The event I chose to research was about Jane Fonda and 'Hanoi Jane' controversy. The controversy revolves around a famous actress named Jane Fonda. Fonda was in many well known movies and was a very popular figure in the 70's era and still is today. In 1972 Fonda decided to make a trip to Vietnam for 2 weeks. This already seems to be a sketchy idea but to add on top of it she was going to visit the enemy's side, The Viet Cong. Fonda visit a region of Vietnam called Hanoi and met with many of the people fighting against the Americans. Many pictures were taken and all of which showed her having a great time with those that were killing the lives of thousands of Americans. She visit POW camps and many villages, and upon her arrival back to the United States she claimed that the POW's were being treated and great and were being hypocrites. Many Americans viewed what she had done as an act of treason. To this day many people still do not respect her because of her choices and some consider her aiding and abetting to the enemy side that was against the United States.
