Rosario Dawson Controversy: On Friday’s episode of “The Mandalorian,” Rosario Dawson made her debut as Ahsoka Tano, but the hoopla surrounding the actress centered on transphobia allegations leveled against her. For the first time since a lawsuit was filed against her last year charging “anti-trans hatred,” Dawson discussed the topic in an interview with Vanity Fair published on Monday.
“My sole purpose here is to convey my comprehension of what transpired and the reasons why people were and are worried. Some of these charges would make me anxious as well. As recent months and even recent weeks have demonstrated, the truth has now been revealed. All allegations of bias were denied by the initial complainant, who stated, “Dawson mentioned anything. When asked about two further allegations of physical altercation, Dawson refused to recant and stated that none of the allegations were accurate.
In this instance, there was no prejudice, thus the claims were dismissed, she claimed. “I have always lived in an inclusive and loving manner since I was a youngster. I have always used my position as a producer and director of fiction and nonfiction to channel trans voices in favor of the LGBTQA community and to campaign for their rights. Now that the facts have been proven, there is no longer any doubt in my mind. USA TODAY has contacted a spokesperson for Dawson and a representative for Disney+.
