Its official blood service account on Friday expertly destroyed a tweeter who posted a vile comment in response to an appeal for more black blood donors to help patients with sickle cell anemia.
The @GiveBloodNHS account issued its appeal back in June:
Black people with sickle cell disease urgently need black donors. https://t.co/BiFaOY5YnO— GiveBlood NHS (@GiveBloodNHS) June 19, 2017
The inherited disease causes patients’ red blood cells to alter shape in ways that block the flow of blood and oxygen. It disproportionately affects black people.
“If we deport all blacks, this will stop being an issue.”
The tweet has since vanished following the suspension of the person’s account.
But the @GiveBloodNHS account’s fierce responses live on:
OR.. we could just deport you. https://t.co/pjldJ0WBT7— GiveBlood NHS (@GiveBloodNHS) October 12, 2017
We would not welcome you as a blood donor so please do not try to attend one of our sessions.— GiveBlood NHS (@GiveBloodNHS) October 13, 2017
The National Health Service clapback went down well with other Twitter users and was going viral, with some people suggesting it inspired them to donate blood.
