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.

Yes Ms. Johansson needs to check herself.  She worked with Woody Allen who referred to her as his muse.  I'm not sure if that's why he used her in 3 different films since she's not a very good actress.  He wanted her in his movies because she was much younger than him and had nice big tits. Just like his other "muses". She was either blind or too stupid to put together Mia Farrow's accusations and his obvious penchant for young women like herself.

Good grief! Like the French revolution, this one's starting to eat it's own supporters. People should remember that Robespierre sent others to the guillotine for this or that crime; eventually, he ended up being executed on the guillotine himself. -- First Streep, then Ansari, and now Franco.  -- Pretty soon, the only people pure enough to belong to this movement will be people who claim to have been raped.

I thought the same thing regarding Scarlett Johansson working for Woody Allen, especially where Woody Allen's actions are far worse than James Franco, but there is one huge difference. Woody Allen has never attended an awards show wearing something stating he is against child sexual abuse or condemning adultery. Scarlett Johansson was condemning someone trying to pose as a supporter to hide his offenses. While Scarlett Johansson may not have been the best to speak where she worked for Allen, I'll still cut her slack.
