I made one unforgivable mistake when I was in North Vietnam, and I will go to my grave with this, Jane Fonda says on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
The actress and activist made an infamous trip to North Vietnam in 1972 where she was photographed singing with members of the North Vietnamese military as she sat on an anti-aircraft gun.
She was criticized then and ever since and says she understands the anger.
Fonda says she knew immediately she had made a mistake and has apologized repeatedly, both privately and publicly.
She told OWN program Oprahs Master Class that the event happened on the last day of her visit. She was tired, she said, and didnt want to attend.
I don't know if I was set up or not, she said. I was an adult. I take responsibility for my actions.
The soldiers sang a song and Fonda joined in with her feeble Vietnamese.
As everyone was laughing and singing, Fonda was led to a gun site, where she sat down.
And I was laughing and clapping, and there were pictures taken.

I thought I saw this on 60 minutes, and an interview with one of the POWs. If you could direct me to a legitimate source that debunks this I will be glad to look at it.
However, in the course of that research I found this link, which include this quote from that piece of filth: Fonda said the idea that the POWs she had met in Vietnam had been tortured was "laughable," claiming: "These were not men who had been tortured. These were not men who had been starved. These were not men who had been brainwashed." The POWs who said they had been tortured were "exaggerating, probably for their own self-interest," she asserted.
What a horrid sub-human being. I'm guessing we agree on that...

I remember seeing her come to speak at the Penn State campus circa 1972. She was a true rabble rouser, it was like she was on a crusade trying to convince the students to turn against the war. I remember feeling insulted. One, that she thought the students were so stupid that they needed her to tell them how to think. Two, that my student activity fee was used to pray for her indoctrination tour.
The beer’s on me.
Maybe you’re a lot younger than me - but I remember those quotes when she first made them. She’s a creep.
Actually the mistake was visiting North Vietnam.
