John Boyega tells Star Wars fans to stop harassing cast

"If you don't like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/ actresses will do nothing", Boyega wrote on Twitter. Den of Geek reports that a particularly attentive Twitter user found a pretty significant clue into what Lucas' version of the films would have looked like. Tran's co-star John Boyega was the latest to voice his thoughts on the state of harassment and fan entitlement in the entertainment industry.

Exactly one week ago today, Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Kelly Marie Tran deleted her Instagram account after being subjected to numerous instances of harassment by various "fans".

But Boyega also thanked "the majority" of "Star Wars" fans for "supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes".

Boyega's response came four minutes later. And the Whills are the ones that actually control the universe. Now that fans have roughly a year and a half to wait until the next Star Wars film, Star Wars 9, which hits theaters on December 20, 2019, it will be interesting to see how fans will spend their time in this extended hiatus between Star Wars movies.

Sounds like he wanted to do an Osmosis Jones-esque adventure in the microscopic universe contained within the larger Star Wars universe.

Panama´s former president to be extradited home Monday:…
The Supreme Court of Justice of the Republic of Panama issued an arrest warrant [JURIST report] in December of that year. Former Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli is being escorted to a plane by U.S. security officials on Monday.

The London-born actor, who appeared in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, told followers: "You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. You understand that there is a process so much appreciated!"

But he was taking no shit from anyone who didn't acknowledge the cruelty of the campaign against Tran. Mark Hamill tweeted "What's not to love?" earlier this month along with a picture of himself and Tran.

And the movie's director, Rian Johnson, has also spoken out about the abuse aimed at Tran, which was apparently sparked by fans not accepting the California-born actress' Vietnamese-American ethnicity.

"On social media a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall, but over the past 4 years I've met lots of real fellow SW fans", Johnson said. Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, left Instagram after she faced harassment following a post about gun control.
