No, fuck you and fuck that. There are actual trans actors that could have had that role. Hell, her ass already stole a role from an Asian woman.

"The future of “Rub & Tug” is in limbo following Scarlett Johansson’s exit from the project because of objections to her playing a trans man.

According to an individual with knowledge of the project, it is unclear if “Rub & Tug” will actually go into production. The insider indicated it doesn’t look good for the movie, which still has director Rupert Sanders attached.

Johansson’s production company, These Pictures, was a producer on the project, and it’s unclear whether Johansson and These Pictures will stay on to produce. Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures is also listed as a production company on the film, but Silver did not respond to requests for comment."

This isn’t that surprising to me tbh. He said some lowkey suspect things during the BP press tour as well.

I forget what he said word-for-word but it was something about how he thought it was absurd that Ryan Coogler had never directed a scene with only two white men interacting before the Klaw/Everett scene in BP. It wasn't anything outright malicious but there was just something about the way he said it that gave me the vibe he's the kinda person who would believe in reverse-racism and #AllLivesMatter
