A Georgia teacher aide has been fired after calling First Lady Michelle Obama a “gorilla” on social media.

Jane Wood Allen, a former aide at Chestatee Elementary in Gainesville, Georgia, shared an article about the First Lady going on vacation, posting, “This poor Gorilla. How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore.”

In previous instances, Allen reportedly wrote in regards to Obama being one of the most admired women in the world, “I admire a gorilla more than I admire her. (Wait I forgot, she is a gorilla),” reports the New York Daily News.

While she removed her posts, social media never forgets and on Monday her bosses announced that she had been fired, writes the news outlet.

While the district’s response was appropriate, it is worrisome that a person of her mentality was involved with shaping young minds in a classroom in the first place. Sound off in comments.
