Kelly Marie Tran Removes Instagram Posts

Kelly Marie Tran, who played Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has reportedly removed all of her posts on her Instagram account due to months of harassment from angry fans.  Her character, Rose, is the mechanic who ended up saving Finn (John Boyega) from dying in the movie. Tran was also the first woman of color to a leading role in a Star Wars franchise film.

In December several news sites reported sexist and racist comments were aimed at Tran after her appearance in the The Last Jedi. On “Wookieepedia,” a Star Wars-oriented website, someone changed the description of Rose Tico to include offensive and racist language.  The information on the page has since been changed back to it’s original content and editing for that page has been turned off.

Paul Ray Ramsey took to Twitter to comment on Tran’s appearance. The tweet is still live on his profile with 199 comments,  92 retweets and 403 likes.

Star Wars Facts is now reporting that due to the harassment Tran has received for her role of Rose she has removed all posts from her Instagram account.

And while we can’t confirm the reason, Tran’s Instagram account is now empty.

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters last year Tran shared how special it was to be welcomed into the franchise.

“So many people wish for something like this. I still don’t believe I’m doing it,” she said. “Rose is not an amazing pilot or a Jedi. She’s strong in a different way.

“And I think that’s kinda how she holds her own… I’m making a Star Wars movie. I just feel so lucky to see how much work goes into everything and to see the end product. It’s been magical.”
