Elon Musk comes to defense of ‘Libs of TikTok’ over Twitter death threats
“A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country.”

Elon Musk has come to the defense of the woman behind the controversial Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” after she tweeted that she was receiving death threats.

Musk,   the Tesla CEO who has committed to acquiring the social media site for $44 billion , tweeted: “Why?” after the “Libs of TikTok” creator — who was identified by The Washington Post as Chaya Raichik of Brooklyn, New York — tweeted on Monday she had “now received about a dozen death threats after radical leftists accused me of being a domestic terrorist extremist.”

“Twitter has not removed any of the accounts of those who sent the threats,” she added.

Musk then commented: “A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country.”

The tech mogul has vowed to change Twitter’s content moderation policies once he takes the company private once the acquisition is complete.

Musk has said he intends to reinstate former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account, which was shut down after the events at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Raichik also tweeted that she was forced to relocate due to continuing death threats from other social media users.

“Update: After the events of the past 2 days I’ve decided to move to a safer location until things calm down,” read a post from “Libs of TikTok” that was tweeted on Tuesday. “Thank you all for your kind words and support.”

Raichik on Monday posted a screenshot of a message she received from another social media user who claimed to have sent her a pipe bomb “for literally supporting nazi bigots.”

“Hi  @FBI , I’m being threatened with a pipe bomb. Can you please look into this?” she tweeted in response.

Raichik tweeted that she received at least a dozen death threats from other social media users.

Last week,   Raichik was prevented from posting on her Twitter account   after users protested a tweet thread about drag shows to which young children were invited.

“Libs of TikTok” posts TikTok videos from liberals who often speak about gender identity and other hot-button issues that have become a staple of political and cultural debates.

The   account has amassed   more than 1.2 million followers.

After being doxxed by the crazed activist working for the Washington Post, the site owner continues to receive death threats.

Her "crime?"  Sharing the tik toks, tweets etc of insane liberals, often teachers, talking about their racism, sexualising  of minors etc...

Some liberals have a hard time with people telling the truth about them.

I can certainly see why!

That IS hilarious!

I guess we could always agree, if they stop telling lies about us, we could stop telling the truth about them!

Yeah, I looked it up. She routinely reposts some of the dumber things liberals say on Twitter.

Can't be telling the truth about THAT!

He's not buying Twitter now.  This story is irrelevant.

So you think domestic terrorism is irrelevant.

Domestic terrorism happens every day by conservatives/gop/gqp/republicans and by their supporters.

I read the NYPost article twice. Musk doesn't seem to want to ban anyone on either side of the pissing contest.

The pipe bomb threat sounds like it is BS but people should know better than to say things like that. A visit from the FBI would be appropriate.
