Update: 1:45pm Central: @antwiththecuts has now made their Instagram profile private
Q is using its platform in 4 separate posts accusing two instagram users of arson in the Clackmas County Oregon region. An image with the apparent tongue-in-cheek statement “heading back out to clack and estacada to set some fires!!!” set off its own wildfire in the chaotic and misinformation laden conspiracy land of QAnon. Several Q vigilantes have taken to social media to harass, threaten and dox the owners of these Instagram accounts.
Instagram accounts @antwiththecuts and @antidote503 regularly post protest messages, yet there is nothing to indicate that the men in these accounts actually commit arson. On the contrary, all posts in each account referring to the wildfires share messages of volunteerism and assistance.
QAnon followers have rushed to social media to threaten, harass, and dox the men as a result of Q’s incendiary assault. One of the accounts has gone private shortly after receiving harassing remarks in the comments.
The accounts, @antwiththecuts and @antidote503 frequently reference that they are providing “mutual aid” with many photos and videos socializing their efforts in the fire scarred region. In contrast, Q and its followers have concluded without evidence that these men are arsonists, though both can be seen several times throughout the last 3 days being questioned and NOT detained by law enforcement. Several Q followers in the comments harass, threaten and dox the owners of these Instagram accounts.
