Scarlett Surrenders To Identity Politics

An own goal by the idiotic warriors of identity politics:

Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has quit an upcoming movie role as a transgender criminal following an angry backlash against her casting.

Activists said a transgender actor should have got the part.

To be consistent, they should also insist the actor should be a crook.

Net result: with Johannson (pictured) out, fewer people will watch a film the activists would rather they did.

Luckily these crazies never got onto the case of Eric Stonestreet.

But I guess they’ll now insist that only straight actors play straights, right?

Or let’s go the whole hog down this crazy lane to insanity: no actor can ever play anyone but themselves.
