Star of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Kelly Marie Tran has reportedly deleted all of her posts on Instagram after months of harassment from angry fans.

*SPOILERS FOR THE LAST JEDI FOLLOW*

The actress played Rose Trico in The Last Jedi. Her character was a mechanic who befriends and saves Finn (John Boyega), sacrificing herself in the process.

Tran was the first woman of colour to play a leading role in the franchise.

According to reports, she was subject to racist, sexist attacks from Star Wars fans since the movie release. The Rose Tico description on the Star Wars ‘Wookieepedia’ website was altered to feature offensive, racist language.

Star Wars Facts first reported that she deleted all posts from her Instagram account due to harassment.








In the past, Tran’s co-star, Daisy Ridley also deleted her Instagram account because of harassment from fans.

The latest from the Star Wars franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story, was released in cinemas two weeks ago.
