'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.
