Actor Peter Fonda has a social media army and the Secret Service on his back after a twisted Twitter call to “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”
The brother of Jane Fonda also called for violence against Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and called White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders a “c—.”
A rep for Fonda told Fox News the actor “wanted to make sure that Melania and Ivanka communicate with the president the dire circumstances of separating mothers and young children.” The rep added on behalf of Fonda, “My response is the move was evil — same as the Pope.”
Donald Trump Jr. stood up for his younger brother, who is 12, calling Fonda’s since-deleted tweet “sick” and asking for Sony Pictures to drop the actor from “Boundaries,” which is due out on Friday. Trump Jr. also called on his followers to go after Fonda on Twitter.
“As an FYI @SonyPictures has a movie with him dropping in a few days. I wonder if they will apply the same rules to @iamfonda that they did to @therealroseanne. I have a strange suspicion that they wont do anything. Please RT, we deserve an answer!,” Trump Jr. tweeted on Wednesday.
Sony Pictures did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.
Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokesperson, called the tweet “sick and irresponsible” in a statement to Fox News and said the United States Secret Service has been notified of Fonda’s threats.
The Oscar-nominated actor didn’t stop with his tweet about President Trump’s young son.
