Actress Jane Fonda has claimed that “racism” is to blame for the alleged “climate crisis.”
During a recent interview on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Fonda claimed that “there’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism.”
Twitter users definitely had some thoughts, however, with many blasting Fonda over the comment.
During the show, Fonda was joined by her “80 for Brady” co-stars as the 85-year-old actress talked about what had motivated her to get involved in social activism.
“For me, it was learning about the Vietnam War,” Fonda shared.
“And when I really understood what that was about, I couldn’t not do anything except try to join the movement to stop it.”
“Well, you know, you can take anything — sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war,” the actress added.
“And if you really get into it, and study it and learn about it and the history of it and everything’s connected.
“There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism.”
People responded by taking to Twitter and blasting “Hanoi Jane” as a “disgrace” and more.
Fonda acquired the nickname “Hanoi Jane” in 1972 when she went to Hanoi, Vietnam, to decry the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, the New York Post noted.
“This Hanoi Jane freak has no clue. ‘Everything is connected’ Jane Fonda links climate crisis to racism,” Juanita Broaddrick tweeted.

“Hanoi Jane is a disgrace to the United States of America!” Fox News host Dagen McDowell said.
“We would not be talking about her today if she was not born into an acting family.
“And I don’t say that with humor; I say it with complete disdain and complete derision!
“Go away, Jane Fonda.”

“Hanoi Jane Fonda is whining about the weather from a climate-controlled building,” another person wrote.
“She got there by flying on a plane, driving in a car, staying in an air-conditioned hotel, drinking plastic bottled water, and going through armed security.
“She doesn’t care about the climate.
Hanoi Jane Fonda is whining about the weather from a climate-controlled building. She got there by flying on a plane, driving in a car, staying in an air-conditioned hotel, drinking plastic bottled water, and going through armed security. She doesn't care about the climate.
