A New Jersey chiropractic specialist is dealing with heat over a sign in his office that refers to COVID-19 as “the Chinese Virus.”
Annesia Paraison stated in a Facebook post on Tuesday that she brought her daughter to the Jersey City office of Dr. Kevin Julian prior to going 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 daughter did not have to consider it, she was prepared to leave and of course I supported this.”
The post triggered outrage on Paraison's Facebook page.
“Time to revoke his license,” composed Facebook user Sheila Porada.
Charisse Allen said, “”Uneffnbelievable!!!!!!!!”
Another lady, Renee Braithwaite, simply replied: “Wow.”
Julian declined to discuss Thursday when reached by NBC News.
