Calling Michelle Obama a ‘poor gorilla’ and a ‘disgrace to America’ in a Facebook rant gets educator canned

A Georgia educator took things way too far and could be finding herself in the unemployment line for racist remarks against Michelle Obama.

Jane Wood Allen who worked at the Chestatee Elementary School in Georgia  posted several comments referring to the first lady as a “gorilla.”

“This poor Gorilla,” she wrote. “How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore? She needs to focus on getting a total make-over (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations! She is a disgrace to America!”

The posts were screen captured by Forsyth County News, and quickly caught the attention of school officials.

“Effective Monday, Oct. 3, Jane Wood Allen has been relieved from duty and in no longer an employee of Forsyth County Schools,” a statement by the school district read on its Facebook page.

“Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district.”

Allen went on a racist rant aimed at the Michelle Obama earlier in August too.

“I admire a gorilla more than I admire her. (Wait, I forgot, she is a gorilla)! If she was a real First Lady, she would not have used and abused her title, by thinking that she is entitled to go on all the trips that she takes every other day. But more of all wasted all of our tax payers money. She is the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Oh sorry, I meant gorilla not First Lady)!”

It’s one thing to criticize the Frist Lady’s lavish, spending habits, but it’s an entirely different thing to inject blatant racism into the “argument.”

It looks like Allen’s posts are forever stamped in time, which will make it difficult, if not impossible, to find another position in education.

Judging from her posts, it’s probably best she stays away from impressionable children.
