A New Jersey chiropractic practitioner is facing heat over a check in his office that refers to COVID-19 as “the Chinese Virus.”
Annesia Paraison said in a Facebook post on Tuesday that she brought her child to the Jersey City workplace of Dr. Kevin Julian before walking out over the indication.
“This indication does not discuss Coronavirus or Covid 19, but rather calls it the Chinese Virus,” Paraison wrote.
“THIS IS BLATANT RACISM. My child did not have to consider it, she was all set to leave and naturally I supported this.”
The post triggered outrage on Paraison's Facebook page.
“Time to withdraw his license,” composed Facebook user Sheila Porada.
Charisse Allen said, “”Uneffnbelievable!!!!!!!!”
Another woman, Renee Braithwaite, merely replied: “Wow.”
Julian declined to discuss Thursday when reached by NBC News.
