Sara Ramirez intimated on Instagram that they may have been dropped from And Just Like That after writing a lengthy statement regarding the current conflict in Palestine.
The 48-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star played Che Diaz in the Sex and the City spin-off, but fans were not impressed.
Critics of the show described Che as ‘cringy’ and ‘unhinged,’ even calling them ‘the worst character on TV.’
Sara, who confirmed their non-binary identity in 2020, has now said that the job will be their ‘final’.
Sara took to Instagram after posting multiple photographs advocating for a truce amid the continuing conflict between Hamas and Israel, writing, ‘Our business is so dishonest.
‘While they give awards away, casting directors and agents are making black lists of actors and workers who post anything in support of Palestinians and Gaza to ensure they will not work again.
‘While they lift up some of their own clients who have spoken up against this genocide, they are firing and letting others who have smaller platforms go.

‘While they award “lgbtq orgs”, they were are silent on those orgs ties to weapons manufacturers who are currently supporting the Israel military as it commits genocide on Palestinian lives that include LGBTQIA2S+ lives.
‘I get it. Awards are shiny and people need to pay their rent or feel special and powerful.
‘Meanwhile we are beyond the 100 day mark on this “war” that has been acknowledged by many, including the ICC, as a genocide.
‘It’s wild how performative so many in Hollywood are. Even more performative than the last character I played.’
According to IMDb, Sara’s final role was Che Diaz, who they performed in 21 episodes between 2021 and 2023.
Sara wrote in a second post, “I am so grateful for the people in my life who have helped me and continue to support me in healing and becoming free.”
‘Thank you for helping me peel back the layers of conditioning, socialization and trauma.
‘Thank you for helping me take responsibility for my own humanity as I continue to lean into the discomfort of growth and change.
‘Thank you for not exploiting me and discarding me.
‘Thank you for calling me in and holding me close while I forge a path of empowerment and authenticity.
‘Thank you for reminding me my softness is one of my many superpowers.
‘This is about being human and showing up with courage and curiosity no matter how bumpy the road there gets.’
And Just Like That was renewed for a third season in August, with showrunner Michael Patrick King saying at the time: ‘We are thrilled to spend more time in the Sex and the City universe telling new stories about the lives of these relatable and aspirational characters played by these amazing actors.
‘And Just Like That… here comes season three.’
Cynthia Nixon, Sara’s co-star, joined campaigners on a hunger strike in November to urge that US President Joe Biden declare a lasting cease-fire in the war.
The 57-year-old, who stood outside the White House alongside five congressmen, said that her two children are Jewish and her grandparents are Holocaust survivors.
‘I have been asked by my son to use any voice I have to affirm as loudly as possible that never again means never again for everyone,’ she said, via Sky News.
‘In seven weeks Israel has killed more civilians on a tiny strip of land than was killed in 20 years of war in the entire country of Afghanistan.
‘I am sick and tired of people explaining away by saying that civilian casualties are a routine toll of war. There is nothing routine about these figures. There is nothing routine about these deaths.’
Cynthia, who previously ran for mayor of New York, added: ‘I would like to make a personal plea to a president who has, himself, experienced such devastating personal loss, to connect with that empathy for which he is so well known and to look at the children of Gaza and imagine that they were his children.’
And Just Like That is available to watch on Sky and NOW.
