The Last Jedi breakout star Kelly Marie Tran has reportedly deleted all of her Instagram posts after dealing with months of harassment from shithead fans.

"All in all, we expect that 2019's Star Wars Episode IX will do quite well at the box office, probably exceeding Last Jedi, and that other Star Wars Story films will likely average closer to Rogue One than Solo, assuming Disney can execute on quality and marketing". Fans of the game are about to be in for a new world of content inspired by Solo: A Star Wars Story when the new batch of Han Solo season content arrives June 12.

The actress, who was the first lead female character of color in the iconic series, had been criticized by "Star Wars" fans for her performance, looks and Asian ethnicity.

Tran's account, with 212,000 followers, remains active. The Rose Tico description on the Star Wars "Wookieepedia" website was altered to feature offensive, racist language. "We're the VAST majority", noted the Last Jedi director.

Social media users began calling out her ethnicity and taking aim at her appearance - with numerous comments that were critical of her weight.

As of several years ago, since the first film the franchise had earned more than $37 billion, according to "How Star Wars Conquered the Universe", a 2014 book.

Tran got her big break playing Rose Tico, a rebellion mechanic, in the 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Daisy Ridley left Twitter due to intense scrutiny in the early days of production on The Force Awakens, and then deleted her Instagram entirely after a post about gun violence attracted swaths of negative comments. "I still don't believe I'm doing it", Tran said previous year upon the film's release. "Simple as that. That is not what I signed up for ... and I didn't sign up for people to go, 'You're amazing!' but I didn't sign up for them to say things like, "Your skin is s**t", either".
