Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists SAG-AFTRA is an organization representing the interests of more than 100,000 actors and artists in the industry. Recently, SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris had a few words with Disney in the lawsuit of actress Black Widow.

"Disney should feel ashamed for using offensive tactics of sexism and bullying. Actors must be rewarded for their hard work under the contract. Scarlett Johansson is shining like a star. pioneers against inappropriate change in bounty treatment, when companies ignore artists to change the distribution model".

She added: "There's no one in any industry that deserves a cut in bonuses. It's absurd and unfair. Disney and other content producers are doing a great job and can do it. fulfill their obligations - pay bonuses to artists who work in art. It's the people who make products that contribute to their profits."

After the Black Widow actor filed a lawsuit, the parent company of Marvel Studios quickly responded. Disney denounced Scarlett Johansson's lawsuit as a "callous disregard for the horrendous lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic". At the same time, she affirmed that what she relied on was "baseless", insisting that she had fulfilled her responsibility.

However, a series of industry organizations have spoken out against Disney, supporting the actress. Women in Film, ReFrame and Time's Up jointly issued a joint statement calling the Mouse House's actions a personal attack on Scarlett Johansson. Later, co-chairman Bryan Lourd of Creative Artists Agency, also criticized the studio for "shamelessly and falsely slandered that Ms. Johansson was a person insensitive to the global pandemic".

Currently, the breakdown in the relationship between the star and Disney is still the focus of the film industry and the public. Most people support the actress in her battle with Hollywood's biggest studios, including Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. The person is said to have been "very angry and embarrassed" by the decision of the above bosses.
