TikTok videos that expose the crazed leftists and their extreme behavior that children are exposed to on the Chinese-owned app.
“We are running a story exposing the woman behind the ‘Libs of TikTok’ account. Our story mentions your many interactions with the account and praise of it. If you’d like to offer comment, please let me know within the next hour,” the email from Lorenz said.
She was called out for her hypocrisy after it was revealed that Lorenz was showing up at the account creators’ relatives’ homes harassing them.
“Which of my relatives did you enjoy harassing the most at their homes yesterday?” read the caption attached to the photo of a woman who bears Lorenz’s likeness.
I’m not sure if Lorenz thought she would be praised for her doxxing practices, but she was called out by critics on Twitter.
Of course, Lorenz defended herself because it’s okay when she harasses and doxes people but not when they do it to her.
Lorenz defended her decision to reveal the woman’s identity, tweeting: “Reporters make phone calls, send messages, show up places, and knock on doors when reporting out a story.”
Lorenz added: “I reported this story out extensively, using every tool I had, to ensure I had the correct woman.”
In response to criticism that she targeted a private citizen who wished to remain anonymous, Lorenz tweeted that the social media user “isn’t just some average woman with a social media account” but is instead a “powerful influencer operating a massively impactful right-wing media shaping discourse around LGBTQ+ rights.”
“Libs of TikTok” thanked those defending her for the outpouring of support.
“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,” the owner said. “I’m confident we will get through this and come out even stronger. Grateful for all the thoughts and prayers.”
Lorenz is just another of the leftist liberals who are of the mindset that you can’t do what I can do. The hypocrisy is overwhelming when she was literally crying about bullying and harassment just a few weeks ago and feels it’s okay to turn around and do it to someone else.
LibsOfTikTok are doing the work that needs to be done. These insane people on the left need exposed and that’s exactly what they’re doing. We can only hope that this minor speed bump will not deter them from continuing with their work.
