Jane Fonda said that a cable shopping channel cancelled her scheduled appearance to promote a new book at the behest of angry phone callers threatening a boycott. The Academy Award-winning actress was due to appear on QVC today to promote her new book about aging, "Prime Time."
In a blog posted today on her website, Fonda wrote that QVC received a lot of calls Friday criticizing her for her opposition to the Vietnam War, and threatening to boycott the show if she were allowed to appear.
"I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well-funded and organized political extremist groups," Fonda wrote, "and that they did it without talking to me first.

We vets never forgive or forget!
The arrogance of her. If losing a few dollars is the only punishment for what she did, she should get down on her hands and knees and thank God.
I am deeply ashamed that such trash was part my generation’s youth.
My personal feelings would prolly get me banned were I to put them in cold ink.
Yep, it must have been all of those “blue eyed” bastards that caused the cancellation. What a shame. Sarcasm on.
Ironically, getting down on hands and knees and thanking God was exactly her proscription for nations
who might turn Communist-—she saw no reason why they would chose anything else. Maybe you were making a reference to that.....
Hanoi Jane doesn’t understand that the QVC audience is most likely made up primarily of the generation that DOES remember her treason. Also likely many of them lost someone in that war or were maimed for life in that war. She can never hide from what she has done with this group. She needs to go hawk her wares at MTV.
I meant to say "gravesite", but I like "stie" better.
not on this website they wouldn’t... :)
Does she still think it’s merely for opposing the war?
She did a lot more than oppose the war...
She should be tried for treason/sedition. And I will volunteer to sit on the jury. And then she should be hanged.
anyway, perhaps your chickens are just coming home to roost, girl.
That's kind of like saying Tokyo Rose is often criticized for "her opposition to World War II."
I am not a vet and I will never forget that person’s actions. She should have been tried for treason. One of my high school friends died over there. A wonderful man fighting for the country he loved. He was an only child and his parents lost it after he was killed.
Guess Hanoi Jane thinks that freedom of expression is only for war protesters. Her obituary should feature the fact that she was sympathizing with our enemies during time of war, and while our soldiers were being held prisoner in the “Hanoi Hilton.” Shame on her forever.
My feelings exactly. I used to have the bumper sticker that said “Boycott Jane Fonda, American Traitor Bitch”. Wish I still did.
So what’s wrong with boycotts?
