So, they might cast Scarlett Johansson for the movie about the Thai Soccer team, right? Do you think she should be the coach or one of the boys?— BARBS1978 (@BARBS1978) July 14, 2018 Scarlett Johansson stepped down from playing a trans man in Rub & Tug after backlash @ScarlettJOnline has been cast to play all 13 boys in the #ThailandCaveRescue movie. #ShesAmazing @Variety @DEADLINE @THR #LGBTQ— ShermanJoaks (@ShermanJoaksCA) July 14, 2018 The part social media played for Scarlett Johansson to drop a trans role isn’t a bad thing. She first thought it was just a role, she had seen so many actors do the same in the past (her literal response to backlash) but just because it’s been done before doesn’t make it right.— (@itsjustanx) July 13, 2018 ‘In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project,’ Johansson said in a statement.‘Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues.’In the first statement Johansson references, she said ‘Tell them they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment’ in response to the backlash. This statement was controversial because she cites other cisgender actors who played trans people on screen in recent years, as if they didn’t also receive similar backlash.The TweetsAfter the news of Johansson bowing out of the role, the LGBTI community on Twitter not only rejoiced, but threw some shade as well. Here are the best tweets about ScarJo’s departure from Rub & Tug.To exhibit the spirit of generosity I earnestly want to see more of, I am going to take Scarlett Johansson at her word that she listened to feedback, realized that despite her intentions this was going to cause harm, and made the right decision to step down. Well done.— Jen Richards (@SmartAssJen) July 13, 2018 Scarlett Johansson; thank you for finally stepping down from a role you never should have taken.Hollywood; next time don’t fucking cast a cis woman for a male role and you won’t get so much backlash go figure #ScarlettJohanson #transpride #transmen— Alex the Trans Boy (@AlexTheTransBo1) July 14, 2018 Got a news tip?
