After homophobic bullying, 'Stranger Things' star Millie Bobby Brown quits Twitter

Actress Millie Bobby Brown attends The 2018 Paley Fest screening of Netflix's'Stranger Things at the Dolby Theater Millie Bobby Brown Quits Twitter After People Make Fake Homophobic Memes About Her

This is probably because, in real life, she's an active supporter of LGBT rights and anti-bullying advocate.

Filming for Stranger Things season three is already underway, with Brown set to return in her breakout role as Eleven.

Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after she was the subject of some untrue memes.

Now that it's Pride Month, it seems as though the memes have resurfaced so that some can get a laugh at the expense of the 14-year-old.

Twitter users have began photoshopping pictures of Millie, adding homophobic slurs and comments over the top of her photos and posting the images to their accounts.


Some of the memes have been attributed to members of the gay community who found them amusing.

It remains unclear why Twitter users have opted to turn the actress into a homophobic meme. How low-class do you have to be to think using her image as a hate-filled meme is somehow a good idea?

The Stranger Things actress went social-media public with singer Jacob Sartorius and shared a gushing post, captioning her romantic snap "moonlight w him". While many of her followers loved it, others felt the image was too "old" for the 14-year-old. To-date, he has also remained mum about Brown's Twitter exodus. And sadly, it's just the latest example of someone being forced to delete their Twitter account over harassment or otherwise personal attacks from complete strangers online. The post has since been deleted.
