[Ed. – Really low class, dude. But what’s perhaps of real interest here is learning what can actually get you fired, even if you’re Hispanino/Latispanic.]
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.
