A nurse has been removed from her position at Indiana University Health in the US after allegedly posting a racist tweet about white mothers.

The tweet allegedly sent by Taiyesha Baker called on white mothers to sacrifice their sons to wolves and made a series of bizarre claims.

A purported copy of the tweet remains online, attributed to an account with the handle @tai_fieri. However there is no trace of the message on the account now.

The tweet reads: "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****."

Indiana University Health, one of the largest hospital companies in America, launched an investigation into Baker in light of the message, according to Fox News.

Yesterday (November 26) a spokesperson said: "A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health."

IUH refused to say where Baker worked, however it did admit that she is a registered nurse.

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.”
