Katie Rich, the “Saturday Night Live” writer who was suspended indefinitely for tweeting Barron Trump “will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” has received another job offer.

Dan Harmon, creator of the Adult Swim cartoon “Rick & Morty,” offered Rich a job on his show immediately after she was ousted by NBC’s SNL on Monday.

The comedy writer’s tweet, which targeted President Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, sparked outrage around the United States but attracted the attention of at least one potential employer, according to Fox News.

Harmon responded to a tweet from the network announcing Rich’s suspension by saying “Aaaaaaaand hired.” He reiterated his intentions to hire Rich saying “I would tolerate all jokes. I do tolerate all jokes. And so do you. Because we have not lost our motherfucking god damn minds.”

Harmon even offered to fly Rich out to Los Angeles to meet with the studio executives of the show.

After receiving some well-deserved backlash for going after an innocent 10-year-old on Twitter, Rich deleted her account. She later reactivated it on Monday to issue an apology.

“I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.”
