According to The Hill, A West Virginia government employee who was removed from her position for a Facebook post referring to the first lady Michelle Obama as an “ape in heels” will get her job back, according to recent reports.

Pamela Taylor, director of the Clay County Development Corp., was fired in early November after she said “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.”

The Clay County Development Corp. announced on Saturday that Taylor would be reinstated on Dec. 23.

The post also cost the local mayor her job. Former Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling resigned after commenting that Taylor’s post “just made my day.”

The post was a source of public outrage, with nearly 1,500 people demanding the resignations of both via a petition. The two have since made public apologies.

    classy, beautiful, dignified? I guess Pamela Taylor really likes the GQ cover photo? Does she represent West Virginia in her taste and her bigotry? Keep her unemployed would be my vote.
