'Star Wars's Kelly Marie Tran deletes Instagram posts, fan harassment suspected

There is speculation online about whether Tran's recent Instagram departure was due to harassment from some who were angry over her role as Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And that's OKAY. Let us approach each other from a place of honesty in this confusion, let us embrace our differences with love.

Sarah Dollard chimed in: "If you followed Kelly Marie Tran on instagram then you know she has been one of the loveliest and most positive souls on the goddamn internet in the past year and I will FIGHT every last person who hurt her".

More bad news follows Disney's Han Solo movie as it's estimated the film will take a loss, the first time ever for a Star Wars movie.

British actress Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the Star Wars movies, quit social media past year after finding herself becoming a target for abuse. "I think it's interesting how her character Rose Tico in #TheLastJedi allowed us to see how widespread the First Order's venom has become, reaching out to the farthest points of the galaxy". We're the VAST majority, we're having fun & doing just fine'. Battlefront II's Han Solo Season is adding hero appearances, new maps, and a new look for the Millennium Falcon on June 12, all inspired by Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The attack on Tran and her subsequent deletion of her Instagram account is only the latest instance of racism faced by the cast and crew associated with the new Star Wars films.

'And I didn't sign up for people to go, "You're unbelievable!"

Tran's Instagram account remains active but all of her posts are gone as of this writing.

"The Lord of the Rings" star Elijah Wood tweeted Tuesday night, "I [heart] #kellymarietran and her incredible work in The Last Jedi".

'I'm super sensitive - not too sensitive - but I really feel things, ' the British 26-year-old admitted to Glamour in December. In the months since the film's release, a vocal minority of so-called "fans" have directed their vitriol directly at the film's cast and crew, subjecting Tran to copious amounts of personal insults. Maybe I'm supposed to say something like 'I respect all opinions, ' but I don't. And I was like, 'I'm out.' Simple as that.
