Florida Governor Ron DeSantis offered to give Libs of TikTok founder Chaya Raichik safe refuge at the Governor’s Mansion last spring after her identity was revealed in the Washington Post, spurring numerous death threats against her.
Raichik, who reposts embarrassing and revealing material from left-wing TikTok users onto Twitter, shared this interesting news during an extended interview with Tucker Carlson for Fox News Nation.
For the past year, Libs of TikTok has focused on a disturbing trend in education and popular culture—the push to expose children to sexually explicit gender ideology propaganda. This has made her a top enemy of the vicious LGBTQ-Democrat-Media complex, and is why it was so important for her to maintain her anonymity
Raichik was forced to go into hiding in April after “technology and online culture” reporter Taylor Lorenz released her name and address in a Washington Post exposé, arguing that Libs of TikTok had become 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.”
During the interview, Carlson asked if anyone had reached out to support her at the time.
“When I was doxxed, someone from Ron DeSantis’ team called me,” Raichick replied.
“And she said the governor wanted me to give you a message. He said, if you don’t feel safe or you or your family, if you need a place to go, to hide, to stay here, you can come to the governor’s mansion. That we have a guest house for you and you can come and stay as long as you need.”
“The governor of Florida?!” a stunned Carlson asked.
“Yes. I can’t even, I was almost in tears—the governor of Florida! Like he has nothing bigger to do,” she responded. “I’m living in California and he took time out of his, I’m assuming extremely busy schedule. And to send someone to call me to make sure I’m safe,” Raichik replied, adding that she was “so grateful” that DeSantis had reached out to her.

At the time, the Florida governor’s then-spokeswoman Christine Pushaw blasted Lorenz for her hypocrisy.
“Taylor Lorenz is a crybully,” Pushaw tweeted on April 18. “She can dish it out but can’t take any criticism. The worst of the worst in journalism, and there is a lot of competition for that title.”
Pushaw explained why Libs of TikTok, a private citizen, had incurred the wrath of left-wing activists.
– Degenerate progressives posted public videos about how they have sexually explicit conversations with minors
– LibsofTikTok reposted those videos
– Degenerates faced professional consequences
Following her interview with Carlson, Raichik noted on Twitter that she had had the opportunity to thank the governor in person.
“He was so gracious. Brushed it off. He said ‘of course! You do great work!’ It wasn’t even a question for him. Genuinely a kindhearted person,” Raichik wrote.
