Scarlett Johansson is facing a Hollywood backlash for taking on the role of a transgender mobster.

Rupert Sanders is set to direct the upcoming film titled  "Rub & Tug,”.  It is based on the true story of transgender massage parlor owner Dante "Tex" Gill.

From DailyO:

Born Lois Jean Gill in 1931, "Mr Gill" — as he liked to be addressed during his lifetime — the mobster ruled a string of brothels, under the cover of seedy massage parlours, with an iron fist, while undergoing a sex-change, and was hated and hounded by both the authorities and the Mafia. According to many profiles chronicling his life, Gill, at the pinnacle of his mob-boss career, raked in millions, travelled the world, dined at top restaurants and owned rare pets.

So what's the controversy?  Watch below.
