Speculation is rampant in the galaxy that Kelly Marie Tran has deleted her Instagram posts due to bullying, reports YOMYOMF.

Tran, who played Rose Tico in the last Jedi, has been targeted by fans who are upset our universe has become a bit more diverse.

The actress has not commented about why her posts have disappeared from the popular social media site.

In December, AsAmNews reported in our story headlined Resistance Defeats Racists in a galaxy Not Far Away that hateful messages berating her appearance had inundated social media and that someone even hacked into her Wookiepedia fan page to edit her biography and change her name to Ching Chong Wing Tong and her hometown to Ching Chong China.

According to E, Tran has long shied away from social media and only opened her Instagram account in the run up to the premiere of The Last Jed.

“Guys, can I tell you a secret? I avoided public social media for a long time purely because I was afraid. I was terrified of being picked apart, of being scrutinized, of being seen,” she wrote last October on Instagram.
