Star Wars Actor Daisy Ridley Forced off Instagram After Harassment


The brightest star of the new Star Wars trilogy, Daisy Ridley, has been forced off Instagram, due to harassment from a bunch of monosyllabic-troglodyte cowards, hiding behind the anonymity of the internet…

During the 2016 Teen Choice Awards on Monday night, Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress, Daisy Ridley (Rey), shared a photo on her Instagram account, and captioned it with:

Ridley posted the photo to her Instagram account to simply say she was moved by the family members of victims who were killed in the Orlando, San Bernardino, and Newtown shootings.

Since Ridley’s Instagram account has been shutdown, we have to rely on the BBC’s Newsbeat to see what she actually posted:

"“Thinking about how lucky I am like……… Serious bit: as I sat in the audience yesterday tears were streaming down my face at the tribute to those that have been lost to gun violence.“I didn’t get a great picture of the incredible group that came on stage but they were so brave. It was a true moment of togetherness. We must #stoptheviolence.”"

That’s it…that is all the young actress said, and soon after, the vile trolls came in droves to attack her. Thanks to The Mary Sue, we can see what the idiots actually said…because you know, once it’s on the internet, it’s forever.

Yes, well, you see Vince, Star Wars isn’t real. Blasters don’t really exist. Therefore, Daisy, as an actress in a science-fiction/fantasy film, never actually killed anyone…because it isn’t a real thing. You get that, right, buddy?

Dear Josh, I’m sure I speak for the majority of Star Wars fans here, when I say buh-bye. What research are you referring to, exactly? Daisy simply said we must stop the violence. Don’t you agree? Or, do you think we all should live in a post-apocalyptic world where a guy named Max drives a beat-up 1974 Ford XB Falcon, around the desert, while guys chase him, and spray chrome spray-paint in their mouths, while screaming “WITNESS ME!”? Come on, Josh.

Look, I’m sure I’ve probably enraged half the people reading this article…and I don’t really care. Daisy Ridley wasn’t making a political statement, by saying we must stop the violence. She was simply moved, emotionally, by the children and family members of the victims of the recent gun violence that has plagued our great nation.

If you are angry at Daisy Ridley for supporting children in their time of need, then you are part of the problem, and you need a serious look at your life. Take a step back, and seek professional help.
