Luis Gutierrez Calls On Puerto Rico To Remove Adviser After Racist Birther Tweet

Last week, a tweet from an account that belongs to Obama announced that “Someone has a birthday coming up,” above a photo of the president and First Lady Michelle Obama. Heidi Wys, an adviser to Puerto Rican House of Representatives President Jennifer González, responded: “Who cares.” (CHECK OUT THE ENTIRE TWITTER MESSAGE STRING AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS STORY)

“Take her to Burger King, buy her a sundae with double banana, take her to your homeland, Kenya!” she wrote on Twitter.

The tweet appears to play on racial slurs and the inaccurate claim that Obama was not born in the United States. Only natural-born U.S. citizens are eligible to serve as president.

Wys has tweeted separate messages questioning the real location of the president’s birth. Wys, who is white, has described herself on Twitter as someone of German origins who deeply dislikes Obama and wants to see him defeated. In subsequent tweets she has described herself as someone who is not a racist and whose favorite nieces are black.

Wys’ most recent message has been described as a racist embarrassment by multiple Puerto Rican lawmakers living on the island. Several have called for Wys to resign. However, González has declined to answer direct questions about the matter.
