Some of the best grassroots campaigns happen on Twitter. 

Podcaster and YouTube commentator Tim Pool, incensed like many at Washington Post employee Taylor Lorenz’s unmasking of the woman behind the wildly popular Libs of TikTok account, asked his 1.1 million Twitter followers Monday if he should do something about it.

“Should I buy a billboard in Times Square saying Taylor Lorenz doxxed @libsoftiktok…I wouldn’t care if they just owned it but the gaslighting deserves a proper rebuttal,” Pool tweeted.

The query prompted a flood of replies, including one from Jeremy Boreing, co-CEO and god-king of The Daily Wire.

“Yes. Do it. I’m good for half.” Boreing wrote.

Calls were made, strings were pulled and on Tuesday, Pool shared a video of the digital billboard in Times Square.

“Hey WaPo, democracy dies in darkness, that’s why we’re shining a light on you,” read the message, in a jab at the maxim the pompous paper struggles to live up to.

 

“The Washington Post and Taylor Lorenz Doxxed @libsoftiktok,” it continued. “They included a link to private work details and an address listed as Libs’ private home. They lied about it so I got an ad in Times Square calling them out. Thanks to @JeremyDBoreing for the assist.”

Lorenz named the Libs of TikTok creator and even initially linked to real estate documents that gave her address, later saying she acted out of concern the site, which simply reposts left-wing crackpots’ own TikTok videos, may have been a foreign disinformation plot. After the sign went up over the Big Apple landmark, she sought to lash out at her detractors.

“Tim Pool and the CEO of the Daily Wire took out a giant billboard in Times Square today in an attempt to discredit my reporting on Libs of TikTok,” Lorenz tweeted along with a link to her article. She limited replies to those she follows or mentioned. 

Libs of TikTok also retweeted Pool’s video, reacting with a succinct, “OMG.”

The Washington Post, the news organization known for breaking the Watergate story and now owned by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, has stood by the dubious story and its writer amid the growing chorus of criticism.

“Taylor Lorenz is a diligent and accomplished journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with the Washington Post’s professional standards,”Senior Managing Editor Cameron Barr said in a statement. 

It wasn’t the first time Boreing used billboards to troll adversaries. Jeremy’s Razors also put up advertisements for the new company, which Boreing started to compete with Harry’s after they pulled their advertisements from The Daily Wire in 2021 and then attacked the outlet for its “misalignment” of values.

The Jeremy’s Razors ads were positioned directly across the street from Harry’s headquarters in New York City.

“It must be a breath of fresh air to walk out of the @harrys HQ to see that beautiful salt and pepper beard,” Jeremy’s Razors tweeted after the ads went up.

Jeremy’s Razors shared in a press release that the company “will begin accepting pre-orders for shaving kits today that customers can expect to be delivered by Father’s Day.” Pre-orders are available at ihateharrys.com.
