Twitter account “Libs of Tik Tok” was suspended from the platform for 12 hours on Wednesday, according to reports.
Twitter cited “hateful conduct” for the suspension, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon tweeted, but it wasn’t clear what post specifically led to the suspension. The account, which has more than 600,000 followers, mainly focuses on making fun of liberal leaning posts on TikTok and other sites.
The platform’s “hateful conduct” policy says, “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” Dillon noted.
“Libs of Tik Tok” expressed concerns over censorship late last month, pinning a post on March 28 that said, “It’s a matter of time before I get suspended. Never know which post will be my last. If you want to make sure you keep receiving my content, go to the link under my bio and sign up for my email list.”
The final tweet before their suspension shows a woman carping about parents who don’t want their children being taught about sexual orientation and gender fluidity.
The caption for the post read, “This is what the left really thinks. Listen when they tell you. They want to take your kids to groom and indoctrinate them behind your back.”
Twitter suspended the Babylon Bee’s account last month for violating the platform’s “hateful conduct” rules over a joke naming Biden administration official Dr. Rachel Levine, who is a transgender woman, the satire site’s “Man of the Year” for 2022.
Political commentator Jack Posobiec was also recently suspended from Twitter for 12 hours for referring to Disney as “groomers.”
