Well the woman once referred to -- Hanoi Jane -- now at the center of a new controversy.
As a former navy vet calls on folks to boycott Jane -- upcoming film.
Given her anti American actions during the Vietnam War.
But now -- -- spot that has a message for the man leading this charge in the -- standing with him.
Telling them they need to quote get a life.
The man behind the effort Larry -- is founder of the FaceBook page boycott Hanoi Jane playing Nancy Reagan.
Larry thank you for being with us of the movie is called the Butler and it's about this Butler at the White House is you know spanned several administrations.
And they've got a bunch of left leaning actors because that that may be redundant playing.
Former presidents and -- on John Cusack I think is gonna play Richard Nixon.
And they've recruited Jane Fonda had to played Nancy Reagan.
First just tell us why you find that so objectionable.
Well first off I wanna give his honored to my brother in law Pete Wright who served in Vietnam was killed.
You know what from an early age I was taught about -- it.
Which you did in Vietnam and -- never endorsed her in anything in my entire life.
When I -- found out they had I was on the computer and I had found out that she was gonna play Nancy Reagan that was just to me that was enough.
And I I had talked to young people at my work -- and other places where.
They didn't even know who Jane Fonda was other than they thought she was exercise guru or you know started stupid movies and that's only knew about -- So when I when I talk to them about -- they were like wow so when I saw this when I saw that she was going to be playing this part.
I decided to go ahead and and say let me see if other people feel like idea so I made this page -- it's boycott it.
I knew it wouldn't get you know that they wouldn't change.
Haven't heard in the movie but.
I wanted to see if enough people were as -- as I am about her for -- and Nancy Reagan and they are.
They -- and -- have been these pictures are Jane Fonda on an anti aircraft gun with the north on the enemies who were fighting ups.
Back and she was always.
So -- giving out.
He -- and she was she was actually sending radio messages out to the troops demoralizing them.
And stuff you know if she tells you need to get a life -- tells the -- to get a life.
Names on the wall.
Of soldiers and sailors and military men that have died that don't have a life -- -- -- that even makes her -- and it doesn't.
Let me tell you what she says she says look I -- have expressed regret for this picture in this moment.
She says I don't apologize for fighting the Vietnam War I didn't want to see anymore dead American soldiers I was trying to help and the killing.
Is her quote.
But she admits she was thoughtless and careless about the way she did it and says she's sorry she hurt -- she's sorry she hurt.
That senate and you know Americans who -- so offended by what she did.
Can there be you know no redemption no forgiveness in the wake of that.
Not sixteen years later you know really you don't.
Apologize for treason you should go to jail or even be shot -- I'm not saying that should happen to her but she never really paid the price or even you know the apology.
From what -- her was in New England where she apologized to New England.
That's because she was filming a movie there you know.
Sixteen years later and we're supposed to go OK no problem you know the thing negative it was an -- anymore do any apology was mediate back.
That's yeah that's ridiculous you know and and look at what her quote is right now you really think she is there any kind of remorseful she's not.
And we know it and when I made this page and now as many people that are on it right now I'm not the only one that's not gonna forgive or forget so you know.
I'm not gonna go watch any kind of movie or buy anything with her -- it.
But I hope the American people can go head and make their own choice and maybe say hey you know what we've had enough of of her and maybe not go see this movie and I hope of bombs.
Just FYI in a statement to the Hollywood reporter she said of her casting -- creates who plucked it will cause more people to see the movie I figured it would tweak the right.
Who cares very we shall find out whether anyone does thank you for being here sir.
Thank you for having me all of us you.
