When the movie came out in December, fans were quick to debate whether it was the most hated Star Wars film of the franchise.

Rian Johnson, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has slammed the racist and sexist trolls responsible for harassing actress Kelly Marie Tran.

"Kelly Marie Tran has deleted all the posts off her Instagram due to months of harassment she has received for her character Rose", the Twitter account posted on Tuesday morning.

'And I didn't sign up for people to go, "You're fantastic!" I avoided social media for a long time purely because I was afraid, ' Tran wrote in an October 15 post.
