Who is Taylor Lorenz?

Nevertheless, many people are praising her for doing a job that the authorities couldn’t do. She has unmasked Chaya Raichik, a real estate salesperson in Brooklyn, the woman behind Libs of TikTok. Look at Chaya Raichik’s story from yesterday. Well, there are many on Instagram currently.

The 2020 Fortune Magazine included her in their 40 Under 40 listing and Adweek included her in their “2020 Young Influentials Who Are Shaping Media, Marketing and Tech” list.

In an interview, she revealed that she suffers from “severe PTSD” as a result of online harassment. Well, her bold actions keep her entangled in controversies. In 2015, she exchanged rings with Christopher Mims, a technology columnist at the Wall Street Journal.

Seth Dillon and Libs of TikTok

The last time I wrote about Seth Dillon and his satire website Babylon Bee was when his account was suspended following an Anti-Transgender post against Dr Rachel Levine. The right-wing parody site referred to Rachel as “The Man of the Year” in one of its posts.

Well, I personally like Babylon Bee for the light satire it offers to its readers. However, now I am keen to reveal another side of him. Taylor Lorenz has just tweeted about Seth Dillon’s involvement with Libs of TikTok. She wrote, “I had heard that Babylon Bee had recently provided financial backing for Libs of TikTok but didn’t have enough confirmations on the details to nail it in my article.”

Taylor added, “Seth Dillon, the CEO of Babylon Bee has now confirmed it.” Yes, the controversial Babylon Bee owner has tweeted yesterday that “I think they’ll also be surprised by the support she received.

I want them to know that she won’t be cancelled from her job because this “is” her job now. We worked out a deal with her that will turn her heroic high-risk work into a career. Oh, well, Seth, you’ve just taken a step further. It seems that Taylor’s article will go through several updates. What say?
