In an interview Scarlett Johansson said that she "mishandled" her response to backlash she received in 2018 for agreeing to portray a transgender man in the film "Rub and Tug."

The actress quit the film — based on the real-life story of Dante "Text" Gill, who operated a string of massage parlors that were fronts for prostitution dens in the 1970s and '80s — after critics said her casting took opportunities from members of marginalized communities, namely transgender actors.
