Rodner Figueroa has been experiencing the fallout from his unfortunate remarks regarding Michelle Obama on "El Gordo y La Flaca." Univision swiftly fired the Venezuelan host after his comments and Colgate followed suit. Trying to defend himself after "feeling humiliated" by his former employer, Figueroa issued an open apology letter to the First Lady of the U.S. "I offer my sincerest apologies for a comment that I made about the characterization a make-up artist made about you in the Univision entertainment program 'El Gordo y La Flaca,'" the letter read. "I want to make it clear that I'm not racist and my comment wasn't directed personally to you, but to the characterization of the artist, that left a lot to be desired. The clip in full context is proof."

He added, "I feel embarrased, I ask for forgiveness, because there is no excuse for a professional like me to make those types of comments that can be interpreted as offensive and racist in a volatile moment that we live in our country. I take full responsibility for the lack of judgement in my part, but I can't accept that I am being called a racist, being fired for that reason and being humiliated by Univision after working there for 17 years." Celebrities, mostly repped by LatinWE as he is, expressed their support with messages on Twitter. Jacky Bracamontes, Raúl De Molina, Cristián De La Fuente, Ana Brenda were some of the stars that tweeted the host.
