CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose is taking on Kent State University.

LaRose sent out a tweet overnight calling on the college to rescind its invitation to Jane Fonda.

Fonda was selected to deliver a speech at Kent State’s 50th commemoration of the May 4, 1970 anti-war protest on campus that resulted in the death of four people.

Cleveland police arrested Fonda decades ago for protesting the Vietnam War. The 82-year-old activist and actress is continuing to protest and has been arrested multiple times recently voicing dismay in Washington, D.C.
