A New Jersey chiropractor is facing heat over a sign 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 daughter to the Jersey City office of Dr. Kevin Julian before walking out over the sign.
“This sign does not mention Coronavirus or Covid 19, but instead 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 of course I supported this.”
The post sparked outrage on Paraison’s Facebook page.
“Time to revoke his license,” wrote Facebook user Sheila Porada.
Charisse Allen said, ““Uneffnbelievable!!!!!!!!”
Another woman, Renee Braithwaite, simply replied: “Wow.”
Julian declined to comment on Thursday when reached by NBC News.
