Taiyesha Baker was an employee of IU at the hospital. According to CBS, the IU system did not confirm whether Baker worked with newborns at the hospital. She received her nurse's license on October 30th, which is valid until Oct. 31st, 2019. There have been several protests and high ranking officials calling for her to be fired because of the "dangerous" comments she made. However some people have said she was attempting to make a broader point.

Many speculate that Baker's initial comments were in response to the recent mass shootings carried out in Las Vegas, Nevada, Rancho Tehama, California, and Sutherland Springs, Texas, which were all carried out by white men.
