Chaya Raichik, known for her far-right views on the Libs of TikTok social media account, has been appointed to the Oklahoma Library Media Advisory Committee. Raichik’s Libs of TikTok has over 3 million followers on platforms like X and Instagram. Its content often contains discriminatory language and targets LGBTQ+ individuals, drag queens, and their employers, criticizing efforts for diversity, inclusion, and equity. Not just that, this account has also been linked to bomb threats at various schools, libraries, and hospitals nationwide including bomb threats against a school library in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year. Raichik’s eligibility for the educational role is being questioned by many given her professional background and bigotry approach.
