Jane Fonda jabs at QVC over canceled TV appearance
Yahoo News ^ | July 16, 2011 | Yahoo

A new controversy over Oscar winner Jane Fonda's Vietnam War activism caused the actress to come out swinging against home shopping TV network QVC on Saturday, over what she described as its caving in to "extremist" pressure to cancel her appearance.

In a blog posting on showbusiness website TheWrap.com, Fonda wrote that she was scheduled to appear on QVC on Saturday to introduce her book "Prime Time" about aging and life cycles.

But the network, Fonda wrote, reported receiving a flood of angry calls regarding her anti-war activism of the 1960s and 1970s, and it decided to cancel Fonda's appearance.

Four decades ago, the American actress angered Vietnam War supporters who gave her the nickname "Hanoi Jane" for her 1972 visit to the capital of North Vietnam at the height of the conflict. At the time, she posed for photos showing her sitting atop a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun, and she remains an object of derision by some U.S. veterans and others.

Fonda, 73, has in the past expressed regret about those images, and in her post at The Wrap she took aim at QVC and her critics.

"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.

QVC acknowledged Fonda's appearance was canceled, but said it was because of a "programing change."

"It's not unusual to have a schedule change with our shows and guests with little or no notice," QVC spokesman Paul Capelli said in a statement.

But no regret about her traitorous activism?

QVC should pay for having the temerity to even have her on..
Pay that is with lack of sales.. and viewership..

Somebody at QVC is brain dead.. or liberal..
QVC wouldn’t think of having Ann Coulter sell her books there..
BUT Fonda is OK!!.. I think not.. let them sell their trinkets to the fellow travelers..

Being a VietNam vet I have one thing to say.
- Stick a broom stick up her royal A$s and place her on a fire and hill and leave her there.
