LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account after users posted memes depicting her as homophobic.
The memes featured photos of the 14-year-old with homophobic slurs.
It is not clear why she was targeted. The actress' publicist did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Thursday.
Brown has been a supporter of LGBTQ rights and created a secondary Twitter account Milliestopshate last summer that remains active.
Brown is set to return for the third season of the Netflix series.—
i think y’all aren’t getting the point of the millie bobby brown meme?
it was made by the gays as pure satire and mock of people who are actually homophobic
and the entire idea and meme of mbb being homophobic originated from this iconic stan twitter moment.
