Following in grandma’s footsteps! Jane Fonda couldn’t be more proud of two of her grandkids after they joined her to protest about climate change on Friday, November 29. The beloved Hollywood icon commended her teenage grandson and granddaughter after they stepped out in Washington, D.C. for her weekly rally.
The 81-year-old beauty — who has protested in D.C. for the past two months in an effort to raise awareness around climate change — took to Instagram to share photos with grandkids Malcolm Vadim, 20, and Viva Vadim, 17, after they were taken into custody by local police.
“With my granddaughter Viva Vadim who got arrested with 38 others today. Follow @firedrillfriday to take action against climate change,” Jane captioned a pic of the two. She also shared a snapshot while reuniting with Malcolm following the protest. “Greeting my grandson just leased after @firedrillfriday arrest for civil disobedience. Proud grandma,” she passionately wrote.
Fans of the Grace & Frankie star — who has been arrested five out of the last eight weeks she has attended the rallies, in what she calls “Fire Drill Friday” — praised her for teaching her daughter Vanessa Vadim‘s two kids the importance of standing up for what you believe in.
“Love the good work. Keep fighting the fight,” one fan wrote in the comment section of one of her posts, while another echoed, “Love that feisty Fonda blood line to take action on important issues.” A third Instagram used chimed in, writing, “What a great memory to have with your grandmother. Not many children have that.”
For the past two months Jane has been protesting in D.C., she’s been joined by a series of famous friends, including Grace and Frankie costar Sam Waterston and Cheers alum Ted Danson. Her longtime BFF, Lily Tomlin, also told Closer Weekly and other reporters that she’s planning on marching alongside Jane sooner rather than later.
The dedicated activist first began leading strikes around the D.C. every Friday on October 11. At the time of her first protest, Jane announced she would rally in support of climate change for 14 weeks in an email to The Washington Post. The blonde beauty is so passionate about climate change, she even moved to the city to protest until filming for Grace and Frankie‘s final season starts back up again.
“I’m going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the [television] series and I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to have a rally every Friday,” she explained in the email, which was released on October 10. “It’ll be called ‘Fire Drill Friday.’ And we’re going to engage in civil disobedience and we’re going to get arrested every Friday.”
Jane is one amazing grandma!
