Seth Dillon, CEO of the popular satire website the Babylon Bee, declared that he has a reached a deal with the woman behind the popular Libs of Tik Tok Twitter account “that will turn her heroic, high-risk work into a career.”
He noted that the deal is not with the Babylon Bee, but that he “personally” made the deal with her.
Libs of Tik Tok shares videos of leftists openly exposing their radical attitudes and beliefs.
Dillon’s declaration comes after Libs of Tik Tok has recently faced Twitter suspensions, and a Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz faces criticism for a piece that names and discusses a woman said to be behind the account.
Libs of Tik Tok tweeted on Tuesday, “Hi @TaylorLorenz! Which of my relatives did you enjoy harassing the most at their homes yesterday?”
Dillon declared on Twitter, “The exposure of @libsoftiktok isn’t journalism; it’s pure intimidation. They’re threatened by her effectiveness, so they hope to silence her by making her too afraid to continue. They want to raise the cost of doing her work so high that she has no choice but to quit.”
“I want them to know that she won’t be canceled from her job because this *is* her job now. I’ve worked out a deal with her that will turn her heroic, high-risk work into a career,” he wrote. “They may have exposed her, but they’ll never stop her. Long live @libsoftiktok.”
On the heels of Dillon’s tweet, Lorenz remarked, “I had heard that Babylon Bee had recently provided financial backing for @libsoftiktok but didn’t have enough confirmation on the details to nail it down for my story. Seth Dillon, CEO of the Babylon Bee has now confirmed it.”
But Dillon fired back, noting that the Babylon Bee did not make the deal, but rather that he had made the deal with the woman himself.
“The Babylon Bee didn’t do a deal with her. The Bee is a satire publication. You know, like the Washington Post. I did a deal with her personally. Also, I want to thank you for amplifying the voices you try to suppress. Your promotion of @libsoftiktok today has been priceless,” Dillon tweeted.
