Emma Langevin, a TikTok personality, has come under vicious attack from social justice warriors on the internet for apparently following "white supremacists."
So who are these so-called "white supremacists?" They are the transgender conservative Blaire White, "breadtuber" June Lapine, and YouTuber Gregory Fluhrer. Of course, it goes without saying that White, Lapine, and Fluhrer are nothing of the sort.
Langevin rose to prominence over the last week for her quirkiness and unusual accent. She typically posts material thought to be edgy, which is a category that a modern audience is looking for.
And it is because of those on the internet who have nothing better to do than cancel someone who has carved out a space for themselves that Langevin has been apologizing all over the place to try and stem the backlash she has received.
Langevin has even had to qualify the reasons for following certain accounts, such as White, in saying she does not agree with the politics but still wants to hear all sides of an argument.
But even if Langevin did agree with the accounts she is criticized for following, it is questionable whether she would admit it, as it would undoubtedly get her ostracized from the social justice camp.
A Twitter user named @lycheemoji who sports a hammer and sickle and "death to america" in their Twitter bio launched the campaign against Langevin. The user then bragged about getting donations as a result of her successful mobbing of Langevin.
And unless Langevin wishes to be dog-piled by the PC authoritarian camp indefinitely, she has to continue self-flagellating for her crimes of following accounts that run counter to the far-left ideology of "safe-spaces" and "compelled speech."
@lycheemoji also celebrated a man's attempted suicide because if it he had so much "male guilt," then it was perhaps a better option. She also brags about donations she is receiving from random people online after gaining "hypervisibility" as a result of this pile-on.
White, a TPM columnist, has since paused her Twitter account because people are being attacked for following her, which has to wear on someone who is a content creator. White's audience has now become fuel for those who simply want to tear her down.
We reached out to White, who told us: "YouTube and social media has been my full-time job for 4 years now, and as a result I've grown a thick skin. Many of my fans don't have this thick skin and face abuse online for merely following me. This is on a bigger scale due to the person involved, but I see it every day. It needs to stop."
