The Scarlett Johansson thing is one of those cases where there is no "right side."

On one side you have a massive corporation that cares about nothing but profits.

On the other side you have an extremely wealthy A-list 1%er celebrity who seems to care about nothing but profits.

The contracts in question were signed before Covid. We've all had to make sacrifices due to Covid. Scarlett Johansson should recognize that, and realize that suing because she made a few less millions is a really, really bad look when people are being evicted as we speak.

But I can't take Disney's side either. Disney+ is making them record profits. I'm sure they could have paid her what she expected from a different pot and still make wild profits.

So yeah... Fuck greed. It sucks and it's a big reason why the world sucks.

@zorinlynx I also see it as an acknowledged risk. Johansson must be pretty full of herself if she's *that* overconfident that anything she's in is going to do well in the box office and would have been wise to not work purely on contingency.
