Woman Who Called Michelle Obama "Ape In Heels" Is Finally, Actually Fired

Ahe local mayor who agreed with her resigned.

Pamela Ramsay Taylor is not a fan of Michelle Obama. She let the world know that when she compared the First Lady to an "ape in heels," leading to her firing from Clay County Development Corp, a West Virginian non-profit. News eventually broke that her company was planning on reinstating her. Now she's been fired...again...for good ...maybe...probably?

The original incident made headlines after a local mayor, Beverly Whaling, enthusiastically agreed with the racially insensitive and inflammatory post:

Whaling eventually resigned over the comment.

"Following the state's request for specific assurances that the CCDC is following anti-discrimination policies, we have been assured that Pamela Taylor has been removed from her position as CCDC director," said Democratic Governor Earl Ray Tomblin.

But will the firing actually stick this time? Hard to tell what will happen next year in #TrumpsAmerica.
