An Indiana nurse has lost her job after suggesting on Twitter that the sons of white women “be sacrificed to the wolves,” hospital officials said.
The offensive tweet, posted from an account named Night Nurse, had been linked to an employee named Taiyesha Baker.
“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son,” the since-deleted post read. “Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, and domestic violence all-star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves B-tch.”
Baker was never officially identified, however, a spokesman for IU Health confirmed that Baker worked for the health care system when the tweet was posted.
“IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee,” IU Health spokesman Jason Fechner told the newspaper. “Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work for Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”
Baker, according to state records, was licensed as a registered nurse on Oct. 30 and claimed to have worked in pediatrics, according to deleted social media posts. But Fechner said that she joined the health care system less than a month ago.
“She was still going through orientation and wasn’t caring for patients,” Fechner said in an email. “She had no disciplinary issues prior to this matter.”
Baker’s account — @tai_fieri — was deleted and has apparently been recreated by a new user who posted a series of tweets on Saturday, including a likeness of Pepe the Frog as President Donald Trump.
