  • SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — An adviser to Puerto Rico's most powerful female lawmaker is facing calls to resign after she sent a tweet to President Barack Obama that local politicians have labeled as racist.

    Heidi Wys sent the tweet shortly after Obama tweeted that Michelle Obama's birthday was coming up.

    Wys tweeted the following in response: "Who cares? Take her to Burger King, buy her a sundae with double banana, take her to your homeland, Kenya!"

    Wys is adviser to House of Representatives President Jenniffer Gonzalez.

    On Tuesday, several legislators demanded that Wys step down.

    Wys, who is white, said in another tweet that she is not racist and that her favorite nieces are black, but that she does not support Obama.

    1. FREEDOM OF SPEECH, oh i forgot freedom of speech is granted only if you agree with obama. who cares about her birthday. OBAMA WHERE ARE THE JOBS FOR US POOR PEOPLE.

    2. What that person in P.R. tweeted does not reflect what most Puerto Ricans think of Obama at all It’s just the Opposite. Please keep in mind that not all Latino’s Are Black or Browm . and that the Arian nation is Alive and well in the Caribbean Nations .

    3. FAMOUS LAST WORDS: I’M NOT A RACIST..!! If it’s said about someone that you “DON’T KNOW”?? JUST THINK WHAT IS SAID ABOUT THE “LOVE ONES”….PRAY..PRAY..PRAY…GOD BLESS..!

    4. OMG…..These people NEED to be prosecuted for not following the Laws the created/invented……OMG, what am I thinking, white people make the Laws, black and latinos just have to follow it….
