Univision host Rodner Figueroa was fired after comparing First Lady Michelle Obama to the cast of “The Planet of the Apes.”

Figueroa, the host of “El Gordo Y laFlaca,” said in Spanish, “You know Michelle Obama looks like she is of the cast of “The Planet Of The Apes” while pointing to a photograph of the First Lady.

Whatever…Rodner Figueroa is now out of a job and Mrs. Obama remains a beautiful black woman.

Huffington Post:  “In an extensive open letter to the First Lady, Figueroa offered a formal apology for what was said but explained that it had been taken out of context. The former also said he was verbally notified that he was being fired because of a complaint from Michelle Obama’s office and that he felt Univision had publicly humiliated him.”
