Jane Fonda tells #MeToo harassers to ‘sweep floor until you learn!’

She’s promoting her new HBO documentary Jane Fonda In Five Acts. 

And during the publicity tour for the film, Jane Fonda weighed in on those accused of harassment by the #MeToo movement trying to make premature career comebacks.

‘Sweep the floor at Starbucks until you learn!’ the 80-year-old actress advised disgraced stars like Louis CK and Charlie Rose at a recent event in New York.

#TooSoon: Jane Fonda weighed in on those accused of harassment by the #MeToo movement trying to make premature career comebacks

She made this comment at an event in New York City for Jane Fonda in Five Acts, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Oh, poor top-paid executives who can’t get his job back,’ quipped the Academy Award winning actress sarcastically. 

‘F**k it! Sweep the floor at Starbucks until you learn!’ Fonda continued.

‘If you can’t learn, you don’t belong in the boardroom. And there are plenty of women who do belong in the boardroom.’

Over-confident? 'Sweep the floor at Starbucks until you learn!' the 80-year-old actress advised disgraced stars like Louis C.K. and Charlie Rose at a recent event in New York. Louis seen here in September 2017

Last month, disgraced comedian Louis C.K. made a surprise return to the stand up comedy circuit when her performed at New York City’s Comedy Cellar.

It was the Better Things producer’s first public appearance since he was accused of – and later admitted to – accusations from five women of sexual misconduct last year.

Louis C.K. was dumped from numerous projects, including an FX Networks deal, a Netflix special and shelving of his film I Love You, Daddy, in the wake of his admission.

Another accused harasser looking to make a comeback is Charlie Rose.

The disgraced TV anchor is rumored to be planning a show in which he will interview other high-profile men implicated in #MeToo sexual harassment scandals, following accusations by multiple women against the 76-year-old.

But many believe it’s still too soon for the television personality to be forgiven – including Fonda.

‘It doesn’t matter how much time [they’ve been out of work]. If they haven’t done the work, then why should they come back?’ said Jane.

‘Men are trained not to be empathetic, not to be emotional,’ said the Klute actress.

‘So it’s not easy what they’re trying to do. But they have to try to do it!’ 

‘So it doesn’t matter if it’s been two weeks or two years. It just matters what kind of changes they’ve gone through.’ 

‘Why not do what the guys who lose their union jobs in Pennsylvania do? Work at Starbucks—f**k it!’
