A writer for the NBC late-night sketch show “Saturday Night Live” caused an uproar on social media with a tweet she sent out about Donald Trump’s youngest son.
The tweet from Katie Rich, sent out Friday, said: “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.” The message about the 10-year-old has since been deleted.
“The message was left up for about three hours before Rich deleted it,” The New York Post reports. “Facing a firestorm of criticism, she then made her Twitter account private, blocking public viewing of it.”
Rich, 33, has been a writer for “SNL” since 2013.
“Other Twitter users slammed Rich for targeting the child, with some calling her a ‘piece of trash’ and others calling for a boycott of NBC, which airs ‘SNL,'” The Post adds.
