TikToker encouraged viewers to troll anti-abortion lawmakers about Venmo

The leaked Supreme Court draft suggesting the Court of Justice Roe v. Wade’s move to overturn the legal decision protecting abortion has set off a chain reaction for various forms of pro-choice advocacy.

On May 7th, @thejackreichert posted a TikTok about how he got over 257 people to demand cash from Madison Cawthorn for his “crimes against women.”

The TikTok is a sequel to an earlier video in which Jack and his friends joke about following women home to give them 12% of their salary. At the end of the video, the three friends pose and tell Venmo to request their manager, Madison Cawthorn, listing the username of the congressman’s personal Venmo account in the video.

Madison Cawthrone is a Republican congressman from North Carolina known for his claims that the 2020 election was fraudulent, his reverent support for Trump, and the sexual assault allegations leveled at him. Reichert claims in the video, “Madison Cawthorn is a Republican congresswoman who is homophobic, has committed sexual assault and is blatantly misogynistic.”

The video, in which Reichert shares the Venmo usernames for notable anti-abortion lawmakers like Benjamin Sasse and Matt Gaetz, has already garnered over 79,000 views.

“I’m just doing the Lord’s work,” read one user’s comment.

Another commenter says, “This is my new favorite mobile game, way better than Candy Crush.”

“Direct action in 2022! Love to see it,” wrote another.

Some commenters on TikTok suggested that this trolling should not only be aimed at Cawthorn, but also at Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito, who drafted the Roe v. Wade is responsible, which was leaked earlier this week.

One user asked “Can you get the next one from Samuel Alito?” asking the creator for his Venmo handle. Jack replied, “I couldn’t find many handles because the majority of members of Congress are so old they don’t know how phones work.”

The Daily Dot reached out to Reichert for comment on this video, but received no immediate response.
