Ghost In The Shell Meme-Generator TOTALLY Backfires & Gets Repurposed By Fans Calling Out Whitewashing!

no title

Did they really not see this coming?

Paramount Pictures is still being haunted by Ghost in the Shell's whitewashing controversy, and the latest promotional campaign for the action flick didn't help!

Fans of the popular manga and anime franchise have been up in arms over Scarlett Johansson playing the lead role of Major — a Japanese character named Major Motoko Kusanagi in the original — and were just handed a golden opportunity to troll the studio over the miscasting.

Paramount unveiled a meme-generator over the weekend with the hashtag #IAmMajor, encouraging fans to upload photos of themselves and add empowering phrases like "I am strong" and "I am a fighter."

Well, that plan completely backfired. And critics instead used the generator to chastise the casting of ScarJo!

The results included images of the white actress with the words "I am not Japanese," and photos of the anime character with eulogy-like captions.

Other posts suggest Japanese actresses that could have been considered instead of the Avengers actress, like

Scarlett Johannson Gets Creepy AND Creeped Out In The First Footage From Controversial Ghost In The Shell Movie! Watch!

no title

No one knows how to unplug like Scarlett Johansson!

At least that's the case in the trippy first teasers for Ghost in the Shell, the upcoming movie based on the popular manga series about an anti-cybercrime unit.

On Thursday, Dreamworks and Paramount released five brief, visually striking clips featuring the Avengers star as cyborg special-ops agent the Major.

In one clip, ScarJo unplugs from her charging station to start her day; in another, she stumbles upon a ring of people hooked up to what looks like a human-computer hub (no wifi, sadly).

While the actress certainly looks the part, her casting has been a subject of much controversy — many fans feel the Major's Japanese background in the source material (her name is Motoko Kusanagi in the manga) was disregarded due to Hollywood whitewashing.

Ch-ch-check out the teasers (below) and decide if YOU think Johansson is a good choice for the lead role. Ghost in the Shell hits theaters March 31.

Paramount Reportedly Tested Visual Effects To Make Scarlett Johansson Look More Asian In Ghost In The Shell! SERIOUSLY?!

no title

Forget whitewashing, the newest Hollywood trend is apparently white-photoshopping!

Last year, Scarlett Johansson was the subject of casting controversy when it was revealed she would star in the live-action adaptation of the anime classic Ghost in the Shell.

When the first photo of the Captain America: Civil War in the role of Major Motoko Kusanagi (a Japanese woman in the manga and cartoon versions) surfaced on Thursday, critics once again blasted the studio for not choosing a racially appropriate actor for the leading role.

In response to the backlash, Paramount and DreamWorks reportedly tried to fix the ethnicity problem the only way they know how… with CGI!

ScreenCrush reports multiple independent sources close to the production told them the studio hired a visual effects team to run tests that would have changed ScarJo's appearance in post-production to "shift her ethnicity."

Meaning, they allegedly attempted to make their white lead look more Asian in the movie! WTF!?

The tests were conducted by Lola VFX, a visual effects company that aged and de-aged Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Now, the editing wizards are the industry leader in

First Look! Scarlett Johansson Goes Dark In The Anime Adaptation Ghost In The Shell!

no title

We've seen Scarlett Johansson as an alien, a superhero, a phone OS, and occasionally even as a woman.

Now she's taking a new form — as a cyborg!

Paramount & Dreamworks finally released the first look at the Captain America: Civil War star in the live action English language adaptation of the anime classic Ghost In The Shell.

Video: Watch Scarlett & RDJ Get Their Butts Kicked As #TeamIronMan Comes To Jimmy Kimmel Live!

For her role as the cybernetically enhanced leader of a cyberterrorism task force, ScarJo has gone to the dark side, with a short ultra-dark blue wig that we are digging!

Despite the actress' worldwide fanbase, her casting has been criticized by many as another example of Hollywood whitewashing — the character she's playing was Japanese in the original manga and subsequent cartoon.

Ghost In The Shell is still in production, and is set to hit theaters March 31, 2017.

What do YOU think of ScarJo's look in the film??
