Jane Fonda QVC

Jane Fonda QVC, A new controversy over Vietnam Oscar winner Jane Fonda’s activism war caused the actress to come out swinging against the home shopping television network QVC on Saturday, more than what she described as yielding to the “extreme” pressure to cancel her appearance.
In a blog on the entertainment website TheWrap.com, Fonda wrote that he was scheduled to appear on QVC on Saturday to present her book “Prime Time” on aging and life cycles.
But the network, wrote Fonda, reported receiving a flood of angry calls about her activism against the war in 1960 and 1970, and decided to cancel the appearance of Fonda.
Four decades ago, American actress infuriated supporters of the war in Vietnam gave him the nickname “Hanoi Jane” for her 1972 visit to the capital of North Vietnam at the height of the conflict. At that time, posed for pictures showing seated on a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun, and remains an object of derision by some U.S. veterans and others.
Fonda, 73, has spent the regret expressed by these images, and their place in the envelope is aimed at QVC and its critics.
“I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC gave in to such pressure to madness by some extremist groups, well funded and organized political,” wrote Fonda.
QVC recognized Fonda’s appearance was canceled, but said it was due to a “schedule change.”
“It’s not unusual to have a schedule change with the shows and clients with little or no notice,” said spokesman Paul Capelli QVC in a statement.
“I can not speak to the comments of Ms. Fonda, other than to confirm that a change in the program resulted in her not appear today.”
In 2005, a man who said he was angry at the time of the Vietnam War-actions spit Fonda at a book signing in Kansas City, Missouri.
“In short, this has gone on too long, spreading lies about me!” Fonda wrote in TheWrap.com. “… I love my country. I’ve never done anything to hurt my country or have men and women who have fought and are fighting for us.”
The daughter of film legend Henry Fonda later, the actress recently starred in the 2007 film “Georgia Rule.” She won two Oscars for her roles in the films “Coming Home” (1978) and “Klute” (1971).
