BOLLYWOOD after facing backlash online, actress Halle Berry has pulled out of a transgender role she was supposed to play in an upcoming film. Over the weekend, the Oscar-winning actress revealed she would “probably” play a transgender man in her next film.
“(The film is about) 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,” Berry said during an Instagram Live interview.
The news was met with a wave of criticism on social media, some slammed Berry for repeatedly using the wrong gender while talking about the character in the interview.
