Police officials in Massachusetts continue investigating a bomb threat at Boston Children's Hospital since Tuesday. For weeks, right-wing troll Chaya Raichik, who runs the transphobic Libs of TikTok Twitter account, has aimed her followers at the hospital, falsely claiming that inside, doctors are mutilating children under the guise of gender-affirming care.
Somebody made a threatening phone call to the hospital at 8 p.m., but no bombs were found, according to the Boston Police Department, Boston's NBC affiliate WBTS reports.Before 10 p.m., local Boston NBC reporter Oscar Margáin tweeted a video from the scene showing a significant police response at the hospital.
Raichik frequently engages in stochastic terrorism and has been tweeting false and misleading information about the hospital's services.
For example, she claims that children inside the facility are subjected to hysterectomies, mastectomies, and other genital surgery.
