NEW YORK – NBC News apologized Thursday for Jane Fonda's use of the c-word on the "Today" show.
The actress used the four-letter c-word for a woman's anatomy on the show Thursday while talking about the play "The Vagina Monologues." Fonda, 70, is appearing in a 10th-anniversary performance.
Fonda said she was asked to perform a monologue with the slang term for vagina as the title — and she used the term itself on the air. She said her reply was, "I don't think so. I've got enough problems."
About 10 minutes later, "Today" co-host Meredith Vieira told viewers that "Today" and Fonda apologized for the remark.
NBC News has recently apologized for comments made by Chris Matthews and David Shuster.
