Stars whose endorsements turned sour
Scarlett Johansson for SodaStream
It’s old news by now -- Johansson gave up her ambassador work for Oxfam as it conflicted with her endorsement of a product manufactured in the occupied West Bank territories. It’s a rare black eye for a generally P.R.-conscious movie star -- whose Super Bowl ad (banned from the air for mocking Coke and Pepsi) had been treated initially as a P.R. win, and whose Oxfam work had helped cast her in a socially conscious light.
