That's right, ex-Univision star Rodner Figueroa was on the program El Gordo y La Flaca when he said that Michelle Obama looked like a "cast member of Planet of the Apes."

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 want to clarify that I am not racist in any way, my comment was not directed towards you, but towards the characterization of the artist, who left much to be desired. The entire video clip in context proves it.

I feel embarrassed, I apologize, because there is no excuse for a professional like me to make these type of comments that can be interpreted as offensive and racist in such volatile times in our country. 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.

Read his full remarks in Spanish for yourself (below)!!!

Billy Eichner's show Billy On The Street is absolutely hilarious.

He is easily one of the most energetic hosts we've ever seen and we love it!

What we love the most, is how popular his show has become. He can pull some serious guests.

Like Michelle Obama and Big Bird!!

They seem like a random pairing but they were there together! They were celebrating the 5th anniversary of Let's Move and were hanging out in a super market because of the Eat Brighter campaign!

It's all about Sesame Street teaming up with the First Lady to get kids to eat healthier! Sesame Street characters even appear on vegetable packaging.

Michelle Obama does NOT have a poker face!

The First Lady looked extremely irritated and OVER IT when meeting the new king of Saudi Arabia, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, this week.

King Salman is the successor to the late King Abdullah, who passed away earlier this month. Since the late king was a big supporter of Barack Obama, even once gifting him with a $132,000 diamond and ruby set, Michelle and POTUS decided to attend his January 27 funeral.

Your Reaction?

"We are a strong, tight-knit family who has made it through some very, very hard times."

The State of The Union annually marks the President living up to his duty to publicly address America and touch upon issues that are pertinent to the country.

And 2015 was no different as President Barack Obama gave a storied speech discussing all matters, ranging from economy and job creation to health and human services.

Plus, for the first time in American history…
