The Politics Of Shopping With Fonda
Jane Fonda claims she was booted from QVC because of a nearly 40-year-old political scandal.
Actress Jane Fonda says a scheduled appearance on the shopping network QVC to promote her new book Prime Time: Making the Most of Your Life was canceled because the network caved in to political pressure.
Back in the early '70s, Fonda became a vocal opponent of the Vietnam War, earning herself the nickname Hanoi Jane. Now Fonda says her past is causing problems in her present.
Fonda wrote on her website:
A QVC spokesperson confirmed Fonda's appearance was canceled but was mum on the reason why. "I can't speak to Ms. Fonda's comments, other than to confirm that a change in scheduling resulted in her not appearing yesterday," the spokesperson told TMZ.
Fonda is furious. "I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us."
