The office of the First Lady called the Secret Service on Peter Fonda after the Hollywood actor called for kidnapping 11-year-old Barron Trump and throwing him in a cage with pedophiles. In a now-deleted series of vulgar tweets, Fonda wrote "WE SHOULD RIP HIM FROM HIS MOTHER'S ARMS AND PUT HIM IN A CAGE WITH PEDOPHILES AND SEE IF MOTHER WILL STAND UP AGAINST THE GIANT ASSHOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO."

Spokesperson for the first lady Stephanie Grisham told The Daily Caller that the Secret Service has been “notified” of the threat.

“The tweet is sick and irresponsible and USSS has been notified,” Grisham said. -Daily Caller

Fonda then went on a tirade against White House officials, including Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

"Maybe we should take her children away and deport her to Arkansas, and giving her children to Stephen Goebbels Miller for safe keeping," Fonda tweeted, referring to White House aide Stephen Miller - largely credited for the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy. 

The actor later apologized, saying in a statement later that he was distraught over children at the border separated from their families (though not so much when Obama did it), and that he "went too far." 

Fonda's vulgar tweets drew heavy criticism over Twitter, with Donald Trump Jr. tweeting "You’re clearly a sick individual and everyone is an internet badass but rather than attack an 11 year old like a bully and a coward why don’t you pick on someone a bit bigger."

Others shared similar sentiments, with some calling for a boycott of Fonda's new movie Boundaries, which comes out on Friday:
