Taylor Lorenz Under Fire After Doxxing Libs of Tik Tok Founder

Washington Post journalist Taylor Lorenz is under fire for writing an exposé about the person behind the account Libs of Tik Tok. 

Conservatives are furious that she should expose the account, which mostly shares content attacking liberals. 

Even before she published her article, in which she noted that Chaya Raichik was the person behind the account, word had spread fast about what she was about to do. 

The planned doxxing of Chaya had become public knowledge when Christina Pushaw, press secretary to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, revealed that Taylor had reached out to her for comment on the Chaya story since Pushaw had frequently interacted with the Libs of Tik Tok account. 

Well, Pushaw had no words to share with Taylor. Instead, she shared the email had written to her. 

And the outrage over Taylor’s planned doxxing began. But it didn’t stop the publication in the Washington Post. 

Some incensed tweeters condemned Taylor Lorenz and called her a hack, pointing to an earlier tweet in which she had stated that doxxing is not okay in any situation. You can check out the comments below. 

In her defence, Taylor Lorenz noted that exposing the face behind the popular account matters.
