Via Little Green Footballs: The White House created the hashtag #askFLOTUS for citizens to tweet their concerns about childhood obesity to the First Lady. Predictably, the hashtag was quickly hijiacked by bigots.
Among these was Northern Ohio farmer John Cossel, who compared the First Lady to "Aunt Jemima" in the following racist tweet:
"why do u look like aunt jemima walking up the steps next to 2white women? Aren’t u the health nut?" (7:37 AM - Mar 11, 2013)
