Univision host fired after saying Michelle Obama looks like she's from 'Planet of the Apes'

Emmy-winning fashion expert Rodner Figueroa was fired from his hosting duties at Spanish-language network Univision after making racist remarks about First Lady Michelle Obama.

On the Univision show "El Gordo y la Flaca" on Wednesday, the 42-year-old Venezuelan host made several remarks about the First Lady's body, saying, "She looks like she was from the ‘Planet of the Apes.'"

During the live segment, the hosts were talking about make-up artist Paolo Ballesteros, who has been making headlines recently for transforming himself into celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lawrence, Cher and the First Lady.

It was while showing Ballesteros' makeup-based transformation of himself turning into Obama that Figueroa made his comment.
