Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran deletes Instagram posts after abuse

While it remains unconfirmed if Tran's decision was directly influenced by the toxic fandom that has emerged around the new Star Wars movies being produced since 2015, it does come in the wake of a vitriolic backlash against the cast, crew and studio responsible for these projects.

The SoCal native made history as the first woman of color to hold a major onscreen role in the Star Wars franchise and Rose prevented "Resistance hero" Finn (John Boyega) from martyring himself.

User @caroldanvrs posted: "kelly marie tran literally posted nothing but cute positive daily posts and y'all dudebro gremlins harassed her so much you drove her off insta". It was a dream journey, by the actor's own account, until the response from the ugliest corners of the galaxy far far away arrived, denouncing her online and even editing her Wookieepedia page with racist attacks. While Ridley deleted her social media amid the harassment, it was later confirmed she left Instagram because of other reasons.

All of the new content will be added to Star Wars: Battlefront II on June 12, 2018, and will be available on all platforms.

The Ron Howard-directed movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last month, but it has failed to capture the imagination of "Star Wars" fans, with its global box off takings expected to peak at around $400 million.

"I know how lucky I am to be a part of something that people love, to be able to act and tell stories at all", she said.

Tran is the first Asian-American actress to have a leading role in the "Star Wars" franchise.

The majority of Star Wars fans, including Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, are voicing their support for Tran on social media.

The EU earlier threatened to counterpunch by targeting USA products, including Kentucky bourbon, blue jeans and motorcycles.

Numerous replies to Johnson's latest comments continued in that vein, with accusations that he had "killed Star Wars" and caused the latest instalment - a Han Solo spin-off - to flop at the box office.

- Suzie Samin (@suzannesamin)I'm not sure WHY Kelly Marie Tran erased her insta pics - BUT I will say every single time I talk to her, I feel like I'm talking to a good friend of mine.

Daisy Ridley, one of Tran's co-stars, deleted her Instagram account in 2016 when she faced similar harassment for a post about gun control. And I was like, 'I'm out.' Simple as that.
