At least 50 nurses who were employed by Northwestern Memorial Hospital have been fired. Sources connected to the staff say they were terminated for the unauthorized viewing of Jussie Smollett’s records from his emergency room visit the night of the attack.

Say it ain’t so! According to CBS Chicago, dozens of nurses were fired and escorted out of the hospital for viewing medical records attached to the former ‘Empire’ star. Claiming it was a “misunderstanding”, one nurse has stated she never accessed the chart but had her employment terminated last Tuesday.

The surgical nurse, only identified as ‘Susan’, alleges she was never interrogated or given an opportunity to explain, but insists she scrolled past it looking for someone else’s name. She was fired on the spot for the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) violation.

When asked to comment on the terminations of nearly 50 employees, a Northwestern Memorial Medicine spokesman said they are unable to provide a statement due to HIPAA restrictions and company policy.

“We Don’t Feel Safe”: Fort Worth Residents Demand Change Following Atatiana Jefferson’s Murder

“If you were awarded $150,000, would any of that money go to maybe retraining officers how to not pull triggers?” Citizens of Fort Worth, Texas arrived at the first city council meeting following the shooting of Atatiana Jefferson to demand change. The 28-year old Black woman was gunned down in her home by Fort Worth Police Officer Aaron Dean while caring for her 8-year old nephew.

Concerned residents are determined to have their voices heard and demand action from sitting officials. During the first city council meeting to take place since Atatiana’s death, Fort Worth City Hall was filled to capacity with residents looking for answers. Despite City officials conducting typical business before hearing residents speak, their outraged calls to action were not received. Meeting attendees who attempted to discuss their misgivings were escorted out by City Marshals. With fears of weak sentencing stoked by the outcome of Amber Guyger’s trial, protests have ensued in what one official calls a “Black state of emergency.”

Declaring the Dallas/Fort Worth area to be in a “Black state of emergency”, McKinney Councilman La’Shadion Shemwell has asked prospective Black travelers to refrain from visiting. Monday, LaShadion shared that Black and brown lives are in danger by visiting and he “cannot sit idly by” as war continues on Fort Worth’s citizens. Mayor George Fuller called the narrative dangerous. However, he still allowed Shemwell to read his proclamation which calls out the pattern and practice of discriminatory policing.

Cuba Gooding Jr Accused by 14 Women of Sexual Abuse

After being accused of misdemeanor sex abuse stemming from a reckless night at a Manhattan night club, Cuba Gooding Jr is facing 12 additional accusations of misconduct. The once reputable actor has entered his not guilty plea and will face fourteen women who claim they’ve experienced abuse at his hands.

Tuesday, Cuba Gooding Jr appeared in a Manhattan Supreme Court to answer for charges from an incident that occurred in June. A woman approached the NYPD after being groped by Gooding Jr on the dancefloor. Her call to action led the NYPD to open an investigation which has resulted in prosecutors indicting the actor on four misdemeanor counts. Prosecutors have evidence that Cuba Gooding Jr. has assaulted 12 additional women and plan to bring each complainant in to prove the actor’s malicious intent.

Despite the severity of the charges, Cuba Gooding Jr appeared to be unphased during the proceedings. The actor responded to the accusations in court with a confident not guilty plea and was then released to his legal team. Yet, a questionable statement made by his representation stood out for it’s comparisons to accusations waged against Presidential candidate and former VP Joe Biden. Referencing a handsy encounter with a fellow politician, the attorney Mark Jay Heller said the following:

“This indictment constitutes a distorted overreaction pandering to the current hypersensitive climate where innocent common-place gestures are now misperceived and mischaracterized as offensive as exemplified by the incredible condemnation of former Vice President Joseph Biden, who innocently touched a woman’s shoulder.”

As they exited the courthouse, fans expressed their support and reporters attempted to get a statement. However, Gooding Jr. and his lawyer refused to respond to any inquiries.
