Naval Hospital Staffers Fired for Calling Black Baby "Mini Satan" on Social

A U.S. naval hospital in Florida moved promptly to fire an employee who recently posted to social media with disturbing photographs of her mishandling and denigrating newborn infants. The incident has sparked an outcry, particularly from within the African American community, as the babies mistreated by the nurse - who is a White woman - happen to be Black.

In the dancing flick, the child's arms are held up and manipulated so as to make dance moves as 50 Cent's "In Da Club" plays in the background. In another photo, the nurse is holding a middle finger up before the baby's face. “How I currently feel about these ‘mini Satans,’” the photo's caption reads. The post has thus far received 145,000 reactions and been shared by over 340,000 accounts.

In a statement that was also issued through Facebook, a Naval Hospital Jacksonville spokesperson said the visuals were “outrageous, unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and cannot be tolerated.” The statement went on to confirm that the employees involved have been identified, removed, and "will be handled by the legal system and military justice."
