The software company Slack informed Chaya Raichik, the founder of Libs of TikTok, this week that it permanetely suspended her from being able to use their services over a violation that the company would not disclose.
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, who is a top supporter of Libs of TikTok, posted a screenshot of the email that the company sent explaining their decision to not do business with Raichik.
“We are writing to let you know that we have suspended your workspace, lott-chat.slack.com, for violations of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the company said. “As highlighted in Slack’s Acceptable Use Policy, Slack may exercise its right to suspend or terminate your access.”
“We have refunded the most recent monthly charge of $75 to your credit card,” the email continued. “You can expect to see a refund on our card in 5-7 business days. We can provide you with a copy of the data stored in your Slack instance using an electronic file transfer service on request.”
Dillon responded to the email by tweeting: “@SlackHQ has permanently suspended @libsoftiktok. If your business is defending kids, Slack doesn’t want your money.”
Raichik responded to the suspension online, writing: “@SlackHQ 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.”
Raichik did not respond to a request for comment.
Slack’s decision comes as Raichik is set to debut her first children’s book next month, “No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern.”
“I wanted to [take] the next step, which is to give parents and children a tool that they can use to actually be able to spot predatory behavior,” she said in a statement. “This book basically teaches children that if there is a trusted adult or an authority who’s telling you to keep secrets from your parents — then that is a big red flag.”
