Scarlett Johansson did not hold back at the Women’s March on Saturday!!!
During her speech — one of many by celebs and public figures at marches and events around the country — the actress called out James Franco specifically for his hypocritical support of Time’s Up and other equality movements while simultaneously being accused of sexual misconduct.
The fiery speech didn’t pull any punches, with Johansson at one point even demanding Franco give back a pin she had given to him — a reference, her rep confirmed later, to a Time’s Up pin Scarlett had given to James to wear at the Golden Globe Awards this year.
Here’s the bulk of Johansson’s call-out (below):
“In light of the recent revelations regarding abuse of power, and sexual harassment, and the question of consent versus coercion, I find myself pensive, taking time, and digging deep to understand where we are, and how we got here. My mind baffles. 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? I want my pin back, by the way.”
WOW!!!! Not bad!!!
And here’s part of ScarJo’s speech on video (below):
