Univision Host

Michelle Obama Got Me Fired

40 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The Univision talk show host canned for racist remarks about Michelle Obama says the pink slip was generated from the First Lady's Office.

Rodner Figueroa's team tells TMZ ... no one from the station or social media uttered a peep when he said Wednesday morning that a makeup artist who transformed himself into Michelle Obama, looked like a member of the "Planet of the Apes" cast.

The team claims at 10:20 PM Wednesday they got a call from a Univision exec who said Michelle Obama's office called the network to complain.  

Figueroa wrote a letter to the First Lady -- obtained by TMZ -- in which he says he's from a bi-racial family, half-black, half-Latin, and adds he's the first openly gay Hispanic TV presenter. He says, "I've been an activist for causes in favor of minorities, as I have been discriminated against."

Figueroa then writes, "I voted openly twice for your husband, Barack Obama."

Oh welllll!

Is that the same Asian MUA who made up himself to look like the prisoner from what i guess is from the series- scared straight? The prisoner who was bald in one clip but in the "i was waiting for you at the doe" clip is wearing a wig? I need to see that entire episode.

Fucck him. That's what they always do when they're called on their bullsh*t. All of a sudden, now that he got the boot, he wants to cover and acknowledge the "black behind the ears". That's the exact type of latino I can't stand.

Some of you have it confused I think.... The man that did the makeup portrayal in the picture above is not the news anchor. The news anchor commented on the mans makeup job and then made the terrible comment.
