According to Miss. Obaid it was a “Harassment” case and she said, “My recent tweets about a doctor’s behavior have drawn much comment and controversy.

“The conversation has unfortunately steered far from the safety of women, unchecked unethical practices and harassment.

“Some of the words I used in anger have disappointed people and I agree that they were poorly chosen in a time of heated emotion.

“My words and heated sentiment seem to have drawn away the real issue at hand.”

“Women are afraid to voice issues of harassment and unethical behavior because they may be ignored or because we drown out their voices”, she added, “You may disagree with the way I called out the doctor’s behavior, debate the boundaries of social media with the medical profession and any form and tone of expression but unfortunately, what happened was a breach  of trust and a severe lack of a professional code of conduct that led to a woman feeling violated and harassed.

“And on that, I will not stay silent.”
