This week, Chaya Raichik (creator of Libs of TikTok), was told by the software firm Slack that she had been permanently barred from using their services for an undisclosed offense.
To show his support for the Libs of TikTok, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon shared a screenshot of the email his firm wrote to explain why they will not be doing business with Raichik.
Due to infractions of our Acceptable Usage Policy, we have suspended your workspace, lott-chat.slack.com, and are writing to inform you of this action. Slack reserves the right to immediately suspend or delete your account if you violate the terms of service or the Acceptable Usage Policy.
We have reversed the most recent $75 monthly charge that was applied to your credit card,” the email stated. If you’ve requested a refund, it should appear on your card within five to seven business days. If you’d like, we may send you an electronic file transfer of all the information saved in your Slack instance.
To the email, Dillon tweeted, “@SlackHQ has permanently suspended @libsoftiktok.” If your company’s focus is on protecting children, Slack is not interested in hearing from you.
Raichik took to the internet to explain why her account had been removed, stating, “@SlackHQ is furious that an account is striving to defend children’s innocence by teaching people about mutilation procedures, porn in schools, and unsuitable adult entertainment that is provided to youngsters.”
When asked for a remark, Raichik remained silent.
Thereafter, Dillon clarified the situation as follows: “When I tweeted that @SlackHQ had suspended Libs of TikTok, I got a reply from @asksalesforce claiming they were looking into it. They sounded like they may make the correct choice. Yet, they chose to remove this tweet rather than restore the account.
Slack’s decision comes just before Raichik releases “No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern,” her first novel for kids, next month.
In a statement, she explained that she felt it was time to “take the next step,” which was to “provide parents and children a tool that they can use to be able to recognize predatory conduct.” Youngster should be wary of any trusted adult or authority figure who advises them to conceal information from their parents, since this is a major red signal, as the book explains.
