Katie Rich, a writer for Saturday Night Live, is facing severe backlash over a disturbing tweet she wrote about 10-year-old Barron Trump. Now many are calling for NBC to fire the writer.
Rich wrote, “Barron will be the country’s first homeschool shooter,” she tweeted the afternoon of January 20. The comedy writer later deleted the tweet, and set her Twitter account to “private.” Her personal website katierich.com appears to also be a causality as it now reads “We are down for maintenance.”
People all over the world are standing up for the young Trump, while taking their opinions to social media.
Kelsey Newman posted to Facebook:
Seriously. You people are ruthless. Starting fires. Assaulting innocent people. Rioting in the streets. Damaging and destroying business and other people’s property. Promoting violence and hate like I have never seen before. Whatever. Do what makes you feel good. But to go after an innocent 10 year old boy? Really? THAT is what is going to heal your broken heart???? Well guess what. HIS dad is still YOUR president. And no matter what, he is and always will be more wealthy and more successful than you and your apparently perfect children will ever be. h/t heavy
Others are taking to Twitter to express their outrage:
