Back in late August, Washington Post tech and culture reporter Taylor Lorenz tweeted that the account Libs of TikTok had weaponized its audience to terrorize a children’s hospital, of all things. Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon offered a $20,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the person behind the alleged bomb threat. And as we told you Monday, Lorenz reached out to Libs of TikTok for comment on a big story her colleague was writing. “We mention in the story that your account has helped to foster violence and that your posts led to death threats against Boston Children’s Hospital, and a bomb threat caused the hospital to be evacuated.

Christopher Rufo decided to look into this alleged bomb threat, speaking to the Boston Police Department.

Lorenz has the full investigative might of the Washington Post at her disposal. Which of Libs of TikTok’s followers was weaponized to call in a bomb threat? How did the police learn about it? How’s the investigation going? These are all questions that Lorenz should be answering in follow-up reports, since the burden of proof is upon her.
