Star Wars fans harassed Kelly Marie Tran for months. She just deleted her Instagram posts.

As the Huffington Post reports, last December, Rose’s entry on the Star Wars wiki “Wookieepedia” was vandalized with racist and ableist slurs, so that the character description read as follows:

Ching Chong Wing Tong is a dumbass fucking character Disney made and is a stupid, retarded, and autistic love interest for Finn. She better die in the coma because she is a dumbass bitch.

When did Star Wars fans get so bold? We went from, mumbling about it and trying to make sure our dates didn't know how many time we watched the movies to full on jihad in the course of 5 years.

I don't think the former was ever actually true. It was mostly just mainstream portrayal (and possible shaming).

Well nerd culture was always a remote quiet subculture. Then Marvel came and forced it into the mainstream.

Thanks marvel. Fuckers

The RFR debacle rolls on. Yesterday they doctored the date out of a photo of andi guterriaz from the Star Wars show and dog whistled all their mob to go attack her. Which they did. In numbers.

Then This appeared. Listen to the end.
