Official Removed From Post After Calling Michelle Obama 'Ape In Heels'

Officials in an all-white part of West Virginia sparked outrage across America after referring to Michelle Obama as an "ape in heels".

The mayor of the town of Clay apologised and the director of a local government-funded agency was removed from her job following the racist comment.

Pamela Ramsey Taylor, director of the Clay County Development Corp, which provides services to elderly and low-income residents, made the remark on Facebook.

She was celebrating Donald Trump's victory in the presidential election, and the elevation of Melania Trump to First Lady.

Taylor wrote: "It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I'm tired of seeing a Ape in heels."

Beverly Whaling, the mayor of Clay, responded on Facebook by saying: "Just made my day Pam."

A petition calling for Whaling to be fired had received more than 121,000 signatures as of midday on Tuesday.

In an apology the mayor denied her sentiments were racist:
