In today's world, people believe racism is wrong. That is, unless you think white people are the scourge of existence.

Taiyesha F. Baker allegedly opened up on Twitter recently and let loose her thoughts about white people. The real trouble started when it became known that Ms. Baker was a registered nurse.

One tweet in particular landed her in the hot seat:

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. B***h.

The Reddit community stumbled upon the tweets and found out she was a nurse in the Indiana University Health system. Shortly thereafter, the tweet was deleted, and the public was made aware Ms. Baker was no longer an employee there.

An IU Health spokesman made a statement about the situation Saturday, per Fox 59:

We are aware of the situation. Our Human Resources Department is investigating this issue and will take appropriate action.

A further update was released shedding more light on what had transpired:

IU Health 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. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.

And then on Sunday, another update regarding the situation was provided:

A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.

Ms. Baker has received a lot of attention on Twitter ever since her tweets went viral:

However, Ms. Baker now alleges her account was hacked:

She even chose Kim Kardashian as her lifeline:

IU offered one more update stating Ms. Baker was still in the training phase of her employment, per the New York Post: “She was still going through orientation and wasn’t caring for patients. She had no disciplinary issues prior to this matter."

The internet can be a dangerous place now. One wrong tweet can ruin a career. Even if your account is hacked, it can cause serious problems.

Please take the proper precautions and safeguard all your social media accounts.
