The director of a West Virginia development group and a mayor posted a racist comment about the first lady Michelle Obama caused outrage on social media. The two women are under scrutiny and social media expressed anger on the racist post.

After Donald Trump’s election as president, Clay Country Development Corp. director Pamela Ramsey Taylor posted, “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.”

This post was responded by Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling, “Just made my day Pam”.

WSAZ-TV first reported about the post. Before it was deleted, the post was shared hundred of times on social media. Also, the Facebook pages of Whaling and Taylor couldn’t be found on Monday. The both women didn’t respond the calls and messages. An online petition was made, seeking the removal of Whaling and Taylor.

This nonprofit group provides services to low-income and elderly residents in Clay Country. The group is funded by the state, federal grants and local fees.

Almost 77 percent people of Clay Country supported Trump in the election. President Barack Obama received only 31 percent vote from the residents in 2012 election.
