Univision star fired for 'Planet of Apes' quip about Michelle Obama

MIAMI (Reuters) - Spanish-language U.S. television network Univision fired presenter Rodner Figueroa after he likened first lady Michelle Obama to a cast member of the film "Planet of the Apes," the network said on Thursday.

Figueroa made the comment during an appearance on the popular talk show "El Gordo y La Flaca" on Wednesday while discussing the work of a makeup artist who works to copy the looks of famous people.
