Comedian Facing Backlash For Mocking Victims of Illegal Immigrant Crime

Late night comedian Seth Meyers is facing mounting backlash for a tweet mocking victims of illegal immigrant crime, which was made in response to President Trump’s primetime address on Tuesday evening.

Meyers, an outspoken critic of the president and his administration, asked, “Is this Oval Office: SVU?” regarding Trump’s mentioning of American citizens who were killed at the hands of illegal immigrants.

Meyers’ comments did not sit well on social media, with pundits flocking to share their disgust.

By Wednesday evening, the remarks, which notably did come from Meyers’ “Late Night with Seth Meyers” account, rather than his personal one, had continued to draw mounting backlash, including former Fox News host Megyn Kelly and others.
