The choice to resign was very hard for Scarlett. Regardless of one’s views, it is uplifting that celebrity would hold and practice such solid political convictions.

(PRWEB) February 04, 2014

Scarlett Johansson is one of the top performers working acting jobs in the business today. Her acting talent and charm are indisputable and seem to be increasing every year. This week, however, she has been in the news for different reasons. She recently stepped down as an ambassador of the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief (Oxfam).

Oxfam is a charity organization that is devoted to tackling the concern of poverty all over the globe and organizing with indigenous organizations in poverty-stricken areas to deliver aid. The group procures many famous figures as spokespeople and ambassadors. Until this week, one of these was Scarlett Johansson.

The conflict arose when Johansson voiced and displayed her support for SodaStream, a company functioning in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Oxfam opposes all business dealings with organizations in this region and considers it counter to international law. Scarlett Johansson, who is Jewish, supports SodaStream’s endeavors and all peaceful exchange between Israelis and Palestinians. She actually became a SodaStream ambassador. It was this move that prompted Oxfam to take issue with her status as their ambassador as well.

The choice to resign was very hard for Scarlett. Regardless of one’s views, it is uplifting that celebrity would hold and practice such solid political convictions.
