The “Libs of TikTok” page on Facebook was “suspended for good” according to the page’s Twitter account. The account is known for going viral by posting TikToks, often from LGBT accounts, to generate outrage. The videos often are discussed on Fox News after going viral and often result in the account receiving mass amounts of hatred online.

In April, the Washington Post reported, “The account has emerged as a powerful force on the Internet, shaping right-wing media, impacting anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and influencing millions by posting viral videos aimed at inciting outrage among the right.” Although some claim it is just a social media account, it is clear to see the direct impact it has on right-wing media and shaping opinions.

But now, according to the NY Post, the account of Facebook was suspended, possibly due to Boston Children’s Hospital allegedly receiving threats after a post from Libs of TikTok got attention online. Now, however, Libs of TikTok updated their followers, stating Facebook claimed “they did not suspend our account. We have no access though and are locked out. Looks like it might be an ‘error.’ We should be back up and running soon,” they said on Twitter. But, after they were suspended from Facebook, many were calling for Twitter to follow suit and remove them as well.

Gays Against Groomers, a similar account, was also taken down after violating Twitter’s guidelines. They have since rebranded to “Gays against Broomers,” a play on words to sideline the word so as to not be removed again. Although the groomer term traditionally refers to someone building a relationship of trust with a child or someone vulnerable in order to abuse or manipulate them, the Human Rights Campaign recently reported that anti-LGBT rhetoric surged “by over 400% across social media platforms,” often referring to LGBT people as “groomers.”


“Libs of TikTok promotes violent harassment at targets and has a long history of doing so,” Erin Reed on Twitter wrote, calling for the ban of the account from Twitter as well.
