Anti-blackness runs rampant across the world.
This week, Emmy award-winning Univision TV host Rodner Figueroa has been fired for making derogatory comments about Michelle Obama during a popular television show.
A firestorm started after the comments were circulated on social media.
On the show "El Gordo Y la Flaca," Figueroa said, "You know Michelle Obama looks like she is of the cast of "The Planet Of The Apes," pointing to a picture of the First Lady.
Univision fired Figueroa; an executive told "People En Español" there was no place for racist comments in the network. Figueroa is also the host of another Univision show, "Sal Y Pimienta."
