"Saturday Night Live" writer Katie Rich has faced criticism for a now-deleted tweet targeting President Donald Trump's 10-year-old son, Barron.

Rich, who writes the "SNL Weekend Update," tweeted the following during Friday's presidential inauguration:

"Barron will be this country's first homeschool shooter."

Rich reportedly deleted the tweet after about three hours after facing intense backlash from the online community for targeting a child.

This is not the first time Barron has been at the center of a Twitter controversy. In late November, known Trump foe Rosie O'Donnell sparked an uproar after sharing a video that speculates about Barron possibly being autistic.
