Daisy Ridley Quits Instagram After Backlash for Anti-Gun Post

Daisy Ridley has deleted her Instagram account.

The 24-year-old Star Wars actress received some backlash from users over an anti-gun violence post she shared earlier in the week.

“Thinking about how lucky I am like……… Serious bit: as I sat in the audience yesterday [Teen Choice Awards] tears were streaming down my face at the tribute to those that have been lost to gun violence,” Daisy wrote (via EW). “I didn’t get a great picture of the incredible group that came onstage but they were so brave. It was a true moment of togetherness. We must ‪#‎stoptheviolence‬.”

Daisy also posted the message on Facebook and has since deleted it as well.

    I don’t understand why she quit. If she believes in common sense gun control, then she has a right to say that.

    Exactly my thoughts. Her view on the subject is completely coherent and not at all rare. I hope there’s a better reason behind this.

    She’s being harassed for being ANTI gun??? Go figure.

    Common sense gun control? She is from England. They have strict gun laws.

  • Marie Bunny Shepard

    She’s receiving backlash over THIS comment ? Are you serious gun-freaks ? A post like “All the people who owns guns deserve to die.” ok, you can freak out. But “the gun violence victims on stage was an emotional moment” is a freak out message for some ? I’m confused.

    Social media is not for the weak. There was no reason for her to delete her Instagram. Don’t let ignorant & hateful people win.
