Jewish Tunnels Tweet

Richard Strocher came to wider public attention in January 2024 for a series of posts about hearing "digging" and "Yiddish" underneath the floor of his supposed apartment in New York City.[2]

Following the viral spread of Strocher's posts, journalist Taylor Lorenz posted a TikTok (seen below) saying he was "completely full of shit."[4]

In her video, Lorenz described an investigative reporting process that found Strocher reportedly lied in his bio about being employed by Fox News, was a noted Groyper account, did not live in Crown Heights in New York City and that the screenshots showed "signs of manipulation." Lorenz's TikTok video proceeded to garner over 71,000 views, 6,600 likes and 200 comments in two months.

In the bio of his account (seen below) he claims to be associated with Fox News and The Blaze, however, there is no record of him at either media company.

Many others have expressed doubt about whether Strocher was a real person, with some like X user @Joyboy21st speculating that Strocher's profile picture looked like an AI art image (seen below).[7] In the replies, commenters pointed to the strange arrangement of the stars on the American flag over Strocher's shoulder as evidence the image was plausibly AI-generated.

Richard Strocher Jewish Tunnels Vindication Post

Richard Strocher Jewish Tunnels Vindication Post refers to a viral post on X / Twitter in early January 2024 that was made by a right-wing humorist troll posting under the name Richard Strocher, which claimed that he heard Yiddish spoken underneath his home in New York City in the weeks prior to the uncovering of the Chabad Synagogue Tunnels. Many online posted that he was vindicated or spread screenshots of the tweet as if it were real, but reporting by Taylor Lorenz and an investigation of the posts in the following days indicated that Strocher likely neither lived in New York nor had made the posts about hearing Jews underneath his home.
