The Star Wars actress has deleted her entire account after a backlash from followers over a comment she made about gun control. The British actress, who has a huge following on social media, made the decision to delete her entire account this week. Ridley posted a comment about gun violence saying: “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.” She immediately faced a ton of negative comments telling her to mind her own business and stay out of the gun control debate. According to reports, Ridley reactivated her Instagram account on Wednesday to post a comment, which read: “I just want to be on my phone less.
