Comedian Seth Meyers came under criticism after a tweet from the "Late Night with Seth Meyers" account was accused of mocking victims who were murdered by illegal immigrants.
The tweet was a response to President Donald Trump's speech on Tuesday, in which he referenced California police officer Ronil Singh, who was shot and killed, allegedly by illegal immigrant Gustavo Perez Arriaga, on Dec. 26, 2018.
Singh immigrated to the United States legally from Fiji.
The "Late Night" tweet read, "Is this Oval Office: SVU?"

just wondering if there was anything less funny than seth meyers - turns out, it's his twitter feed. https://t.co/rwISQW10oh— GregGutfeld (@greggutfeld) January 9, 2019
This tweet is bombing faster than your ratings.— Matthew LaDolcetta (@MattLaDolcetta) January 9, 2019
It is unclear if Meyers wrote the Tweet directly himself but either way this is not a good look for the late-night host.
I’m sure that’s hysterical to the families of the murder victims the president just discussed. https://t.co/XOOWeWZMSp— Megyn Kelly (@megynkelly) January 9, 2019
