RALLY FOR ROSE TICO UNITES 'STAR WARS' FANS

  • Updated
  • 0

"Star Wars" fans showed up for "Last Jedi" star Kelly Marie Tran, who deleted her social media posts in June after being harassed online by trolls. That meant that the Rose Tico cosplay at this year's Comic-Con was a particularly meaningful show of support for the actress — even more so Saturday, when Tran fans in "Rose for Hope" T-shirts and a squadron of Tico cosplayers gathered to stage an empowering Rally for Rose on the convention's busiest day.

Using the hashtags #ForceOutHate and #RallyForRose, the moment organized by the Nerds of Color blog visibly rallied around not just Tran but also diverse representation in the "Star Wars" galaxy and beyond. Even "Star Wars" star Mark Hamill tweeted his support.
