Actor Peter Fonda targeted President Donald Trump’s 12-year-old son Barron in a late-night Twitter rant about the separation of immigrant families at the U.S. border.
“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles,” the actor wrote in an all-caps rant that he later deleted. “And see if mother will stand up against the giant a–hole she is married to.”
The U.S. Secret Service told TheWrap that is aware of the tweet but declined to offer any additional comments.
Melania Trump’s spokesperson was quick to denounce Fonda: “The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified.”
It’s more than a protest! 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend works. I can’t be the organizer for they’ll arrest me for conspiracy to commit sedition. This must be like a spontaneous event without seeming to be organized by me and we have to make this happen NOW https://t.co/be9IDUN15c— Peter Henry Fonda (@iamfonda) June 20, 2018
