Friday afternoon, four military veterans protesting Jane Fonda playing Nancy Regan in the “The Butler” were asked to leave the Streets of Brentwood by management. The protest lasted about 30-minutes and ended without incident.
While we understand the Streets of Brentwood did not want a “negative reflection on the property”, asking military veterans to leave is probably not a good idea if they wish to not have a “negative reflection” on themselves.

This was the 30 minute protest today at the Streets of Brentwood. Four veterans were protesting Jane Fonda playing Nancy Regan in the new movie “The Butler” which opened today at AMC 14. Jane Fonda, is also known as (Hanoi Jane), a communist sympathizer.
The Veterans were approached by the Streets of Brentwood security officer, and then the Property Manager. She asked if they were protesting the Streets of Brentwood or the theatre. The Property Manager was told that they were not protesting the Streets or any business’s, just protesting Jane Fonda playing the role of Nancy Regan in the movie “The Butler”.
They were informed by the Property Manager that she understood their cause but she told them they had to leave because she cannot have any negative reflection on the property and as the Manager they had to leave. Several persons walking by verbally supported the protest. There was no negativity towards the Manager or Security staff and the group left.
