A new post by Star Wars Facts indicates that “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” costar Kelly Marie Tran has deleted all her Instagram posts and essentially wiped her profile clean.
The reason? While there’s no statement from the actress who plays Rose in what was her first major role in a feature film, it is strongly suggested that it’s the direct result of months and months of racist and sexist comments from social media trolls following her work in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.
Tran is the first woman of color to have a leading role in the “Star Wars” films and there reportedly was a concerted effort by trolls to go after the actress based on her race and gender. Fellow co-stars like John Boyega and Daisey Ridley have all been the target of trolls in the past.
