Star Wars actor John Boyega has urged fans of the franchise to stop harassing the cast on social media.

His feedback got here after two co-stars, Daisy Ridley and Kelly Marie Tran, stop Instagram after receiving on-line abuse.

The actor, who performs Finn, posted on Twitter: “If you don’t like Star Wars or the characters, understand that there are decisions makers [sic] and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing.”

He then appeared to say he was leaving the location, telling followers: “See ya!”

Fans of the sci-fi collection have been vocal about current movies’ storylines, usually directing their views at Boyega.

The London-born actor, who appeared in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, informed followers: “You’re not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!”

He later pressured that the overwhelming majority of fans supported the cast and thanked them for “putting yourselves in our shoes”, including: “You understand that there is a process, so much appreciated.”

That prompted phrases of “fatherly” recommendation from Mark Hamill, AKA Luke Skywalker.

“Be careful there son – the last time I let a fan put themself in my shoes, they just took off running & sold them on Ebay,” Hamill wrote.

Boyega’s most up-to-date publish reads: “EP 9 loading… see ya!” – referring to the actual fact he is engaged on the brand new Star Wars movie.

Kelly Marie Tran, who performed Rose Tico in 2017’s The Last Jedi, suffered racist and s3xist abuse on social media. She later deleted all her Instagram posts.

But Boyega replied to a message asking why Tran had deleted Instagram by writing: “Kelly is an adult and has made her decision. I haven’t spoken to her so I am just as clueless. Just accept that you don’t know, as I have.”

Ridley stop the platform in 2016 after being criticised for a publish about gun violence within the United States.
