Scarlett Johansson Shamed Out of Transgender Movie, Now Look What Might be Happening to the Film

Published

on

Hollywood is a cesspool of liberalism and progressive ideology, often pushing out art and entertainment with subversive ideas that twist God’s good design for family, marriage, sexuality, and gender identity.

Thus, when it was announced a filthy film called “Rub & Tug” about a transgender massage parlor owner was being made, it was not exactly a huge shock. After all, the film industry has become the propaganda wing of the left over the last several decades.

However, controversy struck the film’s production when it was announced that actress Scarlett Johansson would be playing the lead role in the film, as the left shamed her for not legitimately being transgender. They wanted “representation” meaning an actual trans actor to play the part.

These folks kept the pressure up until Johansson dropped out of the project. What these people don’t realize is that without star power to put butts in theater seats and sell tickets, the movie would be a bad investment for the production company, and now, alas, it might not even get made.

Political correctness strikes again.

“The future of ‘Rub & Tug’ is in limbo following Scarlett Johansson’s exit from the project because of objections to her playing a trans man,” The Wrap reports. “According to an individual with knowledge of the project, it is unclear if ‘Rub & Tug’ will actually go into production. The insider indicated it doesn’t look good for the movie, which still has director Rupert Sanders attached.”d

Johansson’s production company, These Pictures, was set to co-produce the film, but now that she’s no longer starring in the project, “it’s unclear” if the company will stay on, The Wrap reports. Also unclear is whether Joel Silver’s production company Silver Pictures will move forward with the project if These Pictures pulls out.

After backlash from transgender activists over a “cisgender” actor playing a transgender role, Johansson announced last week that she would pull out of playing Dante “Tex” Gill, a female massage parlor owner during the ’70s and ’80s who “prefer[red] to be known as a man,” according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s obituary of Gill.

Johansson initially defended her decision to take on the role, arguing that playing a transgender character was no different than transgender actors playing cisgender roles. That prompted even more forceful backlash from activists, which ultimately convinced Johansson to reverse her decision, issuing the following statement to Out Magazine:

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. 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 am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% from 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release. While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film. I believe that all artists should be considered equally and fairly. My production company, These Pictures, actively pursues projects that both entertain and push boundaries. We look forward to working with every community to bring these most poignant and important stories to audiences worldwide.

Now, the fact the movie might not even be made is no problem as far as the rest of the sane world is concerned. After all, the vast majority of folks in America still believe in traditional, God defined roles for men and women. And, you know, there’s the whole science denial by folks who think transgenderism is a real thing and not a mental disorder.

It’s somewhat hysterical to see the left eating their own and the application of their own principles completely destroy something they actually wanted. You can’t have “representation” in major Hollywood films without star power. They shot themselves in the foot with this one.

MUST SEE: Barr Shreds Reporter In Half When She Implies He’s ‘Covering’ For Trump [Video]

Annnnnnd AG Bill Barr just won the internet…

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…

GAME ON: Tlaib to Introduce Impeachment Resolution, & Ocasio-Cortez Is EAGER to Sign

GET READY, PEOPLE!

Thursday was a bad one for Democrats. Their deepest fears were confirmed. Conservatives had known from the jump that Trump’s 2016 team never colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, but the left continued to harp away despite never finding a single concrete fact. When Attorney General Bill Barr took to the podium to let the nation know exactly what Special Counsel Robert Mueller “found,” the MSM went ballistic. Heck, freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI) even moved to introduced articles of impeachment. On what grounds? None, really. And yet, fellow rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is eager to sign Tlaib’s resolution. She tweeted: Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1118989661555372033?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118989661555372033&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Frep-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-says-she-will-sign-rep-rashida-tlaibs-impeachment-resolution%2F The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro had eight takeaways from AG Barr’s Thursday presser. Here are two of them… 1. The Trump-Russia Collusion Claims Were Farcically Overblown. While there were certainly members of the Trump team who acted suspiciously – including Trump, who continued to lie to the American public that no work was occurring on the Trump Tower Moscow deal during the 2016 campaign – the claims that Trump was a nefarious Russian agent were comically exaggerated. The Mueller report itself makes this clear: Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. 2. The Original Suspicions Regarding The…
