Palestinian Boycott of Scarlett Johansson’s Women’s March Speech ‘Contemptible’.
The groups who boycotted Scarlett Johansson’s Women’s March speech in Los Angeles due to her position as spokesperson for SodaStream, an Israeli company that employs both Jews and Arabs, was both “clarifying and contemptible,” Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said on Twitter Sunday.
“It’s clarifying and contemptible that some boycotted LA @WomensMarch because of Scarlett Johansson’s presence based on her proud Zionism & previous support for @SodaStream, a company that employed Jews and Arabs,” he tweeted.
Greenblatt was reacting to news, reported Saturday, that a Palestinian group, Palestinian American Women’s Assn. (PAWA), was withdrawing from the march due to Johansson’s participation.
