According to the Indy Star, Indiana University Health (IU Health) registered nurse Taiyesha Baker chose to speak her piece about white boys and men via Twitter, and it may have cost her her job.

An Indiana nurse sparked outrage after she tweeted that white women raise sons who tend to turn into "killers", "rapists" and "terrorists" when they grow up. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, and domestic violence all star. It goes on to say that sons of "white women" should be "sacrificed to wolves".

"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.

Baker's account has been deleted, but another Twitter user posted a screenshot of several of her tweets that she previously posted. "We are aware of the situation", the statement began. He said human resources is investigating and will take appropriate action based on what it finds.

The troubling post first appeared on the Twitter account @tai_fieri, but was deleted soon after.

The company added "our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts" and whilst the investigation continues the employee "will have no access to patient care". The system confirmed the newly hired employee no longer worked for IU Health Sunday.

IU Health did not specifically name Baker, however. "Who need's [sic] a job anyway when you can have worldwide hatred?"

Fox 59 News, however, in an editor's note said, "That's inaccurate as details around the decision are not known at this time".

Public records show that Baker was issued a nursing license in October and it doesn't expire until 2019.
