Barely a month after West Virginia mayor resigned after praising her friend’s Facebook post calling the First Lady an “ape in heels.”a Colorado doctor is under fire for calling Michelle Obama a monkey face.
JoAnn Nieto who reported the case, was shocked when she encountered a racist comment the doctor had made about the First Lady while scrolling through her Facebook feed.
Denver Health Medical Center doctor Michelle Herren posted an unflattering picture of FLOTUS under a status with a comment that read
”Monkey face and poor ebonic English!!! There! I feel better and am still not racist!!! Just calling it like it is!” Herren added.
Herren works in the children’s unit as a pediatric anesthesiologist and is listed as an assistant professor at the University Of Colorado Denver School Of Medicine, a non-paid position.
Until further notice, Michelle Herren, MD, will not be seeing patients or providing anesthesia services at Denver Health Medical Center,” Denver Health spokesperson, Kelli Christensen, said in a statement to the News.
