Indiana Nurse Under Investigation for Tweets about Killing White Babies

UPDATE (11/26/17 2:33 p.m. PST): Here is a statement from the hospital:

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

An Indiana University Health nurse is under fire for racist tweets about killing white babies.

Online Redditors and Twitter users tracked nurse Taiyesha Baker to Riley Children's Health, an affiliate of Indiana University Health in Indianapolis. PJ Media reached out to the hospital and received this statement:

We are 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.

When asked which department Baker works in, the hospital declined to answer. Baker's Twitter feed was littered with anti-white sentiments. Redditors compiled a sampling here. 

Baker's Twitter account has since been deleted. This comes at a time when Twitter claims they are cracking down on racist content.
