LOS ANGELES: Actor John Boyega slammed online trolls for their abusive and racist behaviour towards his co-stars from the film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

The 26-year-old actor's comments came weeks after Kelly Marie Tran, who portrayed the character of Rose Tico in the Rian Johnson-directed film, deleted all of her Instagram posts due to months of online harassment.

"If you don't like 'Star Wars' or the characters, understand that there are decision 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!" Boyega wrote on Twitter.
