A registered behavioral health technician for Centria Healthcare in Saginaw, Michigan was fired Thursday after Internet sleuths "canceled" him for making disparaging remarks about Breonna Taylor.
Benjamin Holthaus is the latest casualty of social media's "cancel culture.” Internet sleuths tracked him down and doxxed him after he wrote an offensive post saying Taylor was not an emergency medical technician and accused her of being "deep in the drug game".
Taylor was shot multiple times in her bed by three plainclothes officers who executed a no-knock warrant at her home in the early morning hours. They were searching for a drug suspect who was already in police custody.
One of the officers was fired but the other two are still on active duty.
Instagram blogger @GossipoftheCity doxxed Holthaus (published his employee's name and phone number) and urged her followers to contact his employer, Centria Autism, who confirmed Holthuas was no longer employed there on Thursday.
"Thank you for sharing this information with us as that type of behavior does not align with our mission or values.
We were informed of this post last week and we have confirmed with our HR Department that this individual is not a current employee. We have requested removal of their association with our organization on social media through each platform."
