Peter Fonda found his humanity laying around in the back of his dusty old closet today and put it back on:
FOX NEWS – Actor Peter Fonda has issued an apology for his “inappropriate and vulgar” tweet about the president’s son, Baron Trump, in which he called for him to be “ripped” from his mother and put in a “cage with pedophiles.”
After some since-deleted tweets the 78-year-old Oscar-winner made about the Trump Administration’s policy of separating children from their families at the southern border gained negative attention and were flagged by the Secret Service, he’s issued an apology and brief explanation for his rhetoric.
“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,” he wrote in a statement provided to Fox News. “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.”
As far as apologies go, that’s not bad. I’ve certainly seen worse Hollywood apologies.
Honestly though, I still wonder if he was drunk tweeting when he did it, considering how inappropriate and vulgar those tweets were.
I checked his Twitter account and he hasn’t posted his apology there yet.
