Springtime predictions of a wild summer of blazes across the state appear to be proving themselves true - and with a fervor. Smoke hanging over the Buffalo Mountain Fire as seen from the intersection of Highway 6 and Dillon Dam Road, June 12, 2018.

Memes were created showing pictures of her that made her appear to be homophobic, Deadline reported.

The actress, who was one of the first recipients of MTV's gender-neutral award a year ago, is a vocal anti-bullying advocate and LGBT rights supporter who has publicly voiced her support for GLAAD's Together movement as well as Parkland shooting survivors. This kind of targeted bullying against a kid who has been doing a great deal to advocate for LGBT individuals seems like a new brand of toxic fandom.

No matter what the ultimate reason for these rather vile memes, the result was the talented and outspoken actress removing herself from social media, which might end up being a good thing for her, but for the world, it's rather sad. Long before Tran wiped her Instagram, Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley also bowed out of social media thanks to harassment from internet trolls. It regained traction this month during Pride Month. With online bullying now targeting a literal child, it's definitely well past time for some change.
