I’m getting really sick and tired of these holier than thou STAR WARS fans that think they have the right to dispute if a Star Wars film will be any good or not, look at how SOLO is bombing for this very same reason and I really hate when they have an issue with casting to the point that they cross the line and harass an actor. The amazing Kelly Marie Tran who played Rose Tico in Star Wars The Last Jedi has deleted all her social media accounts after “months” of continuing harassment from those few piece of crap Star Wars fans that feel there opinion counts.
Late Monday night, the Star Wars fan site @swtweets tweeted out that tran had indeed gone dark and deleted all of her posts from Instagram and all she left was her bio that read ” Afraid, but doing it anyways”. Tran was the first Asian American actress to be a lead in the Star Wars franchise, and her performance was one of the best in the film. Since the films release in December shitty “Star Wars” fans have been criticizing her performance and on top of that her “Asian” ethnicity. From the Alt-Right to pathetic nerds who have nothing better to do than hurt people on social media from their parents basement, Tran has sadly been a target from them all. What really angers me is how excited and humble she was to be in The Last Jedi and be almost of a role model to Asian and women everywhere. Back in December she told Variety what it truly meant to her,“it has been both an honor and a responsibility. I feel so overwhelmed.” She added, “A lot of ‘Star Wars’ fans who are specifically Asian never had a character they could dress up like, or they would and people would always call them ‘Asian Rey’ or ‘Asian fill-in-the-blank.’ I get very emotional when I see people who are able to identify with this character. That means a lot to me and I don’t think it will ever get old.”

It’s these same Star Wars fans that bashed SOLO, way before the film came out. I don’t blame the fact that the film came out weeks after Deadpool 2 and weeks after Avengers: Infinity War. When the first teaser was released, these vultures picked a part the trailer and they didn’t let up at all for months. Sadly we will never know the identities of these pathetic idiots and they will keep harassing. Darren Sproles Womens Jersey
