Hospital Exec Who Called for Trump Supporters with Coronavirus to ‘Give Up Their Ventilators’ and Die is Fired
A Buffalo, New York hospital has fired one of their top executives after she posted on social media that she felt Trump supporters with Chinese coronavirus should “give up their ventilators” and die.
Laura Krolczyk, who formerly worked as Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s vice president for external affairs, was relieved of her position last week, according to the Buffalo News. Krolczyk had previously worked as a staffer for Hillary Clinton while she was an elected Senator in the Empire State.
“trump supporters need to pledge to give up their ventilators for someone else… and not go to the hospital,” she wrote in one Facebook outburst.
“they should barricade themselves in there and ride it out,” Krolczyk wrote about her desire for Republicans to gather in large numbers during the coronavirus panic.
“Take your “wow” and comprehend what your hero is saying,” Krolczyk wrote during a vitriolic exchange with a Trump supporter. “Your leader is saying YOU don’t need a ventilator. So don’t take one.”
“Also don’t cash your stimulus check. It’s all a hoax. Chew some ibuprofen and be on with your day,” she added.
Krolczyk’s objectionable social media posts can be seen here in their full context:
According to WGRZ-TV, the hospital released the following statement regarding their decision to terminate Krolczyk’s employment following her outburst:
This employee was terminated today [Saturday] after our Human Resources team concluded its investigation. We followed standard procedure, which required that we gather and verify relevant information before taking any disciplinary action.
Dr. Johnson and her team responded with swift and appropriate action. We have always been and continue to be a center serving everyone who needs us. That is core to our mission, our culture and the experience our patients and families can expect every day.
This behavior is not tolerated at Roswell Park. If any team members act in a way that does not accord with that commitment, we will take swift and appropriate action, just as we did in this instance.
Before losing her composure with her hateful social media posts, Krolczyk was considered a “person on the move” as she made her way up the corporate ladder as an empowered feminist woman.
“Krolczyk will be Roswell Park’s primary representative with New York state, leading the Institute’s interactions with the governor’s office, the Legislature, and state agencies. Prior to coming to Roswell Park in 2010, Krolczyk served as an aide to Sens. Hillary Clinton and Kirsten Gillibrand,” the Albany Business Review wrote about Krolczyk back in 2015.
Independent journalist Michael Caputo noted that Krolczyk was receiving a six-figure salary for her role as a hospital executive.
That substantial income has now dried up for Krolczyk, as liberals come to the realization that they can be punished for wrong-think on social media platforms as well.
