Star Wars actor John Boyega has urged fans to stop harassing the cast on social media. His comments came after two co-stars, Daisy Ridley and Kelly Marie Tran, quit Instagram after receiving online abuse.

 

The actor, who plays Finn, tweeted: "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 site, telling followers: "See ya!"

 

Fans of the sci-fi series have been vocal about recent films' storylines, often directing their views at Boyega. The London-born actor, who appeared in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, told followers: "You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!"
