A hospital in Cleveland reportedly fired a resident after it was discovered she had been sharing anti-Semitic comments on social media.
Cleveland.com reported on Sunday that the Cleveland Clinic confirmed that Lara Kollab is no longer working with the organization after having only worked as a supervised resident with the clinic from July to September last year.
“She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the organization also said in a statement on Sunday.
According to Times of Israel, Kollab had a history of making anti-Semitic comments on social media for years, dating back to 2011.
Kollab had reportedly called for violence against Jews in several tweets, in which she also referred to Jews as "dogs" and compared Israel to the Nazi regime.
Kollab could also be seen saying she would “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” using the Arabic word for Jews, in a screenshot of a tweet made in 2012 shared by the publication.
According to Times of Israel, Kollab’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts have since been deactivated.
Kollab’s medical license, which was issued in Ohio in July 2018, reportedly remains active, however, and expires in June 2021.
