Georgia Teacher’s Aide Fired After Calling Michelle Obama “A Gorilla”
A Georgia teacher’s aide has been fired after she shared Facebook posts repeatedly calling First Lade Michelle Obama a “gorilla.”
Jane Allen worked at Chestatee Elementary in Gainesville, northeast of Atlanta, when she posted a conservative news article about the First Lady taking vacations.
“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 said.
Next to 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 been removed, but her comments have already circulated on social media, by users questioning Allen’s ability to teach children.
