Indiana University fires tweeting 'night nurse' for insulting white women

An Indiana nurse is under investigation after claiming white women raise sons that tend to be "killers, 'rapists" and 'terrorists'.

Baker, who was reportedly tweeting under the name "Night Nurse", launched an obscene tirade against the mothers of white baby boys as well as the infants themselves. Spokesman Jason Fechner would not confirm that Baker was sacked from IU Health, citing the healthcare provider's policy of employee information.

IN officials said that they were investigating this nurse for several racist posts on her social media account this weekend, and identified that her name was Taiyesha Baker.

A spokesmen for IU Health released the following statement to Fox 59 on Sunday afternoon.

A controversial Tweet allegedly posted Friday by a nurse at Indiana University Health has sparked an internal investigation.

Later on November 25, IU Health released another statement. 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.




Ms. Baker's Twitter account has been deleted and Twitter trolls have since repurposed her handle to criticize her.

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.

'Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts.

Taiyesha Baker had been employed at IU Health when she wrote that 'Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to wolves at birth'.

Baker could not immediately be reached Monday for comment. "Shameful that the hospital would allow her to work there and invite lawsuits if any patients treated by her die", he said.

According to public records, Baker's most recent nursing license went into effect on October 30 and expires October 31, 2019.
