Taylor Lorenz was DM’ing KellyAnne Conway’s daughter. She is a disgrace to journalism.

Kellyanne Conway began by giving a bit of background on events that were taking place. Claudia Conway was doing what we all did as teenagers, rebelling. It was a pretty normal thing, until Taylor Lorenz showed up.
“Claudia was doing what a lot of teenagers do: pushing back on authority, mom and dad, posting TikToks and getting on Twitter, etc. What I don’t appreciate, and will never forgive or forget, are a bunch of adults direct messaging my 15-year-old daughter without even trying to reach easy-to-reach parents. It is outrageous. You can’t have a 15-year-old and your audience without a parent. She can’t get her ears pierced, go to an R-rated movie, drive, vote…”
As Conway tells the story and how she felt about it, cohost Joy Behar can be heard tsk-tsking and saying, “That’s terrible.”
An interesting response from Behar, because that is just the kind of wretched behavior she would be egging on. But bullies tend to back down in person.
Conway replied to Behar’s reaction,
“It’s terrible, it’s unforgivable, Joy. And it was certainly started with this Peter Pan Taylor Lorenz at the New York Times, but she wasn’t alone. I’ve seen the direct messages, people just contacting my daughter. I would never contact your children. By the way, are we supposed to feel better if it were a 35-year-old man contacting Claudia at 1 a.m. and promise her fame, fortune, attention?”
The Peter Pan reference seems to refer to Lorenz’s job being “reporting” on children’s social media trends, while being single and childless in her 40’s.
Kellyanne Conway called out "Peter Pan" Taylor Lorenz and the other creepy journalists that were secretly messaging her 17-year-old daughter behind her back and "promising her fame, fortune, attention"
Joy Behar surprisingly agreed with her. pic.twitter.com/3pLTZD7O5V
