Univision host fired for 'Planet of Apes' Michelle Obama remark
Los Angeles (AFP) - The United States' largest Spanish-language television channel has fired a key presenter who said First Lady Michelle Obama looked like a cast member from "Planet of the Apes," Univision said Thursday.
Venezuelan host Rodner Figueroa made the comment Wednesday during the evening "El Gordo y La Flaca" program, as moderators discussed a make-up artist who had transformed himself into a variety of female celebrity figures including Obama.
As images of the man plus Obama appeared on the screen, Figueroa commented in Spanish that "Michelle Obama looks like a cast member of 'Planet of the Apes.'"
Figueroa, nicknamed "El Fashionista," made a name for himself on Univision as a fashion expert, with frequent commentary and critiques of US and Latin stars plus red-carpet interviews.

An Indianapolis man is in trouble with they mayor's office for a video he made showing him planting a tree in one of the city's many potholes.
A better idea would be to "adopt a pothole" until the state, county or city decides to claim the pothole as their own and repair it. In the mean time pothole crusaders could nurture their "adopted pothole" by vigilantly observing their "pothole" to see if their tax dollars have been used by the government to fix the hazard. After the pothole is repaired correctly a pothole crusader could then "adopt" another neglected pothole.
I hope all Pothole crusaders will "adopt a pothole" until their hard earned tax dollars are spent fixing a dangerous pothole.
The Pothole Crusader must be vigilant and make sure their "adopted pothole" is fixed quickly by the state, county or city government.
If it is not go to the next level and contact your state legislator and inform him about the pothole that needs attention.
