Sultry Scarlett Johansson is adding another image to her resume, as the new face of apartheid. She’s signed on with SodaStream, for its Super Bowl ad to be aired on February 2, launching off the corporation’s new worldwide advertising campaign with the sales pitch “better bubbles, made by you and Scarlett.” 

The SodaStream factory is built in Mishor Adumim Industrial Zone, located in the settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, one of the largest Israeli thefts of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank. The chunk of land the settlement is built on separated Ramallah, Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Jericho in violation of human rights and international law. At the announcement yesterday, Johansson appeared before a backdrop that bragged, “Set the bubbles free.” Her mother is Jewish, and the Times of Israel calls her a “Jewish actress.”

Haaretz reports: Israeli firm SodaStream hires Scarlett Johansson as its new face

“We are thrilled to welcome the remarkably talented Scarlett Johansson into the SodaStream family,” Daniel Birnbaum, the CEO of SodaStream, said in a statement.

Annie, Annie, you are not paying attention, you are not being a careful journalist. Read the SodaStream boxes on display at your neighborhood Costco. The labels clearly say “Made in Israel.” You have defamed the lovely Scarlett.

It’s a shame. I liked her film work and was looking forward to seeing Avengers 3. Oh, well, she’s on my boycott list now.

Maybe if she knows people are watching

Jewish?? Somebody should ask her if that is why she (at this point knowingly) represents a company that operates on stolen land and with labor that has no options or recourse.

If her “Jewishness” is not the reason, does she belong to a union? You bet she does. Does she wish to represent that others do NOT have that same right? Apparently.

Look deeper, past your agent, Scarlett. Your box office appeal is at stake.

Dont know Johansson, never seen her movie(s).
Dont know about ‘sultry’..picture looks like a police station mug shot of a slighty doped up …
Did you do that on purpose annie?…LOL
