Out The First Lady Referring To Her As An "Gorilla"
The firing comes after a public outcry about the comments posted by paraprofessional Jane Wood Allen.
In one post from August, Allen reposted an article titled, “First Lady Michelle Obama continues to top lists of most admired women in the world. Do you admire her?” Allen then wrote her own caption above the article:

Last week, Allen posted another disgraceful caption insulting the Michelle Obama. She posted an article from Americannews.com titled, “Outrage after Michelle Obama Slips Up…America Furious.” This time, Allen’s caption read:
“This poor Gorilla. How is she going to function in the real world, by not having her luxurious vacations paid for anymore? She needs to focus on getting a total make-over (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations!”
Allen posted on her Facebook page inflammatory comments about the First Lady while sharing articles about Mrs. Obama, according to screenshots shared on the social media site.
Allen worked as a paraprofessional, or teacher's aide, at Chestatee Elementary School.
In a statement Friday, District Communications Director Jennifer Caracciolo said, “"We were made aware of the posts Friday morning.
Our schools were closed for fall break last week. We have and will continue to address this issue with the employee on Monday. Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in Forsyth County Schools."
