Emmy winning fashion expert Rodner Figueroa has been fired from Univision after comments he made about Michelle Obama.
The 41-year-old talk show host, who’s known for his often outlandish fashion commentary, said that the first lady looks like someone from the cast of “Planet of the Apes.” “Oh no he didn’t!”
The shamefully inappropriate remarks were made during a live segment of the show “El Gordo y la Flaca.” The shows hosts were commenting on a viral video that demonstrates a makeup artist who transformed himself into celebrities, including Michelle Obama.
The shows co-host Lili Estefan appeared shocked at the comment and replied by asking “What are you saying?” Figueroa defended his remark, saying “but it is true.”
Univision issued a statement aboit the incident saying that Figueroa’s comments “completely reprehensible” and said they “in no way reflect the values or opinions of Univision.”
