'SNL' Writer Suspended Over Barron Trump Tweet (Report)

Katie Rich, a writer for Saturday Night Live, was caught up in controversy over the weekend after she suggested that Barron Trump would grow up to be “this country’s first homeschool shooter.”

The 10-year-old son of President Trump has received a lot of unkind words online during the weekend of the inauguration and former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton spoke out to defend Barron‘s right to be a normal kid.

While an official comment from the SNL team has not been released, sources told Deadline that Katie was “suspended indefinitely” from the show and her name wasn’t in the credits for the latest episode.

Katie also took to her Twitter account to release an apology for her words.

“I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry,” she tweeted. She also has deleted all of her tweets.

    Apology is too little too late. Looks good on her losing her job. What a despicable thing to say about a little kid.

  • Do Tell

    It’s getting old–people saying mean and stupid things and then saying they’re sorry. Really? They know exactly what they are saying.

  • CB

    So now you’re sorry, but how about thinking before you tweet or even speak. Regardless of who his family is, Barron is an innocent 10 yr child, he doesn’t deserve to be ridiculed or mocked by a so called Adult.

    leave this kid alone.

    typical left attitude..ozzy osborns daughter saying ” if we didn’t have illegals, who would clean our toilets”. the left represents everything wrong with the world today..all talk and no action..exhibit 1. see chicago..exhibit 2. see aclu filing suit agianst city of los angeles to repair the sidewalks on behalf of americans with disabilities..the city lost, then appealed then lost again..only the left would not want to fix the side walks to allow people with needs to live a normal life..exhibit 3. hillary clinton tipped off with debate questions..there is no honor on the left..i could go on for hours..but why..

    Typical idiot retardlikkunt made up a quote.

    She said “if you kick out all the illegals Donald Trump then who would clean your toilets.” This is about Trump using illegals, and immigrants on temporary visas as cheap labor for his menial jobs, not about illegals in general.

  • Mitt Zombie

    True, and Trump should stop walking up to 14 year old girls in malls, asking their age and then saying he will be dating them soon. That was freaking wrong.

    What’s wrong with Chicago? There was a moment when the gangs were under control and I don’t know why they don’t bring back that guy who helped it. There are drug problems in Ohio and Wisconsin, suicide, heroin, beatings, domestic abuse, child abuse. We don’t have that. I’ve got friends on the south side and they are cool. The news reports too much makes it dramatic . Glasgow Scotland has the worse crime, beat out Mexico City. You get stabbed there. Scotland settled Appalachia…
    La is bad, that I don’t get it’s shitty

  • Phil the Donahue

    Trump wants to bang his daughter. True, leave the kid alone though, he’s already going to be a mess

  • MeMeandMe

    That’s not what Osbourne kid actually said.
