Millie Bobby Brown quits Twitter after she’s turned into ‘homophobic’ meme

Millie Bobby Brown Quits Twitter After People Make Fake Homophobic Memes About Her

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

"Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after some users shared memes attributing homophobic, anti-gay comments to her, according to several entertainment publications, including People.

Millie Bobby Brown has responded to the hateful posts which saw her leave Twitter.

Fed interest rate: Federal Reserve hikes interest rate another quarter point today
In another hawkish development, the Fed has also removed its forward guidence in its monetary policy statement . Negative for gold though is that the central bank also forecasts tame inflation pressures throughout year .

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.
