WV Nonprofit Director Pamela Ramsey Taylor FIRED After Calling Michelle Obama ‘Ape in Heels’

One down, one to go…

On Monday, Pamela Ramsey Taylor was fired from her job as the director of West Virginia nonprofit agency Clay County Development after her racist Facebook post targeting first lady Michelle Obama made national headlines.

“It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified first lady in the White House,” Taylor’s post read, according to local news station WSAZ 3. “I’m tired of seeing an ape in heels.”

Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling hit the comment section with: “Just made my day, Pam.”

WSAZ 3 reported that Taylor deleted the post and replaced it with an apology on her now-deactivated account.

As previously reported, Whaling, whose Facebook account has also been deleted, claimed that her remark was “not intended to be racist at all.” She maintained she was just excited about Donald Trump’s victory.

“I was referring to my day being made for change in the White House!” she wrote to the Washington Post. “I am truly sorry for any hard feeling this may have caused! Those who know me know that I’m not of any way racist!”

On Tuesday, a petition calling for Taylor’s and Whaling’s termination reached over 129,000 signatures.

As previously reported, Taylor is now planning a lawsuit against those who have “slandered” her.

Following the backlash, the West Virginia Democratic party — of which Whaling is a member — issued its own official apology to FLOTUS on Twitter.

“These radical, hateful and racist ideals are exactly what we at the West Virginia Democratic Party will continue to fight against,” the statement says. “We will continue to fight for a West Virginia that is inclusive, not divisive, and a home for all to feel safe, welcome and protected.”

“In a time when we are at a crossroads and many fear the future, we must stand together against hate of all forms,” the statement continued.

  • Glad that SOB sorry ass fat bit3 is fired an out of a job… I really think she is just jealous since she’s so dam fat old and fugly

  • Beverly Whaling, the mayor of Clay, West Virginia, resigned on Tuesday (15 November) following an uproar over her response to a racist comment posted on Facebook that described US First Lady Michelle Obama as an "ape in heels".
    Another one bites the dust.

  • Wow, A pig in makeup doesn't seem to like the most beautiful, well educated and hip First Lady in history. Sad racist.

  • She needs to take two giant steps back from the dinner table instead of talking smack about the FLOTUS. Actually, I'd rather have an 'ape in heels' than a illiterate whore for a First Lady.

  • As for me I would be disgusted to have such an idiot on heels as that Pamela Ramsey Taylor. I hope she'll never find a job again. The only room for her would be a mental asylum or a cell.

  • Omg she's a fat, ugly bitch! I hope she never finds another job. Glad she's getting death threats - she deserves them!!!

  • This is so pathetic and so demonstrative of the vast majority of trump's supporters. What also bothers me is that trump's followers are just following his cue... for example, calling Megan Kelly, a respected lawyer and journalist, a bimbo. Have you seen the nude photos of trump's stepford wife, Milania? She's a former stripper who came to this country undocumented. She plagiarized the first lady, Michelle Obama because she can't think for herself and can barely speak english. Most celebrities can see through him because most have met him face to face...Megan Kelly, Ms. Universe, Rosie O'donnell, Katie Perry, J-Lo supported the democratic party, and so do Bruce Springsteen, Queen and REM (which trump feels free to steal their music for his rallies without their permission) I hope they sue him. The only celebrity woman who voted for trump was Rosanne Barr, who grabbed her crotch while being bood off-stage for singing the national anthem off-key...guess she's right at home with another groper in the white house. I think the only reason people support trump is because they live vicariously through his bullying. They are frustrated, angry people who want a bully in the white house so they can live through him vicariously....pathetic. And now this mayor and her friend feel free to bully the first lady? Good riddance!

  • Free Speech anyone? I see its OK to call her ( Mrs Ramsey ) a Fat Ugly Bitch , or a Pig in Makeup! Maybe some of you should be fired from your jobs, if you have one.
