“Respectfully, L + Ratio”: Watch Star Wars Destroy Twitter Troll Badmouthing Kelly Marie Tran

Kelly Marie Tran played Rose Tico in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, despite having a horrible time being a part of the Star Wars brand. Rose established her name as a Resistance support figure when she first appeared in Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, largely with John Boyega’s Finn. This was while she was specifically the focus of sexist and racist remarks from viewers all over the internet, prompting her to withdraw from social media for her own peace of mind. Here’s how Star Wars destroyed Twitter troll badmouthing Kelly Marie Tran:

How Star Wars supported Kelly Tran:


While Rose continues to receive some of those harsh remarks even today, the official Star Wars Twitter account has shown her some solidarity. Kelly Marie Tran and her sequel trilogy co-actress Billie Lourd graced the platform for a presentation at Star Wars Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, California. When a fan said, “Nobody likes either of them,” Star Wars responded, “Respectfully, L + ratio,” implying that the fan had lost the debate in a humiliating way.

Many cast members from the second trilogy, like Finn actor John Boyega and Rey actress Daisy Ridley, have had to face nasty fans on social media. Tran was sadly the victim of many critical statements from fans who conveyed their disdain for her part in The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, which apparently led to her having a smaller role in Episode IX. Thankfully, the studio behind her character isn’t going to allow statements like these to go unnoticed.

With or without media platforms, Tran remains an admirer of the franchise, which in 2017 and 2019 handed her the most awards on her professional record. Her role was particularly essential in The Last Jedi, despite the fact that the film overall remains unpopular to this day. Even as sentiments like this seem to circulate on the internet, Lucasfilm and Disney remain resolute about supporting their actors. While Rose’s position with the series is still up in the air, she has more than enough encouragement from the crew that catapulted her into the spotlight in the fandom.
