Share

Kelly Marie Tran, who appeared in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has deleted her Instagram after she was reportedly the target of trolling fans of the franchise.

"All in all, we expect that 2019's Star Wars Episode IX will do quite well at the box office, probably exceeding Last Jedi, and that other Star Wars Story films will likely average closer to Rogue One than Solo, assuming Disney can execute on quality and marketing".

"Rose Tico was unequivocally one of the highlights of 'The Last Jedi, '" Nanjiani tweeted in reaction to the news about Tran's harassment.

Finally, players will be able to sink their teeth into some new cosmetic items, including Solo: A Star Wars Story-inspired versions of Han, Lando, and Chewbacca, as well as a special version of the Millenium Falcon that was featured in the aforementioned movie. Her character, Rose, is the mechanic who ended up saving Finn (John Boyega) from dying in the movie.

Some people targetted their racism at Tran's page on Wookieepedia, the online encyclopedia on all things Star Wars, and changed her name to "Ching Chong Wing Tong", describing her as "stupid, autistic and retarded". "We're the VAST majority", noted the Last Jedi director. "It's sad that her life choices are presently being dictated by a frightful bunch of so-called Star Wars Fans", said Sanjiv Indran, the president of the Star Wars Malaysia Fan Club.

Tran seems like a delightful human being, and even went as far as befriending Star Wars fans she heard talking about the film in a pub.

"I was at [the Teen Choice Awards] and people weren't nice about how I looked".

Tran has repeatedly stressed on her struggle to handle media scrutiny through her Instagram posts. The only thing that remains on her Instagram account?

Fellow Star Wars leading lady Daisy Ridley also deleted her Instagram account in 2017 and never returned, after becoming the victim of harassment and abuse over a remark she made about gun control in the U.S. "I was like, 'I'm out, ' Simple as a that". Maybe I'm supposed to say something like 'I respect all opinions, ' but I don't.

Tran played Rose Tico in the eighth episodic film of the beloved science-fiction franchise - but her role has irked some male fans - who then inundated her social media pages with abusive messages.
