Indiana Nurse Under Investigation for Tweets about Killing White Babies

Monday, 27 Nov, 2017

"Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be terrorist, rapist, racist, killer and domestic violence all-star", Taiyesha Baker wrote on Twitter.

IU Health is investigating a controversial post made by a nurse that has attracted a social media firestorm.

A spokesman confirmed with FOX59 after that statement was released that Baker was a registered nurse, but declined to comment on which specific hospital employed her. Her nursing license was issued on October 30.

Baker claimed to work in pediatrics in previously deleted tweets. Reports are unclear as to whether Baker was sacked or left the hospital of her own accord, and there is no direct statement as yet regarding the state of her departure.

One user also reached out to Twitter Support and asked them to block Baker's tweet as it promoted hate.

'Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves.

The original Twitter account was deleted, but someone else recreated it under the same name with a cartoon image and several tweets pertaining to the incident. "Shameful that the hospital would allow her to work there and invite lawsuits if any patients treated by her die", he said. That employee does not and has not worked for Riley Children's Hospital.

This is not the first time when a black person has blamed white people for attacks and assaults that took place in the recent years.

During an interview with Democracy Now! on 6 November, George Ciccariello-Maher, a Drexel University professor, questioned why mass shootings in the United States are nearly always carried out by white men.
