SNL Writer Suspended for Hurtful Tweet About Barron Trump

Barron Trump

Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich may soon be out of a job. Rich was reportedly suspended indefinitely for sending out an insensitive tweet about Donald Trump’s 5’11” 10-year-old son, Barron Trump, that read, “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter”.
The tweet sparked an uproar on social media and prompted users to call for her termination from Saturday Night Live.
As the uproar escalated, Rich initially made her Twitter account private while she scrubbed every tweet from her account.
On Monday she tweeted: “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.”
Rich worked for Saturday Night Live since 2013.
