Some have fiercely criticised her Star Wars character, but directed their hate at Tran personally instead.
Regardless of the personal reasons behind her departure, many fans began sharing their support of the actress and how her posts have had a positive impact on them.
Creutz compared the Solo teaser to the first teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, noting that the first 35 or so seconds of Rogue One's teaser focus exclusively on Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso and sold her as the film's protagonist, while Solo failed to make that sort of impression with viewers. "Also, there is a sense that I'm asked who I'm dating a lot more than John [Boyega] is".
The Last Jedi was a hit with critics when it hit cinemas and grossed more than $1.3bn at the worldwide box office, but some fans have dedicated much of their time since then to abuse its director, cast and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
Tran's Instagram page now just has a black and white profile photo and bio that reads, "Afraid, but doing it anyway". In some instances we'd change stuff a lot, and other instances we'd use elements of what was in place, and something we'd use a scene entirely - and they're brilliant guys.
Tran faced racism and sexism online surrounding her casting in "The Last Jedi". "We're the VAST majority, we're having fun and doing just fine".
Fellow Star Wars leading lady Daisy Ridley also deleted her Instagram account in 2017 and never returned, after becoming the victim of harassment and abuse over a remark she made about gun control in the U.S. You'd have to be an idiot to disagree with that.
The actress, who played Rose Tico in "The Last Jedi", didn't explain why she left the platform.
- Suzie Samin (@suzannesamin)I'm not sure WHY Kelly Marie Tran erased her insta pics - BUT I will say every single time I talk to her, I feel like I'm talking to a good friend of mine.
