Last Wednesday, Peter Fonda called for Barron Trump to be “ripped” from his mother Melania’s arms and put in a cage “with pedophiles.” Just one week later, the liberal actor was slapped with a major reality check at his own movie premiere.
In a tweet sent out last Wednesday, Peter Fonda called for kidnapping Melania and Donald Trump’s son, Barron. “WE SHOULD RIP BARRON TRUMP FROM HIS MOTHER’S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO,” the actor wrote.
Fonda’s Twitter meltdown was ill-timed, to say the least, with Sony Pictures about to release a film in which he plays a supporting role. Now, the liberal actor and the motion picture giant are learning just what a huge mistake it was, as the ratings for the film, titled “Boundaries,” are in. It ain’t looking pretty.
Sony Pictures released a film starring Peter Fonda this week, even after the actor went on an unhinged, sexist, disturbing rant against President Trump’s family and members of his administration.
The film bombed at the box office as audiences and critics alike gave it a thumbs down. The film, “Boundaries,” starring Fonda in a supporting role earned just over $30,000 since it’s release. [Source: The Daily Caller]
“Boundaries” has just a 60 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which offers this synopsis of the plot: “LAURA (Vera Farmiga) is a single mother living in Seattle, who has a constant need to put others & animals before her. When her estranged, criminally-minded father JACK (Christopher Plummer) is kicked out of his retirement home, Laura agrees to drive him down the coast to live with her sister JoJo (Kristen Schaal) in LA.”
“Along for the ride is her bright but troubled son HENRY, and an assortment of animal charity cases,” adds the film review website. “Without telling Laura, Jack convinces Henry to help him sell off his copious supply of marijuana at every stop of their journey, resulting in unexpected reunions with old friends and family.”
If you think that sounds like a waste of your money and 104 minutes of your time, you’re not the only one.
After it made headlines in Hollywood for the wrong reasons, Sony Pictures Classics’ “Boundaries” is off to a tepid start at the indie box office, as it opened on five screens this weekend. Directed by Shana Feste and starring Vera Farmiga and Christopher Plummer, the film has made $30,395 for a per screen average of $6,079.
This past week, Peter Fonda, who has a minor role in the film, posted an angry Twitter rant aimed towards President Donald Trump and his wife and son, Melania and Barron, that was a knee-jerk response to the White House’s family separation policy towards undocumented migrants and asylum seekers.

The American people are entirely fed-up with out-of-touch actors who think they can wield unwarranted attacks on conservatives, and then expect the supporters of those conservatives to shell out their own hard-earned cash to see their movies. If Peter Fonda and his cronies — many of whom have made the same mistake — were smart, they would keep their big, liberal mouths shut. It’s one thing to have an opinion, but it’s quite another to alienate a large portion of your fanbase simply to attack those who don’t agree with you.
