SNL Writer Who Smeared Barron Trump Is Back at Work

Katie Rich

SNL writer Katie Rich posted a tweet in January which she quickly took down. “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,”  she tweeted.

Barron was 11 years old at the time and attended Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School by the way.

More than 79,000 people signed a petition to have Rich fired, and she was suspended indefinitely, according to TMZ. NBC said it had no comment on her behavior.

“I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry,” the Chicago native finally wrote a few days later.”

Other so-called comedians joined in the fun, one Stephen Spinola suggested Barron resembles a rapist.

Rich is now she’s back at work. She will work on SNL’s special summer editions of “Weekend Update.”
