Gall? Check. Nerve? Check. Ignorant. Double check. Jane Wood Allen posted an insulting and downright stoopid post on Facebook where she referenced first lady Michelle Obama as a mammal.
The Forsyth County School System (Georgia) gave Allen her walking papers today, Monday, Oct. 3, 2016 for posting a photo of our FLOTUS and writing this caption:
“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 make-over (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations! She is a disgrace to America!”
A Facebook page called, “Chestatee Elementary School Fire Jane Wood Allen, NOW” was created and demanded her removal.
Allen was a teacher a teacher at Chestatee Elementary School in Gainesville, Georgia.
In a posting on its Facebook page, Forsyth County Schools wrote “Effective Monday, Oct. 3, Jane Wood Allen has been relieved from duty and is no longer an employee of Forsyth County Schools.
