Nurse Who Posted A Racist Tweet No Longer At Hospital

IU Health says a nurse tied to a series of troubling social media posts is no longer employed with their hospitals.

The tweet claimed that every white mother, "raises a detriment to society when they raise a son".

A pediatric nurse in IN who tweeted that white women tend to raise terrorists, rapists and racists is "no longer" working at her hospital, it has emerged.

"As a society, can we stop thinking the first amendment means we can't get fired for posting stupid stuff?"

An Indiana nurse is out of a job after a racially charged tweet about white women and their sons sparked a firestorm on social media. "Our Human Resources Department is investigating this issue and will take appropriate action". A spokesman with IU Health declined to say which specific hospital Baker worked at, but said it was not Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

Though in their statement IU Health denied that Baker work at Riley Hospital for Children, the Philadelphia Globe later tweeted that Baker did work there.

The account's Twitter handle is @tai_fieri and was linked back to Baker.

It added, "Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts". One media outlet revealed that public nursing license records show that Baker was most recently issued a nursing license on October 30 and that it expires on October 31, 2019.

A Saturday statement by IU Health read that it 'is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee.

Fox 59 News, however, in an editor's note said, "That's inaccurate as details around the decision are not known at this time".

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

The hospital, however, did not specify the clinic where Baker was working.
