John Boyega Addressed Harassment From ‘Star Wars’ Fans On Twitter, And Mark Hamill Responded

John Boyega, an English actor who portrays the character of Finn in the Star Wars films The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi took to Twitter to defend co-stars Kelly Marie Tran and Daisy Ridley from the toxic bro attacks they have been receiving from trolls on social media. The masochistic hate campaigns have forces Tran and Ridley to delete their Instagram accounts. We can only assume the goal here is these men wish for all films to only have male characters. Perhaps they wish for a world where women don’t exist at all and they can spend their days swinging their lightsabers at their fellow bros. 

  In his tweet, Boyega addressed the issue saying:

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 followed up that tweet with another saying: 

To the majority of Star Wars fans thank you for supporting and putting yourselves in our shoes. You understand that there is a process so much appreciated!

At this point, Star Wars’, Mark Hamill responded with a joke. 

Fans weighed in on the exchange.

Maybe this father/son duo can get the trolls to back off the” daughters”.
