Charlotte Lucas is the CEO of Lucas Oil and is worth an estimated $300 million, but she may be in trouble after she posted an epic rant against Muslims and minorities to her Facebook account last week.

Lucas quickly deleted the post, but the damage was already done, and now liberals everywhere are outraged that she would dare to question minorities in this country.

Lucas later offered a half-hearted apology for the post, saying she was emotional when she wrote it.

“I was very upset when I wrote that,” she said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do.”

“I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”

This is a clear slight to Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, which strives for Americans to eat healthier by forcing fruits and vegetables down their throats.

Lucas also briefly apologized on her Facebook page over the weekend, saying “I apologize to everyone for the insensitive comments posted on my Facebook account.”

“My comments did not reflect my personal views about any individual or minority group, only my frustration that our government system sometimes seems out of balance,” she added. “We live in a great country, but the agenda for our elected officials is too often dictated by special interest groups.”

“My comments did not reflect my true feelings, and I am sorry for anyone may have been offended.”

Lucas and her husband Forest founded Lucas Oil in 1989, and the business was immediately a huge success. Before that, Charlotte worked as a hairdresser to support her family.

Lucas Oil is now trying to distance themselves from their CEO. They released the following statement through Robert Patison, their general counsel:

“Actions speak louder than words. Lucas Oil is a small, family-owned, American company that prides itself on being a highly integrated and diverse organization with a great sense of community.

We provide significant financial support for a broad range of organizations that serve the needs of veterans, women, other minority groups, and disadvantaged individuals throughout the United States.

Fairness and equality are core values of our company.”
