Erika Casher Wiki – Erika Casher Biography
Erika Casher is a registered nurse who has spoken out against mask mandates in schools at a Tennessee school board meeting. After being identified on social media, she was the subject of a social media firestorm as the woman caught on video laughing at a young man who was speaking about his grandmother’s death from COVID-19 at a Rutherford County school board meeting.
Keith Olbermann was one of those who identified the woman in the video as Erika Casher, writing on Twitter, “Hey @cigna, why is your employee Erika Casher laughing at this grieving young man who is ten times as smart and 10000 times as human as she is? And why is she still your employee? #BoycottCigna.” The video in question has been viewed millions of times.
Her age is unclear.
On September 7, 2021, Murfreesboro Holler in Tennessee shared a video of the woman being identified as Cashier sitting behind a young man who spoke at that meeting. “😤SHAMEFUL: When A RUTHERFORD COUNTY STUDENT tells the board his grandmother, a former Rutherford County Schools teacher, DIED OF COVID because someone wasn’t wearing a mask… anti-maskers behind him LAUGH and INTERRUPT HIM,” the caption read.

In the video, he said, “I’m worried about my family. If I get Covid, I will bring it to my family, and I talk to my grandparents a lot. They are higher risk than me, so I don’t want to give them COVID.” He added: “This time last year, my grandmother, who was a former teacher at the Rutherford County school system, died of COVID because someone wasn’t wearing a mask.”
The woman sitting behind him had a “Let Our Kids Smile” sign. She smiled and appeared to laugh at that point in the video briefly.
“This is going to continue if we don’t have a mask mandate. Contact tracing has been a big issue for students this year because we all know that we’re going to miss at least a week of school if we get contact traced. That’s a week of instruction, a week of teacher contact that we’re going to miss,” Knox continued. “This is an avoidable issue, and by not wearing masks in schools, it’s irresponsible. We’re killing people. This is not something we should be doing for the education of our students. Thank you,” he concluded. I will laugh at that point in the video briefly all,
As per an unverified tweet, Erica Casher was allegedly fired from her job at Cigna. “Just an update, an acquaintance that works with @Cigna has verified that #ErikaCasher was fired yesterday,” a social media user said. However, MEAWW cannot independently verify this piece of information.

When some users asked for proof, the user explained, “They will ignore the whole thing, @cigna is such a large company one person acting ignorant that is a cog in the wheel won’t get a mention from them until their stock plummets and they get backed in a corner. If it was a higher-up that had more value… another story.”
