Kelly Marie Tran Isn't Sure if She'll Ever Return to Social Media
THE LAST JEDI’s Kelly Marie Tran deleted her Instagram account earlier this year after continual harassment by racist/sexist trolls and elaborated in a New York Times op-ed that her decision to do so didn’t mean she was “giving up”:
You might know me as Kelly.
I am the first woman of color to have a leading role in a “Star Wars” movie.
I am the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair.
My real name is Loan. And I am just getting started.
“I felt like I wanted to write something that was honest, that truly came from me and I don’t know if I’ll ever go back,” she said.
