Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran deletes Instagram posts after abuse – BBC News

Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran, who has suffered months of racist and sexist abuse on social media, has deleted all her posts on Instagram.
Tran starred as mechanic-turned-Resistance fighter Rose Tico in 2017’s The Last Jedi.
But she experienced a fierce backlash from some fans, who took aim at her ethnicity and appearance.
The film’s director, Rian Johnson, has defended the star, apparently describing some fans as “manbabies”.
