Have Star Wars trolls forced Kelly Marie Tran off Instagram?

Kelly Marie Tran

After reportedly enduring months of online abuse from some angry Star Wars fans, actress Kelly Marie Tran has allegedly made a decision to delete all of her Instagram photos.

Though Tran's Instagram account, which has almost 200,000 followers, is still online, there are now no posts.

Racist remarks, attacks on her Star Wars character Rose Tico, and claims that Tran "ruined" The Last Jedi all proliferated in the comments, whether or not her posts were related to Star Wars.

While The Last Jedi certainly did have a few problems, many Star Wars "fans" on the Internet have responded with hatred toward the sequel for the past six months, directing their negativity both toward the movie itself and toward those involved.

'What we talk about when we talk about manbabies, ' The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson tweeted in response on Tuesday. People weren't nice about how I looked.

Also with tvOS 12 will be new aerial screensavers from footage shot by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The upgraded audio experience will be coming to iTunes this fall and will be a free upgrade to applicable media.

While it's not been confirmed that was indeed the reason behind the deletion - and, remember Blake Lively deleted all her posts recently to drum up buzz for her latest film - speculation is rife she was a victim of targeted harassment. "We like and dislike stuff but we do it with humor, love, and respect". On "Wookieepedia", a Star Wars-oriented website, someone changed the description of Rose Tico to include offensive and racist language.

At this time previous year, Kelly Marie Tran's most impressive IMDB credit was either her role in the indie horror anthology XOXO or her appearance on IFC's Comedy Bang! She said she found social media interaction to be "bad for her mental health".

She later told Glamour magazine: "I was on Instagram, trying to do that whole thing, and people weren't very nice".

As a woman of color, Tran became an easy target for online subcultures aggrieved at minor gestures toward equality in our most mainstream storytelling mediums. That is not what I signed up for.

"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.
