This is getting crazy!
Univision host Rodner Figueroa was fired for making a statement comparing Michelle Obama to a cast member from Planet of the Apes, but he says that's not why he was fired!
According to a new lawsuit, Rodner says that the station was looking for a reason to get rid of him because he was trying to unionize the station to help Latinos there. He also claims he was illegally fired for these reasons, and that this is the reason he's being called a
Here's a new opinion on this.

This is it.
Not only is Ellen DeGeneres crowned as the most AH-Mazing host of daytime talk shows, she now takes the title of best selfie taker EVER!
The First Lady of the United States aka Michelle Obama as well as the First Lady of Scandal Bellamy Young stopped by the set on Thursday and they all took this AH-Mazing photo!
Much like the Oscars selfie that straight up BROKE the internet, this one kinda had the same effect!
The 57-year-old shared the picture on Instagram and wrote:
Ellen DeGeneres had a very special guest on Thursday's show: First Lady Michelle Obama! And since she's such a high profile person, Ellen got super competitive. Not only did she reveal that she's in better shape than Mrs. Obama, but she also challenged her to a dance-off!

After making racist remarks about the First Lady, one fired television personality is owning up to his awful comments… kind of.
Just disgusting. SRSLY! What century are we living in?!
However, Rodney has since released an apology in wich he claims that he's not a racist. Here's an excerpt of his statement that was personally addressed to Michelle:

I take responsibility for this lack of judgment on my part, but I cannot accept being called a racist by anyone and be dismissed as such, and publicly humiliated by Univision after 17 years in this business.

OMG, what century do we live in?!
Someone update Univision star Rodner Figueroa's calendar to let him know, because this is some repugnant, regressive shiz!
The El Gordo y La Flaca host was commenting on a makeup artist who transformed herself into various celebs on Wednesday when Michelle Obama came up.
