Billionaire Elon Musk applauded Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify for refusing to bend the knee to leftist mobs that tried to bully the corporation into banning the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok from its online storefront.
CEO Tobi Lutke said Shopify would not kick Libs of Tik Tok off its platform because it had not violated any company policy. The account, run by Chaya Raichik, mocks and exposes leftists by reposting videos and other content they share on social media.
Lutke said his company will not cave to any “bad faith narrative” being frivolously promoted by the corporate media to target certain groups.
“Shopify has a published acceptable use policy and a principled process to apply it,” the Canadian billionaire tweeted on Saturday. “Pressure groups on all sides try to influence it sometimes and CBC needs to see through that, not amplify bad faith narrative.”
The Shopify founder was responding to a Twitter rant by left-wing activist Nandini Jammi, who heads an advertising watchdog that targets conservatives, in which she shared an article from Canada’s CBC about the Libs of Tik Tok decision.

In her tirade, Jammi — whose claim to fame is trying to bankrupt Breitbart and Fox News by bullying its advertisers — disingenuously accused Lutke of “stepping in personally to protect Shopify accounts linked to terrorism & violence.”
Five years ago, I co-founded the campaign to make Breitbart unprofitable. They lost 90% of their ad revenues in 3 months. Today, we’re launching the campaign to take on Fox News — and we know exactly how to get the job done. cc @mediagazerhttps://t.co/3ie3QRwIsd
The tweet implied that Libs of Tik Tok was linked to “terrorism and violence.”
The account has been repeatedly targeted because it illuminates and criticizes the left’s toxic glorification of transgenderism, lionization of sex-change surgery for children and normalization of drag queen story hours for toddlers.
“Drag queen story hour” a nonprofit which receives tax dollars to go into schools and public libraries to teach kids about drag- admits that they use drag to introduce kids to queerness.
The massive immune response we are seeing from Left-wing media and Big Tech to @elonmusk‘s commitment to free speech on Twitter should frighten you. It has revealed their rabid obsession for complete narrative control.
