Actress Scarlett Johansson said she stands by her decision to serve as a spokeswoman for SodaStream, an Israeli company with a factory that provides high-paying work to impoverished Palestinians.
Reports Israel Hayom:
Johansson, who stepped down as Oxfam ambassador about a month ago after the charity criticized her choice to become a spokesmodel for SodaStream, told Britain’s Observer newspaper in an interview that the case against the SodaStream factory was “something that’s very easily debatable.”
“I stand by that decision,” the actress told The Observer of her choice to make an advertising deal with the Israeli company.
“I was aware of that particular factory before I signed. And it still doesn’t seem like a problem — at least not until someone comes up with a solution to the closing of that factory and leaving all those people destitute.”
