After Taylor Lorenz doxed Libs of Tik Tok in the pages of the Washington Post, she complained that her "whole family was doxxed." Then she deleted the tweet.
"After my whole family was doxxed again this morning trolls have now moved on to doxxing and stalking any random friend I've tagged on IG," Lorenz wrote.
"They're posting their personal details of my friends and sending threatening texts w/ messages 'I noticed you are close to Taylor Lorenz...'"
Lorenz posted details of the messages that she said were sent to her friends and family.
Lorenz had published personal details of the account owner for Libs of Tik Tok before the Washington Post later scrubbed the details from the article, and had gone knocking on the doors of family members of Libs of Tik Tok in order to find out more details about the owner of the account.
The Washington Post defended Lorenz's journalistic practices, saying that "Taylor Lorenz is an accomplished and diligent journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with The Washington Post's professional standards. Chaya Raichik, in her management of the Libs of Tik Tok account and in media interviews, has had significant impact on public discourse and her identity has become public knowledge on social media. We did not public or link to any details about her personal life."
