Veterans Protest Jane Fonda In Maryland


Jane Fonda arrived in Maryland for a speaking engagement on Friday, but when she got there she quickly realized part of the crowd wasn't there to listen.

The 77-year-old was at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick when she was confronted by about 50 veterans holding signs with the phrase "Forgive? Maybe. Forget? Never."

All over this decades-old photo where the actress is seen sitting among Viet Cong soldiers during her trip to the country in 1972.

The photo earned her the hateful nickname "Hanoi Jane."

In an episode of "Oprah's Master Class" from 2013 she called the photo "an unforgivable mistake."

"On my last day, I was taken to a military site. It's not something I wanted to do. I was an emotional wreck by now. I don't know if I was set up or not. I'm an adult. I take responsibility for my actions."

But despite numerous public apologies, veterans still take issue with it today.

"She's a traitor. She was treasonous in her conduct during the Vietnam War and detrimental to the entire war cause."

According to The Frederick News-Post, Fonda addressed the crowd during her presentation and said she understands their anger and is hopeful for an open dialogue with veterans.
