The popular Twitter account, Star Wars Facts, sent out a tweet, saying, "Kelly Marie Tran has deleted all the posts off her Instagram due to months of harassment she has received for her character Rose in #TheLastJedi".

Her page description, "Afraid, but doing it anyway", remains.

Star Wars fandom is as divided as its ever been before and some fans have made a decision to attack actress Kelly Marie Tran on her personal Instagram, resulting in her deleting her posts.

Fans have been posting screenshots of her Instagram (before it was erased) to show the level of harassment the actor regularly faced from upset Star Wars fans who blamed her for their dissatisfaction with the movie.

‘The Office’ actor Hugh Dane dies at 75
Dane is reported to have died May 16, with a notice posted on Los Angeles' Inner City Cultural Center Facebook page. Furthermore, he had a fair number of movies under his belt, including Bridesmaids , Little Fockers , and Joy Ride .

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit theaters previous year Tran shared how special it was to be welcomed into the franchise. People weren't nice about how I looked. "We like and dislike stuff but we do it with humor, love, and respect".

For years, Tran chose to stay away from social media - in fear that she'd get ripped to shreds. Tran's last-minute Porg costumes have disappeared, along with her inspiring posts to followers struggling with self-doubt or anxiety.

A number of Star Wars fans (including Kumail Nanjiani and Star Wars book author Chuck Wendig) also flooded Twitter to praise Tran and denounce the racist and sexist attacks against her. Before using what valuable time you have in the day to flood a strangers Instagram with hate, think about how you could be using it to put out more positive, smart, and loving energy in your fandom of choice. It took me a year of self-work - and some really awesome, supportive friends - to make me realize that it's none of my business if people like me or not. "I was like, 'I'm out, ' Simple as a that".

"I wish we lived in a world where every different person has the chance to write, direct, produce, and star in movies, but that's just not true", she said. "That is not what I signed up for", Ridley, who played lead character Rey in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi told Glamour.
