Rodner Figueroa Fired For Michelle Obama Comments

A Univision host was recently fired after he made disgusting comments about The First Lady. Rodner Figuero was quickly axed from the network after he said that Michelle Obama “looks like she is of the cast of “The Planet Of The Apes.”

NBC News reports:

A popular Univision talk show host has been fired for making derogatory comments about Michelle Obama during a popular television show; the comments were widely circulated on social media.

On the Univision show “El Gordo Y la Flaca,” Emmy award-winning host Rodner Figueroa said, “You know Michelle Obama looks like she is of the cast of “The Planet Of The Apes,” pointing to a picture of the First Lady. The exchange took place during a segment on makeup transformations by a makeup artist, Paolo Ballesteros, who makes himself look like famous women celebrities.

Univision fired Figueroa; an executive told “People En Español” there was no place for racist comments in the network.

Figueroa is also the host of another Univision show, “Sal Y Pimienta.”
