Tony Stark and Black Widow’s death in Avengers: Endgame shocked and saddened everyone. While Robert Downey Jr. has gone on to make headlines for positive news. The same cannot be said for Scarlett Johansson. She has been back in the news again and it certainly isn’t for something related to Avengers: Endgame. Rather, the actress was featured in a cover story for AS IF Magazine and there is where all the problems began. Read on to find what went wrong:

During interview with AS IF Magazine, Johansson offered a choice quote in this story. She defended herself for picking controversial roles like Ghost in the Shell and Rub & Tug. She said:

“You know, as an actor I should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job. I feel like it’s a trend in my business and it needs to happen for various social reasons. Yet there are times it does get uncomfortable when it affects the art because I feel art should be free of restrictions. I think society would be more connected if we just allowed others to have their own feelings and not expect everyone to feel the way we do “
