Millie Bobby Brown Deletes Twitter After Becoming the Subject of Hateful Online Trolling

This seriously needs to stop.

Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown removed her Twitter account on Wednesday, June 13, after becoming the target of a series of hurtful memes. It all goes back to November 2017, when Twitter user @KelsFiona claimed that the 14-year-old star “aggressively pulled off” her hijab when she requested taking a photo with her at the airport. According to Mashable, @KelsFiona was suspended on the social media platform and her tweet was later deleted.

Despite how implausible the airport incident sounds, other Twitter users have created and continuously used the hateful hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, posting memes and obviously made-up stories about Millie being homophobic. As an anti-bullying advocate, the actress has publicly showed support to GLAAD’s Together movement. Earlier this year, Millie also paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the Parkland shooting by wearing a jacket printed with “March For Our Lives” and the names of the victims while attending the 2018 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

It remains unclear why these memes and false stories are generated. As of right now, Millie’s second Twitter account @Milliestopshate, which is created to “share love and positivity” and “stop bullying,” is still live. She has yet to make any public statements regarding this matter.

In other news, Millie has recently made a cameo in Maroon 5‘s music video for “Girls Like You.” Check out the uplifting visual if you haven’t already.
