A columnist for The Washington Post, Taylor Lorenz, wrote an article doxing the owner of the famous “Libs of TikTok” account as well as her family.

The article accused the account of “fueling the right’s outrage machine” and “spreading anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment.” Libs of TikTok is known for re-posting TikToks from creators on the radical left. The account is popular on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

“Taylor Lorenz is a terrible journalist and worse human. Targeting a Twitter account that literally just posts Leftists owning themselves because that account damages the Left is pure Lorenz,” Ben Shapiro tweeted.

Youtuber Tim Pool said what Lorenz did was “wrong,” and tweeted, “One of the most important journalistic ethics is to minimize harm. The story is not served by exposing a name, the story is served by explaining their background and motives. Based on the responses to the story you can see the true motivation was to cause harm.”

Conservative journalist, Ed Morrissey, said, “So today the @washingtonpost decided to doxx an anonymous Twitter user who got popular for reposting Tik Tok videos, complete with a link to her professional license listing. Straight trash. Who’s the editor that gave this the green light? I’ll have more shortly.”

After all the backlash, the Libs of TikTok owner joked:

Libs of TikTok also shared a previous video of Taylor Lorenz hypocritically talking about online harassment, saying it can be a tool to silence women.

The owner said yesterday that she is safe and appreciates all the support she received.

Taylor Lorenz even reached out to others to try to expose the Libs of TikTok account. Lorenz reached out to Governor Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw and gave her only an hour to respond.

In an email, Pushaw told Lorenz that the account “does a great job exposing degeneracy by showcasing liberals in their own words.” She continued, “It’s a shame that any journalist would want to ruin her life!”

Lorenz also reached out to a similar account to Libs of TikTok and said, “you’re being implicated as starting a hate campaign against LGBTQ people.”

The Washington Post later released a statement saying that Lorenz “is an accomplished and diligent journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with The Washington Post’s professional standards.”

The Libs of TikTok account accused The Washington Post of lying and said, “They included a link with personal information which they later removed because they knew what they were doing was abhorrent.”
