Peter Fonda didn’t just offend the White House with his recent Twitter rant — he’s also ticked off ICE, who calls the actor’s tweet about protesting at agents’ homes “unconscionable.”

Liz Johnson, Assistant Director for ICE Public Affairs, tells The Blast, “People can disagree on policy, but it is unconscionable to target our employees and advocate violence against federal law enforcement officers, who put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe.”

Johnson concludes, “This kind of rhetoric is reckless and irresponsible, and potentially puts at risk those who have taken an oath to uphold the law and protect public safety.”

In his tweet about ICE, Fonda wrote, “WE SHOULD HACK THIS SYSTEM, GET THE ADDRESSES OF THE ICE AGENTS CBP AGENTS AND SURROUND THEIR HOMES IN PROTEST. WE SHOULD FIND OUT WHAT SCHOOLS THEIR CHILDREN GO TO AND SURROUND THE SCHOOLS IN PROTEST. THESE AGENTS ARE DOING THIS CUZ THEY WANT TO DO IT. THEY LIKE DOING THIS. F—.”

As The Blast first reported, Fonda apologized on Wednesday for his tweet about locking Barron Trump up in his cage, calling it “highly inappropriate and vulgar.”

The Secret Service tells The Blast they are “aware of the Tweet made by Mr. Fonda.  As a matter of practice, we do not comment on matters involving protective intelligence.”
