Megyn Kelly ripped her former network’s late night show, NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Tuesday night after its Twitter account made what many people considered to be an offensive tweet.
The show fired off the tweet during President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address on border security.
During his address, Trump invoked the U.S. citizens who lost their lives as a result of brutal murders committed by illegal immigrants.
Kelly, a former NBC “Today” show host and onetime Fox News anchor, tore into the late-night show after its Twitter account joked about Trump’s naming of victims who were killed by illegal immigrants.
The show’s account wrote, “Is this Oval Office: SVU?” — a reference to NBC’s show, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Kelly fired back, “I’m sure that’s hysterical to the families of the murder victims the president just discussed.”

Kelly wasn’t the only one who took offense to the tweet. At the time of this writing, Kelly’s tweet has received over 22,000 likes, and has been retweeted over 4,700 times.
Donald Trump Jr. noticed the offending tweet and called the comedian out as well.
Trump wrote, “As usual they know no bounds. … Those murdered by illegals who have multiple felonies and deportations are just a punch line to these lib clowns. Such a disgrace.”
Author Mark Dice caught the tweet, too. He wrote, “Why is @NBC mocking Americans who are murdered by illegal aliens? Trump addresses the effects of illegal aliens flooding into our country, and @SethMeyers thinks it’s funny. Sick.”
Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld also added his praise to the chorus, writing, “just wondering if there was anything less funny than seth meyers — turns out, it’s his twitter feed.”
Last, in what could be considered the most compelling response of the evening, ForAmerica — a nonprofit organization dedicated to championing conservatism — shared actual photos of some of the victims. The organization’s account responded to the show’s quip with, “No, it’s real life.”
