Peter Fonda, star of the 60’s film “Easy Rider,” and nothing else worth remembering, has passed away at the age of 79.
Actor Peter Fonda, who was best known for the 1960s counterculture classic “Easy Rider,” has died at age 79.
Fonda helped to write and produce the 1969 biker film and starred in it with Dennis Hopper. It instantly became a lasting symbol of the 1960s counterculture.
His family says Fonda died Friday morning at 11:05 a.m. at his Los Angeles home, surrounded by family members. They said the cause of death was respiratory failure due to lung cancer.
While many people will remember Fonda from “Easy Rider,” I will always remember the time he attacked an 11-year old boy.
“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—,” Fonda wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted.
Yes, I know; “If you have nothing nice to say, blah, blah, blah.” F**k him, he’s dead. Good riddance.
