Actor Peter Fonda’s new movie, “Boundaries,” reportedly made a measly $30,395 after opening this weekend. The box office bomb comes one week after the actor launched a vile attack on President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and the first lady.
The actor called for the president’s 12-year-old son to be kidnapped and put in a “cage with pedophiles.”
“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,” Fonda tweeted.
The actor later deleted his tweet and apologized for the “vulgar” remarks.
“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,” Fonda said in a statement. “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.”
Many called for the boycott of the movie:
