Katie Rich Has Reportedly Returned to the ‘SNL’ Writing Staff

By

After being suspended from the show for the second half of last season, it appears that writer Katie Rich has returned to Saturday Night Live. The Chicago Sun-Times noticed during the credits of last night’s Weekend Update special that Rich was listed in the credits as one of the episode’s 12 writers – the first time she’s been credited since the show suspended her in January after she tweeted a joke about Barron Trump that resulted in an online campaign to have her fired and even a statement from Donald Trump himself calling the joke a “disgrace.” SNL’s decision to suspend Rich caused a controversy of its own, and a handful of writers and comedians came to her defense including Dan Harmon, who even offered her a job. NBC is not commenting on Rich’s reinstatement.
