Halle Berry Steps Away From Transgender Film Role

After social media did its thing, Halle Berry has pulled her name out of contention to play a transgender man. In addition to being a cisgender actor playing a transgender person, Berry continuously misgendered the character, referring to him as “she.” In a statement posted to Twitter, the actress cited “guidance and critical conversation” and a willingness to “continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake.” See her tweet below.
