On the 13th of march 2016, just a day after Donald Trump’s Chicago rally was canceled due to Black lives matter protesters and Bernie Sanders supporters(reportedly) crashing it, Twitter user Tiana McHenry sent out a tweet that read:
“Someone, anyone…. assassinate trump and his offspring. I don’t care if this tweet gets me on the fbi watch list I fucking hate that man”
The now deleted tweet received lots praises from people who shared a similar sentiment, and lots of backlash too. One person decided to message Christus Santa Rosa Health System where Tiana reportedly worked, to inform them about what their employee had posted online. He included an archived link of the tweet in question and asked them to “Contact and lecture her about her actions”:
Christus Santa Rosa Health System responded later and said they were looking into the matter:
The hospital made a Facebook post later on, clarifying that Tiana does not work for them, but for a third party vendor. They continued to state that the issue had been turned over to the third party vendor to settle:
In a final Facebook post, Christus Santa Rosa Health System stated that Tiana’s employers (Now revealed as “Amarak”), had suspended her from the workplace indefinitely, after receiving the complaints and were fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation. If it is found out that the tweets were sent out by her (She did send them), her employment would be terminated immediately.
This was just a formality by her employers to maintain an image of fairness and skepticism. For all intents and purposes, she will not be working there anymore.
Tiana herself seemed to have caught wind of what was going on, and deleted the tweet and subsequently her entire Twitter account. Visiting her profile just shows you a “That page does not exist” notification.
However it was too late, Someone had already created an archived version of her profile.
