Exposed: LibsofTiktok admin Chaya Raichik does face reveal for hate-fuelled, anti-LGBTQ+ speech – now people are identifying her in January 6 Capitol riots
The woman behind far-right, anti-LGBTQ+ social media account LibsofTikTok revealed her face during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Tuesday (December 27).
The account, with the help of various far-right GOP members, built a rapid online following for posting out-of-context clips, featuring people deemed to be “on the left” (a lot of queers, basically), framed in such a way to ridicule and/ or paint its targets in a detrimental way.
In the hour-long interview, Carlson began by playing a video shared by the LibsofTikTok account, featuring mostly teachers with colourful hairstyles discussing personal pronouns and non-gendered concepts in classrooms.
“That’s information that you should definitely have but have never had until Libs of TikTok bothered to put it in one place and show you, and for doing that, the person who runs Libs of TikTok has been the focus of a lot of hate and many threats. So many that the person has remained anonymous until today,” Carlson said as he introduced Raichik.

Ahead of the interview, Raichik jumped on Twitter to defend sharing people’s videos in a way that frames them negatively, saying: “Posting publicly available videos isn’t harmful, hateful or dangerous. You know what is harmful though? Confusing kids about their identity, stealing childhood innocence, exposing kids to adult sexual entertainment, giving kids porn in school, and sterilizing and mutilating kids.”
After the interview aired, Raichick shared a screen capture showing Twitter’s new CEO, Elon Musk, having liked the tweet.

Shortly after the Carlson interview aired, social media users began sharing an article by Chad Loder, who identified Chaya Raichik as being among some since-prosecuted insurrectionists on January 6th, during the Capitol Riots.
“Today Chaya Raichik, a professional bigot whose anti-LGTBQ posts have been blamed for threats on children’s hospitals, revealed her face for the first time in an interview with Tucker Carlson, in which she called the LGBTQ community a cult”, the article reads.
“My analysis of video footage leads me to believe that Chaya Raichik was not merely present near the Capitol on January 6th, but that she trespassed on restricted Capitol grounds that day. In the rest of this article, I’ll walk you through the evidence I used to draw my conclusion, so that you form your own opinion.”
