A Canadian television comedy writer was forced to apologize this week after he appeared to threaten Donald Trump Jr.’s 4-year-old daughter on Twitter.
This is exactly the kind of violence that has been inspired by #PeterFonda’s tweet. The individual making this suggestive terrorist threat against the granddaughter of the President is a “TV writer,” which sadly makes sense in today’s twisted world of Hollywood. pic.twitter.com/i08vXZItGo

“Don’t worry, we’re coming for Chloe, too,” Pat Dussault tweeted Wednesday morning to the president’s eldest son.
The tweet was deleted, but not before actor James Woods snapped a screenshot and notified the Secret Service. Mr. Trump Jr. retweeted both of Mr. James’ messages condemning Mr. Dussault.
Mr. Dussault later posted an apology to Twitter, saying he let his emotions concerning President Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy get the better of him.
“I sincerely apologize to Donald Trump Jr. & his family for the reckless tweet I posted earlier today,” Mr. Dussault wrote. “My careless words were mine alone, and do not reflect the values or beliefs of any individual or organization associated with me. Overwhelmed by recent events at the U.S. border, I let my emotions get the best of me, and made a failed, totally inappropriate attempt at humor. I was wrong and I am truly sorry.”
Mr. Dussault’s statement came the same day actor Peter Fonda was forced to apologize for tweeting that 12-year-old first son Barron Trump should be “ripped” from his mother’s arms and placed in a cage with “pedophiles.”
