this twitter thread (and this one that follows on from it) from a couple years ago explains it pretty well.

The particular way a lot of violence is perpetrated against trans people (esp. trans women) is rooted in not seeing that person as their actual gender. Casting cis people to play trans roles reinforces that idea, and therefore also contributes pretty directly to that violence.
