Rosie O'Donnell Apologizes to Melania Trump for Attack on Barron

Rosie O'Donnell took a long time to issue an apology for her role in attacking Barron Trump.

She apologized to Melania Trump on Twitter.

From TMZ:

Rosie O'Donnell has belatedly apologized to Melania Trump for blasting out on social media her 10-year-old son, Barron, might be autistic ... which he is not.

Rosie now says, "I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP - i was insensitive in my RT - i am sorry for the pain i caused - it was not my intent - i am truly sorry."

Melania went ballistic after a YouTuber posted a video suggesting Baron had autism, and Rosie then re-posted the video with the caption, "Barron Trump Autistic?"

TMZ broke the story, Melania hired lawyer Charles Harder, who fired off a letter to the YouTuber telling him if he didn't take the video down he'd sue. He also called out Rosie in the letter, but did not threaten her.
O'Donnell's Twitter account is private, but here's the screen grab of her tweet, from Mediaite:

It took a week for O'Donnell to apologize.

"Queen of Nice"?

Not very nice at all.
