In Hollywood, they'd have done this to "diversify" the cast.

It was a Hollywood movie. If you'd read the article, her scenes were cut
because test audiences disliked that aspect of the story, not for
diversifying the cast.

I've seen all sorts of movies that had trailers making them look
entertaining, only to discover that the entertainment was not in the
final cut. Can I sue?

Depends on how long the movie was. If it was 2hrs long, they cut her, then pumped it back out to 2hrs using a non-white actor in the scene, then it was to influence diversity.
