SNL Writer Suspended After This Tweet About Trump's Son

January 23, 2017
During the inauguration festivities, Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich tweeted, "Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter." Barron is Donald and Melania Trump's 10-year-old son.

There was immediate backlash, and on Monday SNL suspended the writer indefinitely. Rich deleted her Twitter account over the weekend, but reactivated it to post this apology: Chelsea Clinton, who was of course the child of a President, commented, "Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does — to be a kid."
