Earlier this week, legendary actor Peter Fonda decided to go on some sort of odd political rant over Trump’s immigration policies, commenting that the president’s son, Barron, should be “caged with pedophiles.”
Sony Pictures, who is releasing a new film by the actor, has released a statement about Fonda’s tirade and they totally crush him for it. He deserves every single word of this.
Sony Pictures Classics, which will be releasing a movie co-starring Fonda in a matter of days, said in a statement sent to The Daily Caller that Fonda’s comments were “abhorrent, reckless and dangerous” and that “we condemn them completely.” The statement goes on to explain that Fonda has only a “minor role” in the film and the studio will not be pulling it in fairness to the other actors in the ensemble cast. Sony’s full statement:Advertisement - story continues below
“Peter Fonda’s comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely. It is important to note that Mr. Fonda plays a very minor role in the film. To pull or alter this film at this point would unfairly penalize the filmmaker Shana Feste’s accomplishment, the many actors, crew members and other creative talent that worked hard on the project. We plan to open the film as scheduled this weekend, in a limited release of five theaters.”
Fonda’s manager Alan Somers sent The Daily Caller an apology from Fonda, blaming the vulgar tweet on the images of children on migrant the U.S. border. After the threat against the president’s son, spokeswoman for the first lady Stephanie Grisham told The Daily Caller that the Secret Service has been “notified” of the tweet.
Fonda also tweeted his support for the public caging and rape of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, saying she should be “pilloried in Lafayette Square naked and whipped by passersby while being filmed for posterity.”
This guy is a real classless human being, isn’t he folks? It truly seems like Fonda snapped and had some sort of mental breakdown that he decided to post publicly for everyone under the sun to see.
Really, if Sony Pictures wants to be consistent, they should pull Fonda’s film and refuse to release it. After all, Roseanne Barr’s show was cancelled for a careless choice of words. Why not Fonda’s film? He’s surely not much of a box office draw these days anyway.
