Teacher fired after calling Michelle Obama ‘gorilla’ and saying she's a disgrace to America on Facebook

A teacher’s aide in Forsyth County, Georgia has been fired after making a racist comment about Michelle Obama on her Facebook page.

Jane Wood Allen, who worked as a ‘paraprofessional’ or teacher’s aide at Chestatee Elementary School in Gainesville was fired on Monday, according to the Forsyth County Schools Facebook page. She had worked for the school district since 1989, according to Forsyth News.

She wrote on her Facebook wall:
'This poor Gorilla. 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 makeover (especially the hair) instead of planning vacations. She is a disgrace to America!'

In another post, she wrote:
'I admire a gorilla more that I admire her. (Wait I forgot, she is a gorilla)! She is the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Oh sorry, I meant gorilla not First Lady)!' 

The school district where she taught sacked her and shared:
 'Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district. We are committed to ongoing staff training on the acceptance of all individuals,' wrote the school district.
