Singer T-Boz lashed out at medics who responded after she suffered a sickle cell crisis recently.
According to TheJasmineBrand, the 50-year-old TLC legend took to social media this week to vent her frustration after encountering rude first responders.
"I AM TIRED OF THESE SORRY A– SO CALLED 1st RESPONDERS WHO REALLY DON'T HV A PASSION 4 THEIR JOB OR PEOPLE! PLAYING THE U NEED ME POSITION! HAVING ATTITUDES & NOT DOING THE JOB YOU CHOSE AS A CAREER! I SWEAR THEY GOT ONE MORE TIME & IM SLAPPING THE S— OUT SOMEBODY."
After a follower urged her to contact a patient care advocate, T-Boz wrote:
"I'm just venting and I know because I've been dealing with these idiots for 50yrs now since birth and we ALWAYS HV ISSUES TRUST."
"They automatically treat you like your [sic] uneducated and assume you have no knowledge."
T-Boz, real name Tionne Watkins, has been in and out of hospitals all her life due to painful sickle cell attacks that occur spontaneously without warning.
Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder that causes the oxygen-carrying red blood cells to become rigid, deform and clump together in blood vessels, causing extreme pain in joints and extremities.
