Who is Sarah Beattie? Born on 4 November 1992, Sarah Beattie is a 29-year-old American actress, comedian and famously claimed to be a writer for “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). She is famous on social media, especially Instagram and Twitter, for her witty writings. She runs a blog as part of her hustle to make ends meet by all means.
Appearances can be deceiving because while Sarah may come across as vain, she is multi-talented and has a good singing voice. However, only close friends and family members get to enjoy her voice because she is not very comfortable with singing in public.

Early life and education
Sarah Beattie was born on 4 November 1992 in Hawaii, US, to American parents. We do not know if she had any siblings while growing up as the information is not available about much of her childhood. She spent most of her childhood in Hawaii until she graduated high school in 2007/2008.
After high school, Beattie moved to neighbouring Florida for higher education. She enrolled in the Florida State University and eventually earned her first degree in English Literature. Writing has always been her hobby as a child, and it easily turned into a passion in her adulthood. Now, it is her career.
Acting and tv shows
Sarah Beattie began acting back in 2013 when she first appeared on the crime drama television series “The Fall”. She played Olivia Spector and had recurring roles for 15 episodes spanning 2013 and 2016, when the show ended after its third season. Despite not starring as one of the main characters, her performance was commended. At the 2014 Irish Film and Television Awards, the series won Best Television Drama among several awards during the period it aired on BBC Two.
In 2018, Beattie was credited as the writer of 7 episodes of “Frankie Boyle’s New World Order” comedy television programme, a show presented by Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle.
While she claimed to have been a writer for “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), we have not been able to confirm this, and it led to a controversy that we will address in the other parts of this article.
Beattie began her internet career just as she entered college when she joined Twitter in 2009. Her witty tweets and snippy comments began getting her attention in trickles at the time. She was also sharing some of her writings online with her followers.
Then, she also created an Instagram account in 2012 and took to sharing funny content as well. In addition to this, Beattie was also posting raunchy and racy photos of herself on Instagram. These posts further helped to advance her internet fame in those early days.
Most of her content was for adult consumption, and it made her a go-to person for jokes that are not meant for children. Her followership consistently grew over the years to the point that she has become something of an internet celebrity. She even got featured in an adult magazine in Japan.

Writing and “Money Shot” comic
Undoubtedly, Sarah Beattie likely has several other writing works which she does not disclose for reasons best known to her. However, in 2019, the world got to see her first major written project. She shared the news that she has been working with author Tim Seeley in writing a comic book.
Knowing her, it was not just any book as it turned out to be an erotic project. “Money Shot” comic started as a two-part graphic novel about scientists having intimate relations with aliens ‘for the glory of mankind—and money’. The two writers later decided to make it into a comic book that has now reached 14 episodes.
She also has a 30-minute vegetarian cookbook series with titles like “30-Minute Vegetarian Thai Cookbook,” “30 Minute Vegetarian Turkish Cookbook,” and so on.
DC “Superman vs. Lobo” comics
In March 2021, DC Comics Blog reported that superhero film studio, DC, announced a new comic book by Tom Steeley, Sarah Beattie, and artist Mirka Andolfo. The blog says that it will be a three-part comic series featuring Clark Kent (Superman) and Lobo.
First-lookers say that the comic will be ‘hilarious’ and cost $6.99 for buyers in the US. Also, given Steeley and Beattie’s reputation, the coming comic will be for readers above the age of 17.
“Superman vs. Lobo will retail for $6.99 US for 48 pages and will carry DC’s Black Label content descriptor, indicating content appropriate for readers ages 17+,” DC Comics Blog wrote. DC will release it on 24 August 2021 if everything goes according to plan.
As many influential social media users already know, nothing sells better than controversies, and Sarah Beattie has had her fair share. It is not like she has even stopped. One of the longest-running controversies she has been involved in is her view of religion.
While she has not claimed to be an atheist, she loves gothic horror that involves adult content. It has pitted her against religious conservative Americans many times. Her Instagram posts usually feature such gothic themes.

In addition to this, her views on abortion, and her pro-choice stand have also made her a target of trolls. She also trolls them back in equal measure via her social media posts.
Nick Sandmann, MAGA, and Nathan Phillips incident
In January 2019, students from Covington Catholic High School, who were supporting then-president Donald Trump Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, encountered protesting Native American protesters at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC.
The protesters were drumming and dancing in protest to Donald Trump’s wall while the school-age youths were chanting in support of Trump. The opposing parties eventually came to a standoff and stare down between student, Nick Sandmann, and Native American Indian, Nathan Phillips, which was captured in a 4-minute video.
According to reports, the students were mocking the protesters, but the incident didn’t turn violent. Another video showed Phillips crying as he recounted the insult and threats they received from the students.
Within an hour, the video was trending online in the US. On 19 January, Beattie waded into the controversy by offering an intimate reward to anyone who would punch the student, Sandmann, in the face. Her tweet immediately went viral as many already disliked ‘the MAGA kid’, Sandmann’s internet moniker.
With her newfound fame, Sarah Beattie quickly plugged in a claim; she said she was one of “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) writers.
“Saturday Night Live” (SNL) denies Sarah Beattie
It is unclear why Beattie made the claim as it would only have given the “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) show unsolicited fame. Perhaps she was shooting her shot for a job. We have not found an explanation for her action yet, but it seemed to backfire.
After she announced her affiliation with “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), Trump supporters started tweeting about boycotting the show. They were offended by Beattie’s tweet and chose to punish her alleged employers. Josh Patten, one of the senior writers for SNL, tweeted that Sarah Beattie did not work for the show. He added that the media outfit would publish a list of its writers to clear the matter. Although, it appears that it never published it.
We are not certain who is lying here because in a 2017 article, 2 years before the incident, Vogue also said that Sarah Beattie is a contributing writer for “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). It had listed her among the “5 Comedians Who Might Help You Stay Sane for the Next 4 Years”.
