Peter Fonda Says Barron Trump Deserves to Be Ripped From His Mother and That’s Not the Worst of It
The Boundaries actor and brother of Jane Fonda unleashed his uncensored opinion on the Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance policy” in his since-deleted tweets: one of the worst of which that Barron Trump should be taken away from Melania.
“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” Peter Fonda wrote. Not only did the tweet garner him national media attention, it prompted Melania to notify the U.S. Secret Service.
One of Fonda’s representatives 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.” Fonda has since deleted the tweet about Barron and all subsequent ones about his cabinet.
His tweets were a clear response to the Trump administration’s controversial policy which has reportedly separated 2,000 immigrant children from their parents.
Fonda also tweeted about Sarah Huckabee Sanders
The Trump family condemned Fonda’s behavior
Donald Trump Jr., Barron’s older half-brother, called Fonda’s tweet “sick” and called for his removal from his movie due this Friday. “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.
Melania Trump’s spokeswoman offered a statement calling Fonda’s tweet “sick and irresponsible.”
Fonda isn’t the only celebrity critical of the administration’s new policy
Countless celebrities have taken to their social media accounts to state their disapproval of the policy. However, few have done so in the controversial and profane way Fonda chose to.
Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Alyssa Milano, Mark Hamill, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Judd Apatow, Kumail Nanjiani, Piper Perabo and Common have all denounced the policy, CBS News reported.
Kendall Jenner condemned the policy on her social media as well. Her half-sister Kim Kardashian met with the president just weeks ago to argue the case of a woman with nonviolent drug charges and a life sentence in prison.
Jenner shared Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy’s tweet to her Instagram story early on July 20th along with the link to the American Civil Liberties Union’s petition to end the family-separation policy.
“The President of the United States has stolen 2,000 little children from their parents and locked them in cages, to be released only if Congress gives him money to build a wall with Mexico. I’m pretty sure I have that right,” Murphy wrote.
