Rodner Figueroa was fired from Univision after comments he made about Michelle Obama on Wednesday's episode of El Gordo y la Flaca.
Discussing makeup artist Paolo Ballesteros, who earned Internet notoriety for transforming himself into everyone from Kim Kardashian to Dakota Johnson to the First Lady, Figueroa said, "Well, watch out, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she's from the cast of Planet of the Apes, the movie."
His cohosts tried to save the situation, with Lili Estefan asking him, "What are you saying?" and Raul de Molina adding that he thought Obama was very attractive.
