Melania Trump has called on the Secret Service to investigate a member of Hollywood royalty—two-time Oscar-nominated actor Peter Fonda—after threats he made to kidnap her 12-year-old son, Barron.
In apparent response to reports that the children of illegal immigrants had been separated from their families while attempting to cross the border, Fonda—who is son of actor Henry Fonda and brother of actress Jane Fonda—alarmingly tweeted:
“WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL [sic] STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT A**HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLIO PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F***.”
His inflammatory tweet could land him in legal trouble: apparently, the Secret Service is already investigating his threats.
“The tweet is sick and irresponsible and [Secret Service] has been notified,” said Mrs. Trump’s spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham.
Fonda also called to liberals to target the children of Border Patrol agents—including “surround[ing] their schools” to “scare the f*** out of them.”
Additionally, he promoted violence against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and called for the kidnapping of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ children.
Fonda has since deleted the tweets.

Sony Pictures, which is releasing Fonda’s newest film “Boundaries,” condemned the actor for his remarks—calling them “abhorrent, reckless, and dangerous.”
But in stark contrast to rival Disney’s swift cancellation of conservative-leaning “Roseanne” after Roseanne Barr’s racially-tinged tweets, Sony still plans to release the film on Friday.
