Instagram suspends Libs of TikTok as Big Tech, media continue targeting conservative internet sensation


Internet sensation Libs of TikTok, which often shares videos of left-wing individuals making eyebrow-raising comments, has been suspended from Instagram as the media and Big Tech’s war on the account continues.

Libs of TikTok has also been repeatedly suspended by social media giant Twitter, where it has 1.2 million followers, and the account holder has also been doxxed by the Washington Post. It appears Instagram is the latest juggernaut to find an issue with the popular social media personality.
