Peter Fonda's tweet suggesting that Barron Trump be placed in a cage with pedophiles landed him in hot water. The actor has officially apologized for his tweets.


On June 20, 2018, Fonda's representative apologized for the since-deleted tweet in an interview with reporters from The Blast.

In a statement, the 78-year-old actor said: “I tweeted something highly inappropriate and vulgar about the president and his family in response to the devastating images I was seeing on television."

“Like many Americans, I am very impassioned and distraught over the situation with children separated from their families at the border, but I went way too far. It was wrong and I should not have done it. I immediately regretted it and sincerely apologize to the family for what I said and any hurt my words have caused," he added.

On June 19, 2018, the actor, who was a part of the counterculture of the 1960s, took to Twitter to rant about Donald Trump and his controversial US immigration policy.


This policy has resulted in the separation of undocumented children from their parents who are attempting to illegally enter the US.

According to Pop Culture, in under two months, the "zero tolerance" policy on immigration of Trump administration has now detained more than 2,000 children.

"We should 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. 90 million people in the streets on the same weekend in the country. F---," Fonda wrote in a tweet.

He quickly faced harsh criticisms for the tweet, which included a tweet from the President's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who said the actor was “a bully and a coward” for picking on the pre-teen.

"You're clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet bada-- but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don't you pick on someone a bit bigger. LMK," Trump Jr. tweeted.

Recently, the President announced that he would sign an executive order to keep migrant families together.
