Halle Berry Bullied Out of Role

Halle Berry Bullied Out of Role

(TargetLiberty.org) – Actress Halle Berry has pulled out of a film role after pressure from transgender activists. The 53-year-old had been preparing to play a trans man in an upcoming movie, and on Saturday she discussed it while being interviewed for an Instagram video. However, the video was soon bombarded with hostile comments from social media activists, and by Tuesday, Berry had changed her mind.

The hostility was caused by the fact that Berry isn’t trans, and therefore some people – who are apparently unaware that actors and actresses generally play people they’re not – decided it was inappropriate for her to play a trans character. Berry has now issued a statement apologizing and thanking the bullies for their “guidance and critical conversation.”

While Hollywood isn’t always known for being loaded with morals and upstanding character traits, it’s wrong to bully anyone out of a job.
