There was backlash directed former NBC executive Mike Sington who suggested on social media that Barron Trump, who had just turned 18, was now “fair game” for criticism.

While the executive walked back the comment and deleted the post, saying he meant Barron was now an adult and open to press scrutiny, critics argued targeting the former president’s son was inappropriate.

“Barron Trump turns 18 today. He’s fair game now,” Sington wrote.

“I posted he was ‘fair game’ now, meaning, as an adult, he’s ‘fair game’ for criticism from the press,” Sington said. “Someone pointed out to me ‘fair game’ could mean fair game to be harmed. I don’t wish physical harm on anyone, so I took it down. I listen to the comments and criticism I receive.”

His turning 18 years old sparked renewed focus on instances where political adversaries had involved or made jokes about the former first son, who generally stayed out of the public eye while his father was in office.

This wasn’t the first time Barron Trump faced criticism from his father’s opponents, as in previous years a law professor, actor, and writer had made disparaging remarks about him.

“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan previously wrote.

Barron Trump “will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” former “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich wrote.

“Barron Trump saw a very long necktie on a heap of expired deli meat in a dumpster. He thought it was his dad & his little heart is breaking,” former “Jeopardy!” host Ken Jennings wrote.
