Libs of TikTok flips the script on WaPo's Taylor Lorenz in revealing interview

Raichik wore a shirt with a picture of Lorenz crying on it.


On Saturday, The Washington Post's resident mask enthusiast Taylor Lorenz conducted a tense interiew with Libs of TikTok founder Chaya Raichik. Lorenz wore Covid-era mask outside in Califronia; Raichik wore a shirt with a picture of Lorenz crying on it.

During the interview posted on YouTube, Lorenz questioned what led Raichik to be more forceful in her opposition to the media. Raichik said it was "the lies and defamation, the hypocrisy."

Early in the interview, Raichik asked Lorenz about the death threats she gets, if journalists should condemn those attacks, and if they are responsible for the attacks on her. Lorenz said she never claimed that she never suggested that Raichik should have to answer for threats after she posts.

The topic came up later in the interview when Lorenz asked Raichik about the violent threats that places receive after a post she makes. "We do not know who makes the threat, Bomb threats are bad. I've said that a thousand times. People who call in bomb threats should be arrested." Raichik responded. "I just don’t know, what does it have to do with me?"

She proceeded to then ask Lorenz if she thought journalists were responsible for the death threats she received after the media posted about her. Lorenz claimed that the level of responsibility is different "when talking about the media" and that a death threat is different from a bomb threat and is "normalized."

When pressed on the issue of pornagraphy being distributed to children in schools, Lorenz admitted she hadn't read any of the books that have sparked controversy in elementary and middle schools. She appeared shocked when Raichek showed her a example of the graphic material.

Raichek took the time in the interview to shout out independent journalists and paid specific tribute to Mike Cernovich and Human Events' own Jack Posobiec.

Earlier this week, the media claimed that the death of a child in Oklahoma was the result of bullying because of the work that Raichik does in trying to get porn material out of school libraries in the state. Raichik told Lorenz that the the death was "very tragic, it's horrible."

The media narrative around Dagny Benedict, known as Nex, fell apart when bodycam footage was released in which the child said the fight started after she poured water on three girls in the bathroom. She also said that she didn't have any interaction with the girls before the fight.

It was revealed earlier this week, that Benedict did not die from injuries sustained in the fight, but that an investigation is underway, and authorities are still waiting on toxicology reports to come back.
