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.O'Donnell's Twitter account is private, but here's the screen grab of her tweet, from Mediaite:
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.
It took a week for O'Donnell to apologize.
"Queen of Nice"?
Not very nice at all.
