Suspended ‘SNL’ Writer Katie Rich Offered New Gig by Dan Harmon

”Rick and Morty“ boss says he wants to hire woman who made widely criticized joke about Barron Trump

Katie Rich might not spend much time in the unemployment line.

Rich, who was indefinitely suspended from “Saturday Night Live” after making a joke about First Son Barron Trump, has been offered a job by “Community” creator Dan Harmon.

Harmon extended the offer via Twitter, following news that Rich had been put on ice at “SNL,” after she tweeted that Barron Trump, 10, would become America’s “first homeschool shooter.”

“I’m sure Katie Rich will have better offers but I’ll start bidding, will fly her to LA first class and give her what my studio pays me,” Harmon tweeted on Monday.

Harmon, currently working on the Adult Swim animated series “Rick and Morty,” also noted that he would “tolerate all jokes,” in response to a since-deleted Tweet.

“Yes I would. I would tolerate all jokes. I do tolerate all jokes. And so do you. Because we have not lost our motherf–king god damn minds,” Harmon wrote.

Asked if he was aware of Rich’s joke about Barron Trump, Harmon wisecracked back, “Sure, knock knock, who’s there, a yummy child, I don’t care. Now you want her fired AND you don’t want her to work somewhere else?”

Rich created a furor with her tweet, published on the same day that Donald Trump was inaugurated as president. Shortly afterward, she was suspended indefinitely.

Rich deleted and apologized for the tweet.

Since then, Rich has received criticism as well as support. Earlier this week, the social-media campaign #KeepKatieRich emerged,. Among the supporters: “Frequency” actor Lenny Jacobson, who wrote, “Our @POTUS tweets worse things ever 30 minutes..maybe we hold him to a higher standard than a writer for a comedy show.”

TheWrap has reached out to Harmon’s representatives for comment on whether he and Rich have spoken since he made the offer.
