Wake Forest! Where you'll use our pronouns, or we'll stab you," wrote a user on Twitter.
Another user shared, "Kychelle Del Rosario, fourth-year student at @wakeforestmed purposefully injured a patient and bragged about it on social media in retaliation for a joke. @wakeforestmed refuses to take disciplinary action. #WokeForest #Abuse #Ethics"
"The Univ. of MN medical school expelled Daniel Michelson for defacing a George Floyd mural. How will Wake Forest medical school handle the case of Kychelle Del Rosario who gave her patient an extra needlestick for teasing her about her use of pronouns?" questioned another Twitter user.
