On Wednesday, actor Peter Fonda seemingly called for the rape of President Donald Trump’s youngest son. “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT A**HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO” he wrote via Twitter.
The star, who is the younger sibling to Jane Fonda, AKA “Hanoi Jane,” has since deleted the tweet, and other vulgar tweets about ICE agents and members of the Trump Administration, and has issued a statement addressing the matter.
“I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television,” reads the statement from his rep, Monique Moss. “Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught over the situation with children separated from their families at the border, but I went way too far. It was wrong and I should not have done it. I immediately regretted it and sincerely apologize to the family for what I said and any hurt my words have caused.”
Fonda, 78, also rifled out tweets which called for the ICE agents to be doxxed and their children harassed at school and called White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen “g***es,” which he proudly stated is “much worse than c***.” He also called for the whipping of a naked Nielson and for Sanders’ children to be ripped from her and given “to Stephen Goebbels Miller for safe keeping.”

First Lady Melania Trump reportedly notified the Secret Service of the tweets.
Barron’s older half-brother, Donald Trump Jr., hit back at Fonda following the disturbing threats against the 12-year-old and raised the question to Sony if they would stand by their actor or give him the so-called “Roseanne treatment.”
“You’re clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet badass but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don’t you pick on someone a bit bigger,” he wrote.
Sony Pictures Classics has since come out to condemn Fonda’s “abhorrent, reckless and dangerous” tweets but maintains that they still plan to release their new film that features the actor.
