Hollywood, CA - Hollywood screen goddess Scarlett Johansson has resigned as ambassador of international human rights organization OXFAM after receiving criticism from the group over her recent ad work for the West Bank based Israeli company Sodastream.
OXFAM, an international confederation of 17 organizations in 90 countries works to find solutions to poverty and end injustice and exploitation of poor people around the world. It was created at Oxford in 1942 and has opposed Israel's policies and settlements in Palestinian territories for several decades.
Agnostic Johansson's father is a Danish Christian from Copenhagen and mother is of Jewish descent whose family fled the pogroms of Russia. At a press conference early in her career Johansson stated "I want Hollywod to know, particularly directors, producers and studio executives, that although I was raised Christian I have a mother of Ashkenazi lineage and that these boobs are Jewess through and through!".
In a statement OXFAM said "We are grateful for Scarlett's many contributions over the last eight years". Johansson responded she was "proud of her accomplishments and fundraising efforts during my tenure with OXFAM".
But in a press release sent to major film studios later that day Johansson wrote "I was unaware for eight years OXFAM hated Israel and is filled with anti Semitic Jew hating nazis. Oy vey! Please forgive me!".
