I wanna take this time to get something off my chest. Ever since The Last Jedi came out, there has been a massive amount of hate for this one character, Rose Tico. And after 10 viewings of the film, I still don't understand why. She's just a brand new character that takes Finn (by extension, us) on another adventure in a different part of this universe. When Rose tells Finn to take a look behind the "beauty" of the casino on Canto Bight (the sequence of the film I actually enjoyed), he finds out its not a beautiful place after all. Her bringing Finn on this journey helps his character progression because he gains a further insight of the universe he never got to explore as a stormtrooper. And I enjoyed all of Rose's scenes. She's cool, she's determined, she's a kind and gentle soul, and during the scene where she's mourning her sister's death, I just wanted to give her a hug. And this is Kelly Marie Tran's first big movie. Cut her some slack. She doesn't deserve this much harassment at all. And posting hateful comments on her birthday is just messed up. If you're gonna hate on any Star Wars character, save it for Jar Jar Binks.
To @kellymarietran, thank you for bringing this character to life, have a very happy birthday and don't let any of the haters get to you.
Oh. And may the Force be with you. :) #starwars #thelastjedi #rosetico #rose #kellymarietran #paigetico
