US broadcaster Megyn Kelly has torn into Jane Fonda over her historic Vietnam War protests, as their feud over plastic surgery comments gets nastier.

Kelly, the former Fox News personality, lambasted the 80-year-old actress, telling her she has "no business lecturing anybody on what qualifies as offensive".

Their spat started in September 2017, when Kelly had Fonda as a guest on her new NBC show Today and asked about the cosmetic work she'd had done.

Fonda has since criticised Kelly over the interview and now, she's had enough.

"When she first complained, I chose to say nothing, but it's time to address the 'poor me' routine," Kelly said on her new segment.

She then played clips of Fonda discussing her cosmetic surgery with other media.

"Apparently when she came here, however, again to promote her film about aging, I was supposed to discern that this subject was suddenly off-limits," said Kelly.

"I have no regrets about that question. Nor am I in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is or is not appropriate. This is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage.

"Look at her treatment of our military during the Vietnam War. The moral indignation is a little much. Honesty, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive."

Kelly showed images of Fonda with Viet Cong troops during the Vietnam War and recounted her saying their torture of American POWs was "understandable".

Fonda has expressed regret over her Vietnam War protests, stating in 2015 they hurt her "to her grave".

She has not responded to Kelly's latest attack.
