‘Boundaries’ Star Peter Fonda’s Threatening Barron Trump Tweet Puts Sony Classics Film on Hot Seat

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

Peter Fonda and Sony Pictures Classics are now facing backlash after the actor suggested in a tweet that someone “rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles and see if mother will stand up against the giant a-hole she is married to.”

The tweet has since been deleted, but it did not go unnoticed by the White House.

Barron Trump is of course the son of President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump. Donald Trump Jr. is has asked Sony to take action.

Fonda is set to star alongside Christopher Plummer and Vera Farmiga in “Boundaries.” The film, which is scheduled for release June 22, centers around a woman (Farmiga) who is forced to drive her estranged, pot-dealing, carefree father (Plummer) across country after being kicked out of a nursing home.

Representatives for Sony Pictures Classics did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
