Not everyone famous is blessed with great intellect. Or even common sense. Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem appeared on Chris Hayes’ show on MSNBC. Where the three ladies struck up a conversation about Harvey Weinstein’s thirty-year rape-frenzy. Hanoi Jane has a theory as to why the scandal stayed under wraps for so long. It’s because we’re all a bunch of racists.
Jane Fonda has weighed in again about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. The iconic actress, who currently stars on Netflix‘s Grace & Frankie, attended MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes where she acted as a spokesperson the Women’s Media Center. Gloria Steinem was also in attendance. Once there, according to Vulture, the actress spoke of the scandal that continues to rock Hollywood.
“It feels like something has shifted,” the actress said. “It’s too bad that it’s probably because so many of the women that were assaulted by Harvey Weinstein are famous and white and everybody knows them. This has been going on a long time to black women and other women of color and it doesn’t get out quite the same.”
Jane and her Hollywood cohorts working overtime to keep the story out of the news had nothing to do with it. Just like the Vietcong had nothing to do with shooting Americans out of the sky.
Weinstein’s rape-acious extracurricular activities are top news. Not just because of the crimes themselves. But, because of the mass decades-long cover-up by Weinstein’s peers. Jane included.
Jane Fonda knew about Harvey’s rapey ways and kept it to herself for an entire year. So, I guess she didn’t care about the women of color either. If we’re going to throw racist accusations, maybe Jane here should stand before a mirror.
I wonder if Jane picked up this deflecting technique from George Clooney. Her pull of the race card is a desperate attempt at taking the heat off herself by turning us into the villains.
But, we know who the real villains are:
