Tran quit Insty nearly two years after her cast mate Daisy Ridley also quit the site, she too having been harangued by "fans" for expressing support for the family members of the victims of gun violence.
This time it started when John Boyega took a serious moment to address the issue of actors being harassed by fans.
Obviously I could go on and on about everything that is incredible in the Star Wars films, but one of the most striking things about them is the creativity involved in all the different alien characters, their societies, their characteristics, and how well they fit into the stories, and this is no exception. Disney has gone a different way, and Lucas no longer has creative input on the Star Wars saga in any major way, but apparently, people at Lucasfilms were aware of his ideas and have simply kept a tight lid on them.
But he was taking no shit from anyone who didn't acknowledge the cruelty of the campaign against Tran. Mark Hamill also tweeted his support for his co-star, including a photo of him and Tran together with the caption "What's not to love?"
Now, to rile up those nasty, close-minded idiots, Stephen Colbert has "partnered with Lucasfilm" to remix a unique, brand-new Star Wars trailer for Episode IX, created to rile these trolls who think the franchise exists only for them. "People weren't nice about how I looked".
But while some are celebrating this breakthrough, a horde of trolls in social media and internet forums have taken it upon themselves to abuse Tran for basically not being a white male - harassing her online and ultimately hounding her off social media.
