is it Duff's? try microwaving 15 seconds and knead knead knead until really soft. Don't add anything else it should work. This brand es extremely elastic and pliable

I used pre-coloured red fondant once (and ONLY once!!) and had the same problem. I don't know how to 'fix' the fondant so it doesn't tear, I'm interested to hear what others suggest.
