A nonprofit group’s director and a mayor in a small town in West Virginia have been swept up in a firestorm surrounding comments they’ve made about Michelle Obama that have been perceived as blatantly racist.

“It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels,” according to NBC affiliate WSAZ.

Comments posted by Pamela Ramsey Taylor (pictured above), on her Facebook page about Michelle Obama.

Taylor, who was director of Clay County Development Corp. in Clay, Virginia, a small town outside of Charleston, made the comment about the move from Michelle Obama to Melania Trump.

The news station reported that the town’s mayor, Beverly Whaling, then replied, “Just made my day Pam.”

The comments were later deleted, but images of the post have been shared widely on social media. As of Monday afternoon, an online petition calling for the women’s terminations had garnered more than 14,000 signatures.

Both of their Facebook pages have been removed, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

The two women have apologized for their remarks.
