(Daily Wire) Multiple political commentators and influential figures expressed concern after Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro revealed his findings on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at work in medicine.

In a thread posted to X on Monday, Shapiro dove into how some medical schools and doctors have pushed DEI in an effort to recruit more minority surgeons and stop hiring so many “walls of white men,” especially after the death of George Floyd and the ensuing riots in the summer of 2020. The Daily Wire editor emeritus said that his findings even show how some “top hospitals are abandoning key metrics when hiring surgeons.”


“It’s bad enough when teachers or government bureaucrats talk like this, but valuing intersectionality over merit can literally mean life or death in surgery,” Shapiro said.

The thread has been viewed over three million times and was quickly reposted by over a thousand people, including billionaire Tesla and X owner Elon Musk, conservative broadcaster and news analyst Mark Levin, and former ESPN anchor Sage Steele.

“DEI puts the lives of your loved ones at risk,” said Musk.

Steele — who sued ESPN alleging the network retaliated against her for making negative comments about the COVID vaccine — added, “The last sentence in the final tweet of this must-read thread should scare all of us: ‘Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US’ … yet these universities & hospitals are more concerned about DEI than hiring the most qualified person for the job??!!”

“MUST READ — the destruction of our medical system by the Democrat bigots and racists is underway,” Levin wrote.

Dave Rubin said he wasn’t surprised by the revelations in Shapiro’s thread, even though it should shock people.

“I’d say this thread is insane, but it’s actually obvious,” he wrote. “DEI will lead many people to DIE. Some intentionally …”

Shapiro began his thread by discussing Kychelle Del Rosario, a Wake Forest medical student who is getting ready to graduate from the school and potentially start a career in the medical field. Del Rosario made headlines in 2022 after she injured a patient who laughed at her “She/Her” pronoun pin. The Wake Forest medical student posted about her actions on social media, seemingly joking about missing the vein of the patient who made fun of her pin.

Del Rosario was defended by fellow Wake Forest medical student Ewen Liu who said the jab was an accident, but it “seemed ‘karma-tic.’” Shapiro said that he has learned Liu was recently hired by UPenn Health where she focuses on “substance use disorder, LGBTQ+ health, community medicine.”

“Both UPenn and Liu’s medical school, Wake Forest, have attempted to hide Liu’s hiring,” Shapiro wrote. “Wake Forest didn’t list Liu’s hospital in graduation materials, and UPenn doesn’t list Liu’s medical school on its website.”

Later in the thread, Shapiro shows video of award-winning Duke surgical resident Vignesh Raman discussing his goal to reduce the number of white men in surgery after the events surrounding George Floyd’s death “collectively galvanized the consciousness of Duke University and certainly our department to try to do something, and recognizing there’s like centuries-long history of racism and slavery in which Duke University essentially was founded [on].”
