Looks like actions don’t have consequences! “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich is apparently back on the job after being suspended in January for saying on Twitter that “Barron [Trump] will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.”
Critics from both sides of the aisle condemned the tweet, which she later deleted. Rich also issued an apology several days later:
I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I'm so sorry.

Some Twitter users did not think the apology was good enough:

probably a good idea not to bully someone you don't know, let alone a child. See how easily your hate reflex is triggered 👎

Others called for her firing:
Rich was initially indefinitely suspended for her insensitive Tweet, but she had writing credit’s for Thursday night’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition.” Whether or not she will continue to write for SNL is unknown.
Y’all, this lady said Barron Trump, and 11-year old child, would kill his own family. How messed up is that? But I guess when you’re a liberal in media, you’ll always have a job.
