A racist teaching assistant has been fired over her comments about Michelle Obama.
Jane Wood Allen from Georgia posted: "This poor gorilla. How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore? She needs to focus on getting a total makeover (especially the hair) instead of planning vacations. She is a disgrace to America!'"
She was fired from her role as a teacher's aide at Chestatee Elementary School on Monday after the school was made aware of her previous postings. She has reportedly been in the job for 27 years.
In a post to its Facebook page, the school wrote: "Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district. We are committed to ongoing staff training on the acceptance of all individuals." The post has been shared more than 1,700 times and has been flooded with comments, most demanding the removal of the teacher.
The post isn't the first time she's spewed race hate at the First Lady, either. According to CBS46, in a previous post, she wrote: "'I admire a gorilla more that I admire her. (Wait I forgot, she is a gorilla)! She is the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Oh sorry, I meant gorilla not First Lady)!" What an absolute horror.
She has also previously posted telling a Muslim woman she isn't welcome in the US.
