Jane Fonda Just Revealed This Brutally Honest Truth About Harvey Weinstein’s Sexual Assault Victims

Actress, activist, and philanthropist Jane Fonda has never been afraid of saying what’s on her mind. In the 1970s, she was such a fierce proponent of anti-Vietnam War sentiment that she was nicknamed “Hanoi Jane” by the press and castigated by the United States government. A member of the Maryland state legislature even had this to say of her: “I wouldn’t want to kill her, but I wouldn’t mind if you cut her tongue off.”

Weinstein, who has sexually harassed and assaulted at least 58 women (to date), has opened the floodgates of sexual harassment claims across multiple industries and spurred the hashtag #Metoo to trend on social media.

The allegations became so pervasive, Fonda said, because the victims – excluding Lupita Nyong’o – “are famous and white and everybody knows them.”

“It feels like something has shifted,” she 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.”

Twitter user @davis1988will accused Fonda of playing the race card, which, one, we’re not even sure how, considering Fonda is white.  

Her accusations are merely the latest in a long history of sexual assault and pedophilia accusations against R. Kelly. Remember, this is a man who married deceased R&B songstress Aaliyah when she was only 15.

“I’ve said it often, and I’m paraphrasing Malcolm X by way of Mark Anthony Neal, a great African-American scholar.” Jim DeRogatis, the Chicago journalist who has covered R. Kelly accusations for years said to VOX. “Nobody matters less in society than young black women.” What do you think? Was Fonda right in her statements? Or is she grasping at straws?
