An Arkansas teacher who made a series of racist comments about Michelle and Barack Obama has resigned from his post following public backlash.

In the comments, he called the First Lady “Michelle Obummer… America’s First Chimp” and went on to say that he’s happy “that nasty chimp and her spider monkey hubby gone for good.”

Trent Bennett, a former High School science teacher in Malvern, made the inflammatory remarks on the Facebook page of local TV station KTHV-TV on December 24.

The comments sparked a massive backlash with scores of people taking to social media to call for Bennett’s resignation. The Arkansas State Conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) also sent him a letter asking him to step down.

The Malvern School District posted a statement on its Facebook page labelling the comments “inappropriate,” “insensitive” while also commenting that “in no way are the posts reflective of the district.”

The district held a special board meeting on Thursday where board members voted 6-0 to accept Bennett’s resignation, which became effective immediately.

The former teacher sent a letter of apology to local TV station KATV: “I would like to issue an apology for the outrage and hurt feelings caused by these comments. I am aware of the impact this has had, and though I negate that I have ever conducted myself in a less than professional manner in regard to my students, I have resigned my teaching position at Malvern High School,” Bennett said.

    Nothing was done to that Drexel U prof who called for white genocide last week. And what about the millions of libs who called Bush a chimp during his 8 years in the WH?

    • True. But it really doesn’t have the same connotations when Bush is compared to an Organ Grinder monkey, does it? The Drexel Prof should be investigated and fired if necessary, I agree.

    Chimps are cute entertaining and many would love to own one. Can anyone say the same about the Ombammy’s? I think the man like all men have the right to speak what they wish as given by God and the first amendment. It does not live when people think just because they like not what is being said should be censored. I find fault not in what he said, but his example of the chimp again see above.

  • Why do people keep saying these things? They can’t figure it out that they will be fired? The guy should not be in Education because he is obviously an idiot.

    Merely claim Pithecophobia caused his meltdown.
    Ask for counselling and have a 6 month paid leave.
    Also claim it is a kind of Tourettes and he could not help himself (another 6 months counselling paid leave etc.)
    Get Chrysophobia after that and ask for counselling and have a 6 month paid leave. You get the idea.

    There is a reason why one man is born black and with other
    disadvantages, while another is born Mormon and white with great
    advantages. The reason is that we once had an estate before we came
    here, and were obedient; more or less, to the laws that were given us
    there. Those who were faithful in all things there [pre-existence]
    received greater blessings here, and those who were not faithful
    received less. . . . There were no neutrals in the war in Heaven. All
    took sides either with Christ or with Satan. Every man had his agency
    there, and men receive rewards here based upon their actions there, just
    as they will receive rewards hereafter for deeds done in the body. The
    Negro,
    evidently, is receiving the reward he merits.

      Blacks aren’t even considered human in the Bible.
      They are considered beasts of the field.
