The actress is causing a lot of controversy over her new transgender character in the upcoming thriller (Re) Assignment., and she set the record straight to TMZ that she has no means to offend the trans community.

“I’m bisexual, and I would never in my life do anything that would hurt the LGBT community,” said Rodriguez in an TMZ video.

Rodriguez was also under fire for how she explained the movie plot. In an Instagram photo of herself fully in character, she explained that Sigourney Weaver‘s “twisted doctor” character wants to “take my character’s manhood away with a sex change to teach him a lesson.”

While the Internet was upset of that portrayal, Rodriguez is standing by the movie.

“They don’t own the patent on sex changes, and the sex change in the movie is an act of vengeance,” said Rodriguez. “It has nothing to do with somebody’s emotional, psychological journey.”
