Bad news is rolling in for Peter Fonda. In the wake of his call to place President Donald Trump’s 12-year-old son “in a cage with pedophiles,” the actor’s newest flick has taken a nosedive at the box office.
According to The Wrap, the Sony Pictures Classics flick “Boundaries” appeared in a grand total of five theaters over the weekend and took in only $30,395. The film also faired poorly with the critics, receiving a dismal 58% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Last week, Fonda was widely condemned for his vicious and sexist tweets attacking women in the Trump Administration and, even more disturbingly, Trump’s pre-teen child.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Fonda wrote, “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 A**HOLE SHE IS MARRIED TO. 90 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE STREETS ON THE SAME WEEKEND IN THE COUNTRY. F***.”
In other unhinged tweets, the 78-year-old — seemingly looking to outflank Samantha Bee as Most Sexist — called White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen “g***es,” which he proudly stated is “much worse than c***.”
The actor also said Sanders should have her children ripped from her and given “to Stephen Goebbels Miller for safe keeping,” and called for the stripping and whipping of Nielsen. For good measure, he also directed his followers in The Resistance to dox ICE agents and to find out where their children go to school and harass them.
“Boundaries” is directed by Shana Feste and stars Vera Farmiga, playing a single mother named Laura, and Christopher Plummer, as her “pot-selling father” who “comes back into her life after he’s kicked out of his retirement home.” According to The Wrap, “Laura agrees to drive him south to live with her sister in Los Angeles but, along the way, Jack convinces his grandson, Henry, to help him sell off the rest of his marijuana stash to some old friends, including one played by Fonda.”
