The French monarchy were somewhat known for their self-indulgence, it could be said. From Louis XIV’s dazzling palace at Versailles, to Marie Antoinette’s faux-“rustic” retreat Hameau de la Reine, the Ancien Régime had a reputation for extravagant indifference and isolation from the crushing poverty of their subjects.

Compared to the Nouveau Régime of the Hollywood elite, though, Marie Antoinette was as down-to-earth as a welfare mom in a Florida trailer park.

Every time a celebrity alights from their private jet to wag their fingers about greenhouse gas emissions, I’m left wondering, “Do these arseholes actually hear themselves?”

The celebrity arseholes don’t come any more arrogant, elitist and utterly deaf and blind to their own hypocrisy than Jane Fonda.

Actress and political activist Jane Fonda now says she is quitting plastic surgery as part of her efforts at “self-acceptance” amid her crusade to force the Trump Administration to acknowledge climate change as a threat of apocalyptic proportions.

Yep, I’m sure the first thing Trump thinks about every morning is, “I wonder what that wizened old commie hag would say?”

Is botox a greenhouse gas? How much methane does a septuagenarian crone emit while creaking through an aquarobics class? What’s the carbon footprint of a gold-plated Zimmer frame?

Fonda’s efforts have been hilariously self-obsessed. Although she convinced many of her famous friends to get arrested alongside her, none of them have spent time in jail, according to Vulture, even though Fonda claims she’s in danger of being “locked up” for “99 days or more.”

[…]In order to get arrested on Fridays, Fonda “relocated” to Washington, D.C., for four months, but she won’t reveal her accommodations — and they’re most certainly not one-star. The “iconic” red coat Fonda has worn during her protests — which she says is the last piece of clothing she will ever buy off the rack — is either a $750 Mai-R Wool Wrap Coat or, comically, a $2,950 Max Mara dyed camel hair number. Her new, “sustainable” haircut took seven hours. Her “ethically sourced” gold jewelry, which she wore to the Oscars to top off her “recycled” Oscars gown did little but spark mockery.

Fonda’s diamonds-and-gold activism must surely rank among the peak moments of celebrity narcissism-as-activism. “Let them wear Cartier!”, indeed.

Actress and left-wing activist Jane Fonda signaled her goodness this weekend via social media, posting a photo of herself in a recycled designer dress and her “ethically harvested” and “sustainable” jewelry.

Fonda, an abortion enthusiast and avid climate activist, presented “Best Picture” at the 2020 Oscars on Sunday.

“At Oscars wearing Pomellato jewelry because it only uses responsible, ethically harvested gold and sustainable diamonds. #Oscars,” the actress posted early Monday morning. […]Fonda’s designer dress was also reportedly “recycled,” meaning she wore it to an award show once before.

No doubt to her utter astonishment, the predominant reaction to Fonda’s elitist virtue-signalling was widespread mockery and derision.

“I’ve worn these same Target earrings six days in a row. I am basically Captain Planet,” said The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti.

Still, these morons are so tone-deaf to their own vainglorious stupidity that Fonda probably took that as an endorsement. “I’ve raised awareness among the peasants,” she probably croaked.

Of course, that assumes that Fonda even bothered asking one of her Mexican servants to take time out from peeling grapes and fetch the mistress’ white-gold-and-diamond-crusted GoldVish Le Million phone, in order to check her Twitter feed. Far more likely that she’s still ensconced in blissful ignorance in one of her many gated compounds, bathing in the blood of virgins, or whatever idiot routine Gwyneth Paltrow is advocating this week.
