Have Star Wars trolls forced Kelly Marie Tran off Instagram?

After reportedly enduring months of online abuse from some angry Star Wars fans, actress Kelly Marie Tran has allegedly chose to delete all of her Instagram photos. She is also notable for being Star Wars' first women of colour in a major role. But that dream turned into a nightmare when it became clear that fans detested her character - which sadly turned into an assault on the actress' race.

Ridley and Tran are due to return for Star Wars: Episode IX, which is due for release on 20 December 2019.

Understandably, the actress had enough.

Earlier this week, the 29-year-old deleted all her Instagram posts, a decision she reportedly took after growing tired of the cruel posts on her profile.

Kelly Marie Tran has faced a lot of that abuse, and now it appears she has deleted all of her Instagram posts because of it.

An industry expert has predicted that "Solo: A Star Wars Story" will lose more than $50 million (about R 637m) for Disney.

Thankfully, fans without a racist streak have rallied round Tran, who plays Rose in the new trilogy - and is the first Asian-American woman to land a leading role in the series. Not only did she find a way, but she found it all the way to STAR WARS!

Tran and her character Tico were also targeted with abuse on Twitter. And that's OKAY. Let us approach each other from a place of honesty in this confusion, let us embrace our differences with love.


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

Her page description, "Afraid, but doing it anyway", remains.

And, he, too was confronted with a barrage of insults from Star Wars fans.

It is unknown why Tran deleted all of her photos.

- Star Wars' toxic fanbase may have driven Kelly Marie Tran off Instagram.

"I wish we lived in a world where every different person has the chance to write, direct, produce, and star in movies, but that's just not true", she said. She expressed her concerns about not conforming to an ideal body image and added that it was her fans who made it worthwhile for her on social media.

"I posted a thing about gun regulations, because I was at an event in tribute to the Orlando shooting at Pulse". And I was like, 'I'm out.' Simple as that. But I didn't sign up for them to say things like, "Your skin is s***" either'.
