A nurse who works in the Indiana healthcare system was recently removed from her position at Methodist Hospital after she reportedly posted a horrifying Twitter rant that called for white baby boys to be "sacrificed to the wolves" because of their race.
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.

Baker recently protested an appearance of conservative speaker Charles Murray at Indiana University. The protests were poking fun at the god-awful Kendall Jenner/Pepsi commercial, which helped bring awareness to their demonstration.
Baker's recent comments have understandably caused a ton of outrage on social media over the Thanksgiving weekend.
An especially vocal demographic are Donald Trump supporters.
She is part of the 10% of #AMERICA that does tbeir best to ruin life for 90 % of #AMERICA that is.....NOT......#RACIST!! SHE IS A FU☆☆ING 🐖..... should be ashamed of herself but she sounds too STUPID to realize shes a #racebaiter ( Night Nurse@tai_fieri ) #RACIST 🐷🐖🐽— E TRAIN SPORTS (@EricLevitsky) November 26, 2017
And people who dislike "liberals."
Typical libtard. Every single "fact" in the post is completely made up and false, she is the epitome of what she is accusing white people of being, and she actually thinks the things she is saying is going to help her cause . Here folks is a good glimpse into the minds of libs— Thomas Glass (@TWG1911) November 26, 2017
Along with people who replied with some pretty racist comments of their own.
Too bad you didn’t die at birth. There would be one less black life that matter. You need to be put in your place. Where did you get your nursing degree? It needs to be revoked— Jayne DePaulis (@JayneDepaulis) November 26, 2017
Even though Baker's twitter account was deleted, someone created a new account with the same handle and began posting new tweets.
They also began tweeting under Baker's profile.
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.
