‘PLANET OF THE APES’: Univision Reporter Compares Michelle Obama To An Ape

Published on March 13, 2015

A Univision reporter was fired today for comparing First Lady Michelle Obama to an ape.

This, of course, begs some further investigation.

What is Univision?

Is “A Univision” or “An Univision” the grammatically correct description?

Who is Rodner Figueroa?

The answer to the latter is that he’s the guy that got fired when he made less than flattering remarks about Mrs. Obama on the show “El Gordo y La Flaca”.

Here’s the official statement put out by Univision:

“Yesterday during our entertainment program ‘El Gordo y La Flaca’ Rodner Figueroa made comments regarding First Lady Michelle Obama that were completely reprehensible and in no way reflect Univision’s values or views. As a result, Mr. Figueroa was immediately terminated.”
