Kelly Marie Tran might have received massive support from fans and Hollywood peers after the Star Wars: The Last Jedi star decided to leave social media because of harassment and bullying, but it looks like the actress has no intention of returning.

Speaking in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to help promote her upcoming film Sorry for Your Loss, Tran was asked about the New York Times editorial where she wrote about her experience with bullying online.

"I felt like I wanted to write something honest, that truly came from me," Tran told the publication.

According to the actress, she feels that social media can be a double-edged sword because "just like anything else, (there are) really good and really bad things that come with anything."

While social media allows people from different cultures and experiences to connect with one another, it can also become an avenue for bullies and trolls to harass people online.

"I felt like I wanted to write something that was honest, that truly came from me and I don't know if I'll ever go back," Tran said.

Staying away from social media for a bit longer might be helpful for Tran. It's hard to deal with harassment and hate from strangers online, and shutting out all that negativity is a great way to respond to it all. The Star Wars fanbase might be filled with passion, but it's also been terribly toxic as well, with some fans actively insulting and attacking the Star Wars cast and crew because of films they don't enjoy.
