A leaked room from TikTok has become a viral phenomenon on Twitter. However, it’s not all good. The Libs of TikTok have been suspended by Twitter and targeted Boston Children’s Hospital and Akron Children’s Hospital for providing gender-affirming care. In this article, we’ll look at the incident and the Libs’ response.
Libs of TikTok targeted Boston Children’s Hospital
The Libs of TikTok social media account targets LGBTQ+ individuals and institutions. The account has a long history of targeting children’s hospitals, teachers, and pride events. Most recently, it attacked a tea shop in Salt Lake City for hosting a family-friendly drag show, and urged followers to call Child Protective Services on a trans couple with a newborn.
The controversial social media account is run by Chaya Raichik, a Brooklyn real estate agent. In a video posted on the site, she accuses Boston Children’s Hospital of performing gender-affirming hysterectomies on young girls. The hospital, which is based in Boston, denies performing gender-affirming surgery on underage patients.
Libs of TikTok have posted numerous false and libelous claims online about the Boston Children’s Hospital. One of the most bizarre and disturbing claims they made was that the hospital performed gender-affirming surgeries on young children. As a result, the hospital was the target of threats, harassment, and even bomb threats. Fortunately, the hospital is working with law enforcement to put an end to these acts of online hate speech.
Twitter took action against the account, suspending it for seven days. The Libs of TikTok also targeted the Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. The videos were meant to vilify patients and healthcare providers. One hospital even requested the help of law enforcement after the videos were uploaded.
The Libs of TikTok have used the violence of far-right groups against LGBTQ+ people to gain a following. The Libs of TikTok also use the content of Christian fascist Kelly Neidert on the site. The account has not been verified and is not a medical expert. In fact, she used to be a real estate agent before she began using social media. Despite the fact that she is not a medical professional, she was able to find a way to lie about the gender-affirming care of transgender teenagers.
Although Libs of TikTok’s Twitter page is still active, the account’s Facebook page has been suspended. The tweets about Boston Children’s Hospital were taken down by Facebook after GLAAD contacted Meta, which did not respond to requests for comment. The Libs of TikTok account has not posted since 5 p.m. on Wednesday. The videos posted on the page often feature footage from the hospital’s website and commentary that insinuates that the children who were under their care were not transgender.
Akron Children’s Hospital targeted for providing gender-affirming care
Social media users are targeting hospitals nationwide for providing gender-affirming care. Boston Children’s Hospital was the first to receive harassment from far-right accounts, and now Akron Children’s Hospital is in the crosshairs of the same right-wing trolls. The hospital runs the first pediatric transgender health program in the United States, and it’s no surprise that it’s being targeted.
Earlier this year, Akron Children’s Hospital opened a Center for Gender Affirming Medicine. According to hospital officials, the clinic is aimed at helping adolescents who struggle with gender identity. The hospital is the first in Ohio to offer such care.
The clinic is run by gender-affirming medical providers and includes social workers, nurse coordinators, and a mental health therapist. While the hospital does not offer sex-reassignment surgeries, it does offer medications and social support for transgender youth. While transgender youths face many risks, such as homelessness and depression, Akron Children’s Hospital is committed to helping them feel safe.
A letter sent to the hospital from major medical organizations has called for the Justice Department to investigate threats to the hospital and its staff. The letter did not identify the hospital, but cited similar incidents at Boston Children’s Hospital, Akron Children’s Hospital, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. The attacks are not only targeting transgender youth, but anyone seeking health care.
In addition to the Akron Children’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital Association, and Children’s Hospital Association have also faced pressure. Some of the groups are attempting to pass legislation restricting gender-affirming care. On Twitter, far-right accounts are attacking transgender healthcare providers, and some have misled their followers through misinformation.
TikTok leaked room trending on Twitter
The hashtag #tiktokleakroom is trending on Twitter, with videos featuring the theme music to the popular TV show “Girl Meets World” gaining more than half a million views. Users on Twitter, Reddit, and a forum have been sharing the same video of the room. Apparently, this video was originally uploaded to pornographic sites, but has been shared on TikTok instead.
While TikTok has become popular with celebrities, the site also has a darker side. In one recent case, an anonymous Twitter user created an account called the TikTok Leaked Room to post explicit videos of Peyton Meyer. The video, which has since been removed, has caused outrage and controversy.
The video is allegedly from a video by the TikTok user ‘Leak Room’, which has more than 30K followers. In the video, Peyton Meyer can be seen in a compromising position with an unknown female. Many users have speculated that the woman is his girlfriend.
After the scandal, the account was banned from Twitter. It is unclear whether Meyer is responsible for the alleged leak. The account had more than 30,000 followers prior to its suspension. But many people are still left wondering whether Meyer was actually in the video. The account was suspended from Twitter because of the inflammatory videos.
While Twitter has suspended the account of Babylon Bee following the transgender story, the company has confirmed that it has provided financial support to Raichik. The Twitter account was suspended by Twitter after the story broke, but Seth Dillon has defended his company. Twitter has reached out to The Post for comment.
Libs of TikTok suspended by Twitter
Libs of TikTok has been suspended by Twitter for 12 hours due to alleged “hateful conduct.” This move comes amid a recent offer by Elon Musk to purchase the company. Many see this as a victory for free speech, but others say it is a blow to democracy.
The tweets were sent by an account called Raichik. They were intended to criticize the Hilliard City School District for allowing teachers to wear badges. This came less than an hour after another account, Chris Rufo, had shared a thread criticizing the same school district.
Raichik claims to be the sole creator of the Libs of TikTok account, but it’s not entirely clear who owns it. He has filed a trademark for the site as a news reporter service, but declined to comment to The Post.
Libs of TikTok’s suspension by Twitter was caused by a series of tweets that vilified trans youth and teachers. Several other Twitter users echoed this sentiment and also voiced concern about the content of the tweets. Libs of TikTok has been suspended multiple times over the past year because of abuse and hate speech.
While Libs of TikTok has denied erroneously posting the information, the hospital has been the victim of threats from the right-wing crowd. Inflamed anti-trans rhetoric discourages many patients from seeking gender-affirming care. However, the potential happiness of living as one’s true self is worth it.
The account’s creator, Chaya Raichik, says the account’s followers are anti-LGBTQ+, but the content itself is based on public information. Libs of TikTok’s followers regularly harass the subjects of the videos. They also share anti-LGBTQ+ memes and retweet far-right sources. Raichik has more reach than she probably thought, and it’s possible that she is living in California.
