John Boyega Slams 'Star Wars' Fans Who Harass the Actors & Actresses

John Boyega is seemingly sticking up for Kelly Marie Tran, who played Rose Tico in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, who quit Instagram over harassment.

“If you don’t like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/ actresses will do nothing. You’re not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!” John tweeted moments ago on Tuesday (June 12). “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 !”

John has played the role of Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars' John Boyega & Black Panther's Letitia Wright Attend Met Gala 2018 Together!

John Boyega walks the red carpet with Letitia Wright at the 2018 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The actors are longtime friends after attending London’s Identity School of Acting at the same time. They went on to star in two of the biggest films ever – Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Black Panther.

Letitia and I were in the same class. It was so special for me to see her in [Black Panther] because I have seen Letitia from when we both had nothing, had no credibility, and wanted our chance. We would sit and after classes, everybody would congregate at a nearby McDonald’s and I remember seeing Letitia and we would speak about our dreams and our visions,” John told The Grio.

FYI: John is wearing a Michael Kors Collection blazer, shirt, and trousers with Tod’s shoes and a The Tie Bar tie. Letitia is wearing a Coach dress and bag with Forevermark jewelry.

John Boyega Opens Up About What He Learned From Carrie Fisher

John Boyega is featured in Elle‘s April 2018 issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actor had to say…

On his passion project, Pacific Rim: “There was something quite intriguing about the epic effects, the world that Guillermo del Toro built up. But also the characters. I’ve always just been after interesting projects told from an interesting perspective. I don’t want to see the handsome guy saving the world. I want the leading man to be a man – someone raw, someone who is grounded.”

On redefining what a leading man is: “I designed Jake—from his haircut to his look. I always wanted to redefine what a leading man is. Jake is cocky. When you’re young and you get your first hint of facial hair, and you keep that one strand growing, even though it’s not growing properly.…”

On what he learned from Carrie Fisher: “Be who you are, and let the world judge you how they will. Her freedom gave me the strength to say, ‘I don’t care what you guys think. Because for you to have an opinion on me, I must’ve made it to a certain point.”
