A teacher in Georgia was fired on Monday after her school discovered she had written a post on Facebook in which she called Michelle Obama a “gorilla.”
According to Daily Caller, Jane Wood Allen was a teacher’s aide at Chestatee Elementary School before she shared an article about Michelle Obama and called the first lady a “poor gorilla.”
“Effective Monday, Oct. 3, Jane Wood Allen has been relieved from duty and is no longer an employee of Forsyth County Schools. Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district,” read a Facebook post by the school system.
Allen’s hatred for Michelle did not stop there. She also slammed her for her “luxurious vacations” and the first lady’s looks, stating that she “needs to focus on getting a total make-over (especially the hair).”
“I admire a gorilla more than I admire her. (Wait, I forgot. She is a gorilla)! If she was a real First Lady, she would not have used and abused her title, by thinking that she is entitled to go on all the trips that she takes every other day. But most of all wasted all of our tax payers money. She is the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Or sorry, I meant gorilla, not First Lady)!” another post read, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Allen’s Facebook page has since been deactivated.
“We are committed to ongoing staff training on the acceptance of all individuals. As this is a personnel matter, the district will provide no further comment,” the Forsyth County’s Facebook post concluded.
