Just one week after The Washington Post’s Taylor Lorenz doxxed the formerly anonymous creator of Libs of TikTok, Linktree, a popular website used to compile multiple links in one place, deplatformed the account without warning or much explanation.
Present in every single Libs of TikTok account bio is a Linktree link that redirects visitors to the creator’s newsletter and other social media accounts. Now anyone who tries to access the account’s Linktree page is blocked and presented with a message claiming that “this account has been removed due to inappropriate use of this service.”
Libs of TikTok gained popularity for reposting TikTok videos and photos that expose the radical leftism present in America, especially within public schools. The account includes commentary about progressive teachers who try to force advertisements for genital mutilation, pornographic library books, and critical race theory on students as young as 5 years old.
The account creator alleged that Linktree’s censorship was politically-motivated since “I have done nothing wrong.”
“Linktree just deleted my account citing ‘inappropriate use of this service.’ When I try to log in it says my account is no longer accessible. Why am I suddenly being censored? @Linktree_ Shame on you! Give me account back,” Libs of TikTok tweeted on Wednesday.
The creator also tweeted, “We will have to look for alternatives.”
Linktree did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.
Since The Washington Post published its hit piece, which included antisemitic tropes and bragged about “exposing” the woman behind the account, Libs of TikTok has amassed a total of more than 1.1 million followers on Twitter.
