A writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert came under fire from both liberals and conservatives Tuesday night; viciously mocking former First Lady and American icon Barbara Bush just hours after her passing.

Jen Spyra, a Colbert staffer, blasted the late wife of President George H.W. Bush on social media late Tuesday, saying “RIP Barbara Bush, the only woman who was 92 for 30 years.”

The backlash on Twitter was immediate, with Democrats and Republicans calling-out the comedian over her ill-advised words.

“Wow! That is incredibly insensitive and rude,” wrote one user.

“Why is it so difficult for a leftie to act like a human being? I think you meant to send condolences to the family&friends of Barbara Bush for the loss of their beloved wife,mother,grandmother and friend. There, now the next time an exemplary American dies, you know what to say,” added another.
