While her fellow hosts laughed off the comment, Fonda didn’t crack a smile or clarify that the comment was a joke during the show, though she later claimed the comment was “hyperbole.”
Luna identified the comment as a threat to pro-life activists, immediately reporting it to Capitol Police and demanding Fonda and “The View” hosts be held accountable.
