An Indiana nurse was on some advanced-level Hotepery when she reportedly tweeted, “Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves Bitch.”

Ouch. Didn’t take long for the hospital to find and identify Taiyesha Baker, considering that her Twitter profile included her photo, and her Twitter handle was “night nurse.”

It also didn’t take long for an internal investigation by Baker’s employers, Indiana University Health, to find that this wasn’t Baker’s first highly charged and racially insensitive tweet, so they told her to kick rocks.


“A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health,” read a statement released by IU Health, IndyStar reports.

IU Health confirmed that Baker was a registered nurse, but would not confirm for which hospital she worked, WXIN-TV reports.


Never go full Hotep.
