Two Corpsmen at a naval hospital in Jacksonville, Florida were removed from duty and reassigned after they recorded Snapchat videos of black babies dancing to rap music. The newborns in the video were just hours old, according to Fox 30.
One Corpsman flipped her middle finger in an image of a black baby with the caption: "How I currently feel about these mini Satans."
In a second photo, a woman holds a newborn baby by both arms and makes the child dance to 50 Cent's hit rap song "In Da Club".
The person recording the unprofessional scene can be heard saying "we're going to hell".
The images and videos were taken from Snapchat and posted on Facebook.com, where they were shared by hundreds of thousands of people before the hospital administration was notified.
It is a violation of hospital policy to record or photograph patients without authorization or permission.
The Navy Hospital in Jacksonville issued a statement on Monday.
"We are aware of a video / photo posted online. It's outrageous, unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and cannot be tolerated," the statement reads. "We have identified the staff members involved. They have been removed from patient care and they will be handled by the legal system and military justice."
The hospital has notified the parents of the newborns in the photos/videos.
Among the irate Facebook users was one nurse from Tennessee, who wrote: "They need to have their nursing license revoked. I am totally disgusted. How juvenile. Grow up."
