    A black actor who features in the new Star Wars film The Force Awakens has been shrunk from a poster promoting the movie in China - prompting a race row in the country.
    John Boyega, 23 - who plays lightsaber-wielding Finn - has appeared much smaller on the Chinese advertisement than the UK version.
    The British actor and lead role in the sci-fi epic is placed under Han Solo and Princess Leia, as TIE fighters firing upon the Millennium Falcon take up the right side of the poster.

    Other characters Chewbacca and Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron are missing, while droid BB-8 is much larger in the Chinese version.
    People took to Twitter to share their concerns, with one branding the move as 'horrific'.
    One user wrote: 'They actually removed John Boyega from the Star Wars poster in China...this world man.'

    Meanwhile, a message on Star Wars forum read: 'Every Asian poster for the film that I am aware of has decreased the size of Finn's image and or moved him further back into the background of the images of the posters.
    'The fact that this way of doing business went over Westerners' heads is surprising. Everyone was acting as if JJ or the folks at Disney, for example, cut that Japanese trailer.'
    In a statement, John Hsu, of the Walt Disney Company, China, said: 'We are thrilled to bring Star Wars: The Force Awakens to China on January 9.

    'We're excited to be rolling out our marketing campaign and to connect with new fans in China through Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'

    That finn douche always has the same dumb slack jawed look on his face in every pic. Always looks like he's so surprised or puzzled.

    "Chinks" is way out of line, buddy. The proper term is "Chinamen".
