ScarJo Would Never Play A Person Of A Different Race, Thankyouverymuch

March 31, 2017 / Posted by:

One hot millisecond after it was announced that non-Asian Scarlett Johansson was cast as Major Motoko Kusanagi in the live-action movie version of Ghost in the Shell, many were rightfully pissed that Hollywood had whitewashed yet another Asian character. When ScarJo was asked about the controversy earlier this year, she Crisco’d up her arm and dug deep into her ass to pull out an explanation. ScarJo could’ve kept it real and just said, “I LOVE MONAY!“, but she instead said she took the role in the name of feminism since Ghost in the Shell is a big action movie lead by a female protagonist.

The makers of Ghost in the Shell (including the director of the original anime adaptation) explained ScarJo’s casting the same way Tilda Swinton explained her casting in Doctor Strange. They said it’s not whitewashing since the character ain’t even human, let alone white. If anything, the robots should be protesting about a human taking one of their roles since ScarJo’s character is a cyborg. So basically, the Talking ScarJo Robot Doll got robbed.

ScarJo is doing the rounds to whore out Ghost in the Shell, and during an interview with Good Morning America, she echoed what the makers said.

Future President ScarJo said that her character, whose name in the movie is Mira Killian, is not a race. It’s a robot! And I’m sure ScarJo got the blessing from the President of All Asians Margaret Cho.

“I think this character is living a unique experience, in that she is a human brain in an entirely machinate body. She’s essentially identity-less. I would never attempt to play a person of a different race, obviously. Hopefully any question that comes up of my casting will hopefully be answered by audiences when they see the film.”

Well, some critics who have seen the movie say that it’s still guilty of whitewashing and the filmmakers attempt to cover themselves is a failure. (SPOILER ALERT) In the movie, the brain of a Japanese woman is put into a cyborg (ScarJo) and becomes Mira Killian. MESS. Asian Brain in the White Shell currently has a 46% on Rotten Tomatoes and it’s probably going to come in second or third at the box office this weekend.

It looks like Hollywood has found a new explanation for whitewashing. Disney has already said that they’re going to cast an Asian woman in their live-action Mulan, but they could cast Elle Fanning and explain it like this:

Calm down, everyone. You see, in this new version, Mulan dies and her soul possesses a hollow department store mannequin that just so happens to look like Elle Fanning. Mannequins don’t technically have a race, so it’s okay!

And here’s ScarJo serving Dollar Tree Brigitte Nielsen at the Ghost in the Shell premiere in NYC on Wednesday night.
