,JoAnn Nieto who reported the case, was shocked when she encountered a racist comment the doctor had made about the First Lady while scrolling through her Facebook feed.
Denver Health Medical Center doctor Michelle Herren posted an unflattering picture of FLOTUS under a status with a comment that read
”Monkey face and poor ebonic English!!! There! I feel better and am still not racist!!! Just calling it like it is!" Herren added..
It’s absolutely outrageous and ludicrous. It’s unprofessional,” Nieto said, who also complained to the CU Board of Regents. “She’s unapologetic.”
Herren removed her comment and has since taken down her Facebook page.
Until further notice, Michelle Herren, MD, will not be seeing patients or providing anesthesia services at Denver Health Medical Center," Denver Health spokesperson, Kelli Christensen, said in a statement to the News.
The doctor earns a $363,000 salary and has been employed at the clinic since 2007, according to Denver Health.
