Trans Actors Shade Scarlett Johansson By Auditioning For HER Roles! WATCH HERE!

Earlier this month, Scarlett Johansson made headlines when it was revealed that she — a cisgender actress — would play a transgender man in the upcoming drama Rub & Tug.

In a video from INTO published last week, trans actors turn the tables on ScarJo by auditioning for HER roles!

This highlights a point championed by actors like Laverne Cox who argue that ScarJo's casting in said role wouldn't be such a big deal if trans actors were ever given opportunities to play cis characters. Sadly, that is not the reality right now.

Scarlett Johansson Is Playing Yet ANOTHER Problematic Character…

no title

UPDATE! 10:43 P.M. EST: Johansson's rep released the following statement to Bustle from the actress herself:

"Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment."

All three cisgender actors have played transgender roles to great acclaim.

Scarlett Johansson has clearly not learned from her Ghost in the Shell whitewashing controversy

According to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, the 33-year-old will play Jean Marie Gill in Rub & Tug, described by the publication as "a drama about a real-life transgender massage parlor owner." Coincidentally, Johansson is re-teaming with her Ghost director Rupert Sanders.

Jean Marie Gill, who was assigned female at birth, thrived in the 1970s and 1980s massage parlor and prostitution business by assuming the identity of a man, Dante "Tex" Gill.

The only problem? The new flick features a cisgender actress portraying a role that could've gone to someone who is actually transgender.

Back in 2016, Michelle Rodriguez faced similar backlash for her movie The Assignment, formerly (Re) Assignment. In the crime thriller, Rodriguez plays a male assassin who is forced to undergo sex-reassignment surgery, as if it was a punishment.

When Johansson's casting news went viral, Twitter users were FURIOUS! See all the reactions (below):

She's opening up, and facing very real fears.

You may recognize Gia Gunn from season 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race or the Chilean version of Drag Race, The Switch.

In April 2017, the queen announced she identifies as a transgender woman, something she knew since she was five years old.

A little over a year later, Miz Gunn is beginning her outward transition. She first started sharing on her YouTube channel with the #30DaysInTransition campaign, revealing Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Leif Rogers will be performing a breast reconstruction surgery and a fat transfer to her butt and hips. She has also undergone three years of hormone replacement therapy already.
