A New Jersey chiropractic physician is facing heat over a sign in his workplace that describes COVID-19 as “the Chinese Virus.”
Annesia Paraison said in a Facebook post on Tuesday that she brought her child to the Jersey City office of Dr. Kevin Julian prior to walking out over the sign.
“This sign does not mention Coronavirus or Covid 19, however rather calls it the Chinese Virus,” Paraison wrote.
“THIS IS BLATANT RACISM. My daughter did not have to think about it, she was ready to leave and naturally I supported this.”
The post triggered outrage on Paraison's Facebook page.
“Time to revoke his license,” wrote Facebook user Sheila Porada.
Charisse Allen stated, “”Uneffnbelievable!!!!!!!!”
Another female, Renee Braithwaite, simply responded: “Wow.”
Julian declined to talk about Thursday when reached by NBC News.
