Popular actress Scarlett Johansson was just another one of the many Hollywood stars to be in attendance at the Women’s March on January 20, in her case, in Los Angeles. Just like the rest of the celebrities, the actress held a very powerful speech that not only called for equal rights in the industry but also slammed James Franco!
As you may already be aware, Franco was accused of sexual acts with minors among others sexual misconduct allegations.
That being said, while at the Golden Globes, the man still wore the Time’s Up pin, showing his support for victims of sexual harassment, abuse and assault despite what he had done in the past.
‘How could a person stand by an organization that helps provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people with no power? I want my pin back, by the way,’ Johansson questioned the man’s intentions in front of the audience.
As you can see, the actress did not name James Franco directly.
However, one rep has confirmed that it was indeed a diss directed at him.
During the speech, fellow actress Mila Kunis held up the mic for Johansson.
Check out the whole speech here:
At the Golden Globe Awards, James won the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy category for The Disaster Artist.
It was after his speech that actress Ally Sheedy took to social media to tweet a few things that made people think she may be accusing Franco of sexual harassment.
The two worked together in the off-Broadway The Long Shrift production back in 2014.
‘James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business,’ the very first tweet read.
What do you think of Johansson’s diss towards Franco?
