Recently, Star Wars’ new Resistance hero Rose Tico has been getting bad ratings and inappropriate comments from lower level Star Wars fans. Also, Kelly Tran, the actress who portrays this character, has been subject to ridicule and harassment from these internet trolls. All this unfriendly attention has caused Kelly Tran to delete all of her social media due to the ongoing negativity. Actor, John Boyega who plays the notorious FN-2187, AKA “Finn”, has gotten to work; blasting all the naysayers and harassers into a completely different galaxy.
On June 12th, Boyega went to social media and stated, “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!” Our Resistance hero, Finn, did not stop there my friends. In this screenshot taken from comments on Twitter, Boyega did some trolling of his own:
As a Star Wars fan, I’m glad to see John Boyega stand up for his co-star in this time of unexpected backlash from butt-hurt fans. Like I said in my last article about Kelly’s unfortunate feedback from overzealous fan’s, do not let this bump on your journey through the galaxy affect your work. You are doing great and the force will be with you… always.
