Influencer with same name as 'Libs of TikTok' user blames Taylor Lorenz for cyberbullying

Taylor Lorenz was blasted by an Instagram influencer who said she was being cyberbullied because she has the same name as the operator of the right-leaning Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” who was allegedly “doxxed” by the Washington Post reporter on Tuesday, Kossyderrickent has learnt. (Read More Here).


Chaya Raichik, a stay-at-home mother of two children living in the United Kingdom, bears the same name as the Brooklyn-based realtor who Lorenz revealed this week to be the Twitter user behind “Libs of TikTok,” a pro-conservative account that posts TikTok videos of liberals deemed by some to be extremist.

“This is ON YOU!” Raichik wrote, tagging Lorenz. “You need to clarify that this is not me. People are posting and tweeting my parents home address!!!”

She added: “If anything happens to my family it is on you!”

The influencer Raichik told her Instagram followers that she “woke up this morning to hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of new followers.”

Just want to make clear that this Chaya Raichik on IG is NOT the Chaya behind Libs of TikTok! Chaya Musha is a common name, that’s why I worked so hard to confirm that I reported on the correct one. The Chaya behind Libs of TikTok does not have a personal IG or LinkedIn.

“I don’t really travel much so I haven’t been to Washington, DC, ever,” she said.

“I don’t have my real estate license, unfortunately, so I’m not a realtor,” Raichik added.

“I’m Jewish so my name is quite popular,” she said. Raichik added that she does not have a Twitter account.

Lorenz took to social media on Wednesday and urged her nearly 300,000 followers on Twitter to leave Chaya Raichik, a married stay-at-home mother of two from Los Angeles, alone.

The term “doxxing” refers to the act of posting sensitive, personal information online as a means of punishing or harassing the intended target by inviting trolls to abuse them.

A Washington Post spokesperson told the New York Post that the newspaper removed the link which took readers to a page that revealed her previous professional address.

Following the viral firestorm stemming from her report, Lorenz decried in now-deleted tweets that "trolls" have targeted her family and begun "doxxing and stalking" her friends on Instagram as part of "transparent attempts to silence the press."

Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon announced on Tuesday he is partnering with Libs of TikTok, tweeting he "worked out a deal with her that will turn her heroic, high-risk work into a career."

Libs of TikTok was the target of several hit pieces from Media Matters and was also in Twitter's crosshairs, repeatedly punishing her account, which now has over 700,000 Twitter followers.

In a recent interview with Pod Save America, Lorenz called online harassment a "tool to silence people, especially women… for speaking out" and decried how her family members were harassed, calling it "horrifying and invasive."
