A high school teacher in Alabama has been suspended from his job after being caught on tape insulting the first lady's figure.

Psychology teacher Bob Grisham has been ordered to take the rest of the school year off, and undergo "sensitivity training."

This happened after a student recorded a rant in which he blamed the school's low-calorie lunch offerings on "fat butt Michelle Obama."

One critic of the rant -- a professor at Emory University -- called the slur "an attempt to radicalize the first lady and remind people that she's black."
