A talk show host has been fired for racist comments about Michelle Obama, and, surprisingly, he wasn't employed by Fox News. Former Univision host Rodner Figueroa has lost his job for saying the First Lady looks like a "member of the Planet of the Apes." His offensive comments came on Univision's hit program El Gordo y La Flaca.
Figueroa has yet to apologize, but Univision has released the following statement: "Yesterday during our entertainment program El Gordo y La Flaca, Rodner Figueroa made comments regarding First Lady Michelle Obama that were completely reprehensible and in no way reflect Univision's values or views. As a result, Mr. Figueroa was immediately terminated."
No word on if Fox News has made Figueroa a job offer yet.
