Recently, Kelly Marie Tran quit Instagram. Reports have it that the actress, who played Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, went off social media because of all the harassment she’d been facing.

 

Now, John Boyega is speaking out against those who choose to attack his fellow Star Wars actors and actresses.

 

On Tuesday (June 12), John took to Twitter to write:

“If you don’t like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/ actresses will do nothing. You’re not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!” 

 

He followed this up by expressing how grateful he was for all the support and understanding from fans:

“To the majority of Star Wars fans thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes. You understand that there is a process so much appreciated !”

 

John has captivated audiences as Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi — where he shared many scenes with Kelly’s Rose.

 

What a powerful message. Kudos, John!
