“the mother of a patient under his care had complained”
The school says they dismissed him over performance issues. Maybe he should have focused more on his official duties.

Trump Twitter lawsuit ‘winner’ officially let go from Vanderbilt U. Medical Center
One of the plaintiffs in the President Trump Twitter “block” case has been let go from his gig at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Eugene Gu had been on paid leave since posting a picture on Twitter of himself kneeling with a raised fist — in protest against “white supremacy” — and the mother of a patient under his care had complained.
According to The (Duke) Chronicle, the VUMC cited “performance issues” in its decision not renew Gu’s contract.
A letter to Gu from VUMC General Counsel Michael Regier cites his “lack of sufficient improvement in performance and conduct in key areas” and notes “the most ‘significant areas of concern were ‘patient care, communication, and medical knowledge.’”
Gu alleges he dealt with a hostile work environment after VUMC “pinned” a tweet of its response to The Chronicle’s investigation into the kneeling incident.
