"Do u know what Obama Coffee is? Black and weak,"
Jerusalem (AFP) - The flamboyant wife of Israeli Interior Minister Silvan Shalom published an "inappropriate joke" Sunday about US President Barack Obama on her Twitter account, only to later delete it and apologise.
"Do u know what Obama Coffee is? Black and weak," Judy Shalom Nir-Mozes wrote to her 74,400 followers.
Online shock, condemnation and accusations of racism later led her to delete the incriminating tweet.
"President Obama I shouldnt have written the inappropriate joke I heard," she also wrote, addressing the US leader directly. "I like people no matter about their race and religion."
"Sorry if I caused any offence to anyone. I hope I will stay married when my husband will land and hear what I did," she added.
