“I was doxxed, my name was shared, my location was shared, but my photo was never shared,” Raichik said.
“I have never attended in-person events. And I’m choosing to do that now because I feel like I’ve done so much over the past few months.
“I’ve helped educate people, I know I’ve helped create legislation to address some of these issues. And I think I did everything I could. And I’m ready for the next step.”
The Twitter influencer said after she was outed, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis offered to stay in a guest house at his mansion for her protection.
“I was almost in tears,” she said.
“He took the time, despite his extremely busy schedule, to send someone to call me to make sure I was safe.
“It was amazing, I don’t even have the words for it.”
Since its launch in 2020, Libs of TikTok has amassed 1.7 million followers on Twitter, with celebrities including podcaster Joe Rogan and US television personality Meghan McCain praising the account for uncovering instances of “wakeiness.”
Raichik reposts videos from TikTok, often of transgender or LGBT people who she claims are grooming children.
Rogan called the site “one of the greatest accounts of all time.”
“They want their content out there, but they don’t want us to see it. It doesn’t add up,” Raichik told Carlson.
“You’re allowed to post it, but we’re not allowed to notice it. Crime notices what they do.”
Raichik said her work “fired about a dozen teachers” and caused the cancellation of a “handful” of drag shows.
“The LGBTQ community has become this cult and it’s so compelling and pulls people in like nothing we’ve ever seen,” she said.
“And they brainwash people into going along with them, and they convince them of all these things, and it’s really, really hard to get out of there.”
Last year, Libs of TikTok struggled with Twitter when the platform slammed Raichik with accusations of “hateful behavior” and suspended the account multiple times.
Earlier this month, independent journalist Bari Weiss detailed how the popular social media account was targeted by Twitter executives.
In an image shared by Weiss, the Libs of TikTok account appeared to have a “trends blacklist” and had a red warning banner warning: “Do not act against users without consulting SIP PES.”
“Think of a high follower account, controversial,” a Twitter rep told Weiss of the types of accounts the secretive Site Integrity Policy, Policy Escalation Support Team (SIP-PES) would handle. There is “no ticket or anything” for these accounts, according to the employee.
Libs of TikTok has been internally flagged as “high profile” by Twitter.
According to Weiss, Raichik said Libs of TikTok was suspended six times in 2022, with the suspensions lasting a week, for allegedly violating the company’s policy against “hateful behavior.”
However, an internal SIP PES letter from October 2022, discovered by Weiss, notes that Libs of TikTok “has not been directly involved in any behavior violating the Hateful Behavior Policy since the seventh time the account was suspended.”
“The committee justified her suspension internally by stating that her posts encouraged online harassment of ‘hospitals and medical providers’ by implying ‘that gender-affirming healthcare is tantamount to child abuse or nurturing,'” Weiss noted, noting, that “no action was taken”. a November 2022 tweet revealing Raichik’s home address.
