Georgia Elementary School Educator Fired After Calling Michelle Obama a ‘Gorilla’, Posting Racist Messages on Facebook

An elementary school employee in Georgia was fired this week after it was revealed that she allegedly posted racist messages on Facebook.

Jane Wood Allen, who served as a teacher’s aide at the Chestatee Elementary School in Gainesville, allegedly called First Lady Michelle Obama a “gorilla” in an August Facebook post.

“I admire a gorilla more than I admire her (Wait, I forgot, she is a gorilla),” Allen allegedly wrote while linking to an article noting that Obama was one of the most admired women in the world.

Allen also allegedly stated that Obama was “the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Oh sorry, I meant gorilla not First Lady)!” More recently, she allegedly described the first lady as a “poor gorilla.”

Her posts, which have been deleted along with her entire Facebook presence, were preserved by a number of social media users, including University of Houston teaching assistant Roni Dean-Burren, whose post went viral:
