A racist Facebook post about Michelle Obama has sparked a furious backlash which saw a West Virginia mayor forced to resign.
The First Lady was branded an “ape in heels” in a vile social media post comparing her to president-elect Donald Trump’s wife Melania.
Following the Republican candidate’s victory, Facebook user Pamela Ramsey Taylor, from the tiny town of Clay in West Virginia, praised the shift from Obama to Trump.
She wrote: “It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified first lady back in the White House.
“I’m tired of seeing an ape in heels.”
