Denver, Colo., Jan 5, 2019 / 12:00 pm (CNA).- In a 25-year film career, Scarlett Johansson has portrayed a cartoon mermaid princess, a comic book superhero, an Indian python, and a punk-rock porcupine. She has not portrayed a porn star. Nevertheless, her image has been digitally-generated in dozens of “deepfake” pornographic videos, which have been viewed more than 1 million times.
The actress said recently there is no way to fight back, and that online pornographers prey on the vulnerable for profit.
“The Internet is just another place where sex sells and vulnerable people are preyed upon,” Johansson told the Washington Post
