During the inauguration festivities, Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich tweeted, "Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter." Barron is Donald and Melania Trump's 10-year-old son.

There was immediate backlash, and on Monday SNL suspended the writer indefinitely. Rich deleted her Twitter account over the weekend, but reactivated it to post this apology: Chelsea Clinton, who was of course the child of a President, commented, "Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does — to be a kid."
