The Libs of TikTok social media account has grown incredibly popular on the right and become a top target of the left simply because it reshares and exposes the left’s own lunacy proudly expressed on social media to more broadly critical audiences, particularly with regard to far-left progressive ideals about gender identity and sex that are aimed at young children.
On Saturday, it was revealed that the software company and chat platform Slack had “permanently suspended” Libs of TikTok from any further use of its services, the Daily Wire reported.
The news was first shared by Seth Dillon, the CEO of the satirical Babylon Bee site, who is a big supporter of the founding individual behind the Libs of TikTok account, Chaya Raichik.
Services suspended with no explanation
Early Saturday morning, Dillon tweeted, “[email protected] has permanently suspended @libsoftiktok. If your business is defending kids, Slack doesn’t want your money.”
His tweet included a screenshot of an email from Slack that stated: “We are writing to let you know that we have suspended your workspace, lott-chat.slack.com, for violations of our Acceptable Use Policy. As highlighted in Slack’s Acceptable Use Policy, Slack may exercise its right to suspend or terminate your access.”
The message went on to note that Slack had refunded the most recent $75 charge and that Libs of TikTok could obtain a copy of its own data on that platform if it filed a request.

In a follow-up tweet later in the Day, Dillon wrote, “After I tweeted that @SlackHQ had suspended Libs of TikTok, I got a reply from @asksalesforce saying they were looking into it. Sounded like they might do the right thing. But instead of reinstating the account, they deleted this tweet.

Slack owned by openly leftist parent company Salesforce
In response to the news, the Libs of TikTok Twitter account posted, “[email protected] is angry that an account is working to protect childhood innocence by educating people about mutilation surgeries, porn in schools, and inappropriate adult entertainment being presented to kids.”
The account also shared a rather revealing report about the matter from The Post Millennial that may help explain why Slack made the decision to permanently suspend Libs of TikTok from any further use of its services, as well as why Salesforce had deleted its tweet announcing that it would be “looking into this issue.”
Slack was purchased in 2020 for $27.7 billion by Salesforce, a company that has been openly “woke” and aligned with the ideological left, as evidenced by former employees, whistleblowers to Project Veritas, and public remarks from the company’s top executive condemning anyone who questions election integrity as promoting “political violence” and making a big show of supporting abortion rights and other leftwing causes.
Likely alleged incitement and encouragement of “violence or hatred”
As for the aforementioned Acceptable Use Policy of Slack, it states that “If we believe a violation of the policy is deliberate, repeated or presents a credible risk of harm to other users, our customers, the Services or any third parties, we may suspend or terminate your access.”
Though the above email contained no explanation of what purported violation by Libs of TikTok triggered the suspension, under the “Do Not” section of the policy is a clause that prohibits engagement “in activity that incites or encourages violence or hatred against individuals or groups” — and it can only be presumed that Libs of TikTok, simply by sharing what others have publicly posted, has somehow been construed to incite or encourage “violence or hatred” against the individuals or groups who originally posted what was shared.
