'Solo: A Star Wars Story set to lose more than R637m'

Kelly Marie Tran

"We like & dislike stuff but we do it with humour, love & respect".

The UCLA grad followed the lead of her castmate Daisy Ridley, who deleted the popular platform in July of past year because she wasn't 'equipped'. The newest chapter of Star Wars Battlefront II is sending you to the spice mines of Kessel, where hopefully you won't be smashed into who knows what. John Boyega had to deal with racist Star Wars fans as well, after he was cast as the first black stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

Dozens of accounts expressed support for Tran, while some even blamed her departure from Instagram on "white men".

Some people targetted their racism at Tran's page on Wookieepedia, the online encyclopedia on all things Star Wars, and changed her name to "Ching Chong Wing Tong", describing her as "stupid, autistic and retarded". We're the VAST majority, we're having fun & doing just fine'.

The actress has yet to make an official statement as to why she wiped her Instagram account clean, but the rumor that it is because of online harassment has only made it clear just how many supporters and fans she does have in her corner.

- Ziggy (@mrjafri)Hey so a massive fuck you to the so called Star Wars fans who harassed Kelly Marie Tran to the point of her deleting everything off Instagram.

Kelly Marie Tran has faced a lot of that abuse, and now it appears she has deleted all of her Instagram posts because of it.

The Vietnamese-American star - who became the first woman of colour to play a leading part in the iconic series - has deleted all of her posts on the photo-sharing social network. Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the new trilogy, deleted her account in 2016 after facing criticism for her appearance and her stance on gun control.

"The Lord of the Rings" star Elijah Wood tweeted Tuesday night, "I [heart] #kellymarietran and her incredible work in The Last Jedi".

'And I didn't sign up for people to go, "You're incredible!"

At this time previous year, Kelly Marie Tran's most impressive IMDB credit was either her role in the indie horror anthology XOXO or her appearance on IFC's Comedy Bang! And I was like, 'I'm out.' Simple as that.
