Scarlett Johansson SLAMS James Franco At Women's March
Scarlett Johansson didn't beat around the bush while addressing the sexual assault claims against James Franco during her speech at Saturday's Los Angeles Women's March. The actress read Franco for filth - and hypocrisy and alleged crimes against women - in a rousing speech that seriously has the Internet shaking:
How could a person publicly stand by an organization that helps to provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people who have no power?
She then finished him off with a roundhouse kick in the form of:
I want my pin back, by the way.
I hate when people say this, but my wig really has been aggressively removed from my head. You could even say that it has been snatched. For those who didn't tune into the Golden Globes, Franco showed up proudly sporting a Time's Up pin even though he was under fire as the most recent Hollywood insider to be at the receiving end of allegations of sexual assault. While Johansson's speech doesn't specifically call out Franco, Just Jared confirms that he was indeed her intended target.
If you're already thinking "Um, hm, but, like, IDK, Woody Allen much?" then trust me, you are not alone. Some people are now slamming a slam, blaming Johansson for her hypocrisy in calling out an alleged sexual assailant when she herself worked with alleged abuser Mr. Allen on three different projects - Match Point, Scoop, and Vicky Christina Barcelona.
But then some people are slamming those people for slamming Johansson for slamming Franco. What do you guys think? Was this the speech we needed from Johansson, or does she need to check herself and collect herself? Let us know in the comments.
