Chaya Raichik, the creator behind “Libs of TikTok,” a conservative account that aims to use the words of liberals against themselves, has revealed that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis offered her a safe place to stay at the Governor’s mansion after her identify was released to the public by Taylor Lorenz of the Washington.
Raichik appeared in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, where she told him that it was the first time that she had ever given an interview publicly.
As well as running “Libs of TikTok,” Raichik works as a real estate agent in Brooklyn. When her identity was revealed in April, she said she began receiving death threats and threats of violence. When DeSantis heard of this, she said he offered her their guest house.
“When I was doxxed, someone from Ron DeSantis’ team called me. She said, ‘The governor wanted me to give you a message. If you don’t feel safe, if you need a place to go, to hide, to stay, you can come to the governor’s mansion.’ She said, ‘We have a guest house for you, and you can stay as long as you need,'” Raichik said.
“Libs of TikTok” is one of the most popular conservative accounts on social media, and has even drawn support from big names such as Elon Musk, who, in June, questioned why Twitter was allowing accounts to send threats to Raichik.
Tucker Carlson noted this, saying that “Libs of TikTok has become one of the most important sites of reporting in the new media” and is “one of the reasons we know what’s happening in classrooms across the country.”
However, critics have accused Raichik of using the account to spread anti-trans and homophobic messages, as well as conspiracies about US elections and COVID vaccines.
