Speaking in an Instagram Live, the Monster Ball actress, 53, revealed she ‘might’ be playing the role, leading to mass backlash. 

Taking to Twitter on Monday evening, Halle apologised for her ‘remarks’ and admitted that she should have not ‘considered this role’ in the first place. 

Her statement read: ‘As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories’.
