Remember the to-do back in January about the "Saturday Night Live" writer Katie Rich, who was suspended after tweeting a joke about President Trump's son, Barron? Well, it looks like she's back to work.

Rich was one of 12 writers who was listed as contributing to the "SNL" spinoff, "Weekend Update: Summer Edition" with Michael Che and Colin Jost Thursday night.

NBC didn't immediately respond to TheWrap's request for confirmation that Rich's suspension had been lifted or otherwise comment on her status.

The Chicago-born writer-comedian was suspended immediately after she posted - then deleted - a tweet Jan. 20 in which she joked that 10-year-old Barron Trump could become the country's first "homeschool shooter." At the time, the length of her suspension was unknown.

Kate Rich, a comedy writer for NBC's Saturday Night Live , is suspended following a tweet ridiculing US President Donald Trump 's youngest son, Barron .

Twitter can be hazardous to your career. Just ask Katie Rich. The Saturday Night Live writer has been suspended indefinitely from the show following a questionable tweet about President Donald Trump ’s son Barron , according to our sister site Deadline.

Rich issued an apology via her Twitter account, which read, "I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I'm so sorry."

Supporters and critics jumped on social media to either bash her or, basically, tell people to chill. While a Change.org petition that called for her to be fired reached almost 80,000 signatures, a #KeepKatieRich crowd believed the punishment didn't fit the crime.

"She deleted the tweet & apologized sincerely, demonstrating empathy, class & character. She didn't call it 'locker room talk,'" fellow comedy writer Julia Weiss tweeted. "Community" creator Dan Harmon even offered Rich a job in light of her suspension and devoted several tweets to defending her.
