There is speculation that Katie Rich has been fired from Saturday Night Live after posting a deplorable tweet about 10 year old Barron Trump and how he will “become this country’s first homeschool shooter”.
Rich immediately came under fire for her tweet. Many have expressed their disgust and have started a petition demanding her termination.
Their wish may have come true as Rich’s name no longer appears in SNL credits. There is serious speculation that she has been fired, which is plausible given that the full SNL staff is normally listed in the credits. A firing would entertain the fact that she has not only deleted her tweet, but seems to have deleted much of her Twitter profile, save for an apology:
I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.
