One of the big stories of the last week involved actress Rosie O'Donnell and the son of the president-elect, Barron Trump. After O'Donnell questioned whether or not Barron had autism, it quickly resulted in backlash from the future First Family and their supporters.

Rosie responds

In a tweet sent out just prior to Thanksgiving, Rosie O'Donnell asked, "Barron Trump Autistic?" The former co-host on "The View" said that if Barron Trump was suffering from autism, that it would be an "amazing opportunity" to bring attention to condition.

Along with her comments, O'Donnell also attached a viral YouTube video that showed various clips of young Barron that made it appear as if he was autistic. When Melania Trump was informed of what was making its way around the internet, the future First Lady was "outraged." Melania hired a lawyer and threatened to sue the maker of the video, who promptly removed it from YouTube, before issuing a public apology.

As seen on her offical Twitter feed on Thursday morning, as reported by Mediaite and TMZ on December 1, O'Donnell is answering back.

"I was insensitive in my RT- i am sorry for the pain i caused," Rosie O'Donnell tweeted early Thursday morning, before adding, "it was not my intent - i am truly sorry." Not long after the tweet was sent out, O'Donnell's Twitter account was made private, possibly due to the threatening messages she was receiving from supporters of the Trump family.

Donald Trump

O'Donnell recently found out that he daughter was diagnosed with autism, which has become a main cause of curiosity for the actress.

Critics of Rosie O'Donnell think her questioning of Barron Trump was nothing more than an excuse to fire back at Donald Trump, who she has had a well-documented history with.

During the first Republican presidential debate in August 2015, Trump used O'Donnell as the butt of his joke, as he admitted to referring to her as a "fat pig."
