Fresh off the success of the newest Avengers movie Scarlett Johansson is gearing up for a new film role.

It’s a first for her, she will be playing a role based on the life of Dante "Tex" Gill, a transgendered man who owned massage parlours in Pittsburgh in the 1970s and 80s that the police saw as little more than brothels.

But the internet is not happy with the decision to cast Johansson in the role.

A lot of people have come out against the decision to cast Johansson on Twitter for a variety of reasons. 

The most common one is that many are unhappy that a trans actor wasn't given the role instead. 

Johansson was previously critisized for her role in the 2017 movie Ghost In The Shell, where she played a character that was originally written as Asian.  

However, not everyone is criticizing Johansson for accepting the role.  

But the voices of support are really in the minority here, most people are just pissed off.
