The Secret Service has been alerted to a threat against the President’s family by actor Peter Fonda.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Jane Fonda’s little bro tweeted a call to harm the President’s youngest son.
“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” the actor wrote.
The tweet was apparently in reference to some kids being separated from their law-breaking parents at the southern border.
A spokesperson for Fonda told Fox News, he “wanted to make sure that Melania and Ivanka communicate with the president the dire circumstances of separating mothers and young children.”
The big brother of Barron Trump, who is 12, Donald Trump Jr., came to his defense on Twitter, and called out Sony Pictures. Sony has a film featuring Fonda to be released 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!,” Don Jr. wrote.
Fonda, 78, has a history of violent and crude remarks made about White House officials. He has called Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders “cunt” and a “gash,” saying that “gash” is much worse than “cunt.”
He called Sanders a “lying gash” and said her children should be taken away and given to Trump adviser Stephen Miller “for safe keeping.” He’s also compared Miller to Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels.
Of Nielsen, he advocated violence and sexual assault against her, saying she “should be put in a cage and poked at by passersby. The gash should be pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed,” he wrote on Twitter.
A spokesperson for First Lady Melania Trump told Fox News the tweet was “sick and irresponsible”and the United States Secret Service has been notified of Fonda’s threats.
Sony Pictures has not commented on the threats.
