Jane Fonda spoke about the protests while wearing Black Panther couture

The Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration

Jane Fonda was a radical in the ‘60s and ‘70s. She worked with Black Panthers, she worked to end the Vietnam War (whoops), and she’s been active in reproductive rights, civil rights and social justice causes for decades. Some people might question her actual causes or opinions, but she’s truly put her money, reputation and body where her mouth has always been. So Don Lemon at CNN did a video-link interview with Fonda last night to talk about the ongoing protests:

Some people were questioning Jane’s Black Panther couture (the beret!!) and some were questioning why we needed to hear from Jane Fonda at this very moment. Thankfully, it became an educational moment for how Fonda has always been an ally to disenfranchised people and disenfranchised communities.

    Auntie Jane gets the good chair and the big piece of chicken.

    I’ve loved her always, but I discovered I loved her even more during the quarantine when I started to do her workouts, not just because they f-in work, but because she had a diverse “cast” in them! Yes, the bodies were all the same when it comes to size, but for the time when they were shot, I found them really diverse.

      my mom was an aerobics instructor when I was little and she always said Jane was the best and I’ve been doing her workouts since forever. Gluteus are thankful still at 35. Jane has always been one of my faves, along with Field and Tomlin.

    Love her. I read her autobiography years ago and she’s so honest and true.

    She’s the real deal. some of her eco stuff I give the side eye.. but she knows, sees and recognizes her privilege.. she speaks out and lends a voice and anything else that is needed. She stands up and defends and calls people out. She is an ally in the sense , she doesn’t expect the marginalized people do the heavy emotional labour , when all we want is to live , live free and have half a chance. I have a lot of respect and admiration for her.

    I love Jane’s activism. And her acting. But am I the only one thinking she could also be hiding her roots? I know she’s gone gray but that could be aided by a colorist and not all one seemless look (?) And I, of course, could be completely superficial……….
