The CEO of Tennessee’s Hospitality Association made the bold decision to send an e-mail out to a group of public figures where he compares the First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a chimpanzee.
It was reported by the Tennessean of Nashville that CEO Walt Baker’s e-mail compared Obama to the sidekick of character Tarzan, Cheeta. The message features a picture of the first lady caught off guard with her lips pursed, accompanied by a chimp that has a similar expression on its face.
Since news broke, Baker has apologized for his actions.
On Saturday, he stated, through e-mail to Nashville Metro Council, that the message was not meant to be looked at as being something malicious, but was only trying to provide some type of “political humor.”
