Katie Rich Fired? @KatieMaryRich Twitter, Facebook Deleted: ‘SNL’ Writer’s Tweet About Barron Trump, 10, And Boycott Buzz

Katie Rich Fired? @KatieMaryRich Twitter, Facebook Deleted: ‘SNL’ Writer’s Tweet About Barron Trump, 10, And Boycott Buzz: Has Katie Rich been fired from SNL? Katie hasn’t just deleted her Twitter tweet in the wake of Rich’s tweet about 10-year-old Barron Trump, but she has also deleted her entire Twitter account. The recent development came in the wake of Rich coming under heavy fire for tweeting that Barron Trump — the 10-year-old son of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump — would grow up to be the country’s first homeschool shooter. The inference was that Barron would somehow get fed up with a homeschooled type of life and react with violence, even though Barron attends an elite private school. Katie’s joke was taken as more than a joke. After all, Rich didn’t make the joke as part of an SNL skit — as would be in the realm of Katie’s SNL job as a writer — even though SNL as a show would probably stay away from jokes about Barron. Instead, Rich made the joke about Barron — a real boy, a human being — and that joke fell flat with some people on social media.
