Halle Berry Pulls Out Of Transgender Movie Role Following Backlash
Hollywood actress, Halle Berry has pulled the plug on plans to take up the role of playing a transgender character in an upcoming film following online backlash.
The online backlash started after Halle Berry revealed in an Instagram live video her plans for the character.
She said, “It’s a character where the woman is a trans character, so she’s a woman that transitioned into a man. She’s a character in a project I love that I might be doing.”
She added that she wanted to take a “deep dive” into “that world” which is likely referring to the trans community.
Following that revelation, the transgender community is not pleased. They have said that the actress even misgendered the character multiple times during the Instagram live, and that members from the transgender community should be allowed to play transgender roles.
Reacting to the backlash, Halle Berry issued an apology via Twitter where she wrote about stepping down from the planned role.
