Teacher’s aide fired after calling Michelle Obama ‘a gorilla’


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.


‘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.

Allen has taken down her Facebook page, but the  screen grabs have already gone viral.
