Comedian Seth Meyers Mocks Murdered Officer's Family, Other Victims

Thousands of Twitter users criticized comedian Seth Meyers for his offensive post on Tuesday night.

New York, NY - Late Night comedian Seth Meyers was accosted by thousands of social media users after he mocked victims who have been murdered by illegal immigrants in a tweet on Tuesday night.

Meyers’ tweet was made on the heels of President Donald Trump’s Oval Office Address, during which he mentioned the brutal murder of Newman Police Department Corporal Ronil Singh.

“America's heart broke the day after Christmas when a young police officer in California was savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien who just came across the border,” President Trump said. “The life of an American hero was stolen by someone who had no right to be in our country.”

President Trump also reminded the public about a litany of other cases where Americans were killed by illegal aliens.

“In California, an air force veteran was raped, murdered and beaten to death with a hammer by an illegal alien with a long criminal history,” he said.

“In Georgia, an illegal alien was recently charged with murder for killing, beheading and dismembering his neighbor,” the President continued. “In Maryland, MS-13 gang members who arrived in the United States as unaccompanied minors, were arrested and charged last year after viciously stabbing and beating a 16-year-old girl.”

President Trump said he has “met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration” over the past several years, and asked citizens to try to understand the trauma and loss felt by the families of the victims.

“Is this Oval Office: SVU?” Late Night with Seth Meyers tweeted after the President’s speech.

Thousands of responses soon followed – an overwhelming majority of which slammed the comedian for mocking murder victims and their families.

“I’m sure that’s hysterical to the families of the murder victims the president just discussed,” former NBC host Megyn Kelly tweeted.

Another user posted a photo of Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson presenting an American flag to Cpl. Singh’s widow at his funeral.

“So much humor in this,” the tweet read.

A photo of Officer Singh and his family – taken just hours before his murder – was also on display in the comments thread.

“You will probably have the great fortune of spending next Christmas with your wife, your children and your loved ones,” the post read. “Officer Singh and his loved ones will never enjoy that experience, again. Some things are off limits, Seth --- this is one.”

One post included the names and photos of other citizens who have been killed by illegal aliens.

Some attacked Meyers’ television ratings, and many suggested that they might fall further in light of his offensive post.

Another person suggested that Meyers try speaking with the families of those who have been killed.

Meyers’ show and his personal representative did not respond to a request for comment, FOX News reported.

Never watched him and hopefully the POS will be out of a job soon...I support all police officers and their families and when someone who has no clue about what police officers go through on a daily basis should keep their mouths shut!

His show has sucked since day one. He sucked on SNL. He sucks at life. Seth, your mom should have swallowed the night you were conceived.

Wow, Roseanne got canned for her comment. But, he's still on the air?? No justice!

I stopped watching him ages ago (not that funny). I'm sick of all the bad impressions of Trump on late night. It's lazy comedy, and just not that funny any more, and they don't care or (usually) take responsibility for collateral damage of their bad jokes.

SETH HAS NEVER BEEN FUNNY IN HIS LIFE AND HE SURE IS NOT FUNNY MAKING FUN OF MURDERED POLICE OFFICERS AND OTHERS KILLED BY THE DAMN CRIMINAL ILLEGALS. MAYBE HE WILL THINK IT IS SO FUNNY WHEN A MEMBER OF HIS FAMILY IS RAPED, BEATEN, KILLED OR BEHEADED LETS HEAR YOU LAUGHING NOW YOU SOB.

Do ANY of these "comedians" have a line they WON'T cross?! How tactless can you get?! For crying out loud, that cop was MURDERED by an illegal immigrant! Where's the punch line in THAT? Talk about poor taste in jokes! Well, Mr. Myers, at least YOU and your demented fans got a laugh out of it. Enjoy it while you can; after your ratings go down the sewer, I doubt if you'll be laughing much then, unless you end up on The View. A lot of sick people there will be delighted to accommodate you and your type of "humor."

While Seth Myers comment was seemingly in bad taste, he was in fact mocking the president more so than the murder victims. Besides, everyone up in arms about Seth Myers should take a moment to remember all the jokes made about the Charlottesville, The Charleston Church Shootings and just about every heinous crime that ever happened. Nothing is sacred and off limits from jokes in America. So please, drop the shock and indignation.

This cynical humor is very popular among the 40% who hate our police, ICE and the US border.

I've heard of Myers and Jimmy Kimmel but have never watched their shows. And this is the reason why. Too bad TV late night talk shows aren't funny anymore. I miss Johnny Carson.

President Trump's politicization of these murders to advocate for a wall reminds me of when people (like myself) similarly politicize murders to advocate for federal gun control laws.

Let Seth Meyers walk around in public without hiding behind security and bodyguards. We’ll see how funny that would be.

He's a loser and was probably horribly and justifiably bullied by kids when he was in school. That is why he has no conscience.

Please don’t let him speak to any families of the victims. They have enough heartache without then moralless, vile, excuse for a human being! That would be like a slap in the face to be faced with his ugly self.

He needs to be fired and never be able to get another job. Making jokes about a hero only gets you blasted! Maybe others will learn from your stupid mistake!

Seth who? I seriously do not know who this guy is, but then again I haven't watched any talk shows for a very long time....just never found any of them all that funny. Johnny Carson and Jay Leno were pretty much the only two I liked.....but getting back to this meyers character, pretty much sounds like a heartless piece of sh*t!!
