A teacher’s aide named Jane Allen, at Chestatee Elementary in Gainesville, Atlanta, has been fired for repeatedly calling Michelle Obama a “gorilla.”
In her recent post, Allen said:
“This poor Gorilla, how is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore.”
On an August article about Obama being one of the most admired women in the world, Allen said,
“I admire a gorilla more that I admire her. (Wait I forgot, she is a gorilla)!”
Her Facebook page has now been disabled. Social media users said that her repeated posts about the First Lady were extremely racist. The outcry eventually led to her bosses relieving her of her duties yesterday.
