By now, you have undoubtedly heard the disgusting things aging actor Peter Fonda said about the Trump family on Twitter. He apologized but it was too little and too late. He is in a movie that comes out this weekend and the studio is scrambling to save it.
The Daily Caller reports:
SONY PICTURES DESTROYS PETER FONDA IN STATEMENT
Sony Pictures has released a statement on Peter Fonda, the actor who has sent vile, disturbing threats to women and children associated with the Trump administration.
Sony Pictures Classics, which will be releasing a movie co-starring Fonda in a matter of days, said in a statement sent to The Daily Caller that Fonda’s comments were “abhorrent, reckless and dangerous” and that “we condemn them completely.” The statement goes on to explain that Fonda has only a “minor role” in the film and the studio will not be pulling it in fairness to the other actors in the ensemble cast. Sony’s full statement:
“Peter Fonda’s comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely. It is important to note that Mr. Fonda plays a very minor role in the film. To pull or alter this film at this point would unfairly penalize the filmmaker Shana Feste’s accomplishment, the many actors, crew members and other creative talent that worked hard on the project. We plan to open the film as scheduled this weekend, in a limited release of five theaters.”
It will be fascinating to see how this movie does at the box office. We’re guessing it won’t do well.
