Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich has been suspended indefinitely from the program after posting a tweet Friday mocking Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron Trump.
A source close to the long-running variety show told the New York Times that Rich’s suspension is “indefinite.” The writer’s name did not appear in the credits of Saturday night’s episode.
On Monday, Rich reactivated her account and posted a clearly coerced apology: “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.”
This is not the first time Barron Trump has been the subject of some light-hearted joking during his father’s transition to the presidency. In December, Rosie O’Donnell apologized to Melania Trump after sharing a video on her Twitter account that proposed the 10-year-old boy struggles with autism.
