Talk about chutzpah… Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz had the gall to ask Libs of TikTok to help her colleague on a big election fraud story while accusing her of fostering violence and engendering death threats against medical providers.
“Hi Chaya, a colleague of mine is publishing a big story on influencers who spread narratives about election fraud in 2020, exploring what happened to their megaphones after Trump was de-platformed,” Lorenz wrote Monday in an email sent to the creator of the Libs of TikTok account, Chaya Raichik.
“You are not one of these influencers, but your account has received extensive promotion from them. We mention in the story that your account has helped to foster violence and that your posts led to death threats against medical providers at Boston Children’s Hospital, and a bomb threat caused the hospital to be evacuated. We also say you intend to continue to target hospitals. Do you have any comment?” Lorenz reportedly wrote in the email. “The piece is running tomorrow morning, so please send through a response to the above questions by 5pm PST. Thanks!”
The response was perhaps not what the leftist attacker had hoped for.
“Why is she obsessed with me? @TaylorLorenz, I don’t want to date you,” Libs of TikTok hilariously replied.

“Hi Chaya, I think you accidentally replied to the wrong DM. This is Taylor Lorenz from the Washington Post and we’re asking you to reply to the question above. We mention in a story running tomorrow morning that your account has helped to foster violence and that your posts led to death threats against medical providers at Boston Children’s Hospital, and a bomb threat caused the hospital to be evacuated. We also say you intend to continue to target hospitals. Do you have any comment on that?” Lorenz densely responded.
“Taylor is very sad that I rejected her. But I softened the blow with some good news,” Libs of TikTok tweeted and then shared her response, “Hey Tay, I know getting rejected must be really difficult. In some good news, Ross has a 55+ senior discount on Tuesdays so maybe that will make you feel better.”

This exchange is in response to Libs of TikTok exposing a hospital that allegedly admitted to performing gender-affirming hysterectomies on minors.
“Last week, I was wrongfully suspended from Twitter for seven days after I exposed a hospital that admitted to performing gender-affirming hysterectomies on healthy minors. I say ‘wrongfully’ because the reason given for my suspension was hateful conduct. I did not engage in hateful conduct. I accurately reported the truth,” she posted on Substack.
“My biggest fan, Taylor Lorenz, wrote another hit piece about me yesterday claiming that Twitter executives are facing ‘internal pressure from some employees to respond more aggressively’ to my account. The only thing more aggressive than a seven day suspension would be a permanent ban. But if that happens — if they ban my account for hateful conduct when all I’ve done is report the facts — then I’ll sue them for breach of contract. I’ll also bring claims under California state law and the California Constitution,” she vowed.
Then she told Lorenz to “cry harder.”

The battle between Libs of TikTok and Lorenz is ongoing. It’s a fight that the WaPo reporter loses at every turn.
Twitter is afire with response to Libs of TikTok being asked to help with a big WaPo election fraud story… in a word, she was dragged:
“Hi, we’re about to run a piece accusing you of encouraging domestic terrorism, do you have any comment? Thanks!”

Taylor is the high school girl who walks around saying “I just hate drama” whilst being the cause of literally all the drama

Reporting on unethical practices taking place at a hospital is “targeting hospitals”?
If you were calling out hospitals for performing lobotomies instead of mutilating children’s breasts and genitals, I doubt they’d frame it as “targeting hospitals.”

“We are going to blame you for the alleged actions of other, even if we don’t have any evidence that these actions happened. Do you have a comment?”

“My colleague is writing about you but I’m obsessed so I asked if I could be the one to harass you”

“We are publishing a story on something totally unrelated, but we will still use it to repeat our baseless accusations against you”

“…your account has helped to…”
Note the deceptive insinuation that telling the truth somehow makes YOU liable for ever-ambiguous “violence.”
Even their messages to you are filled with veiled threats.
