Jane Fonda Uses the C-Word on 'Today'
[Warning: Foul Language]
Besides her left wing activism, famous North Vietnamese propagandist Jane Fonda spouts foul language on morning network television, when some children almost certainly saw it. Discussing the feminist play "The Vagina Monologues" on the February 14 edition of "Today," Fonda used the obscene term to describe part of the female anatomy.
Although it is only February, this is the second time this year that a celebrity used an obscene word on morning television. On the January 15 edition of "Good Morning America," Diane Keaton dropped the F-word. Unlike host Diane Sawyer, Meredith Vieira did not appear shocked.
The transcript is below.
MEREDITH VIEIRA: I know when it started there were some A-list celebrities who came out to help you, but Jane, you at first were not a big fan of the play. So what turned you around?
JANE FONDA: Well, it wasn’t that I wasn’t a big fan. I hadn’t seen the play. I live in Georgia, okay? I was asked to do a monologue called "cunt." and I said "I don’t think so, I got enough problems."
Update 11:45 | Noel Sheppard: On the west coast, the c-word was cut from the audio.
Update 16:24 | Matthew Sheffield. Later in the show, "Today" co-host Meredith Vieira apologized for Fonda's remark. Click here for the video.
