Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown Deletes Twitter Account After Homophobic Memes

A lot of salient points here

"Y'all bullied Millie Bobby Brown into deactivating her Twitter?".

Creators of these memes have been using old photos from Brown's own social media posts, adding homophobic statements and slurs.

But rumours circulating mean that Brown might be getting paid as much as $350,000 per episode, meaning her salary matches that of Hollywood actress and castmate Winona Ryder.

Brown is set to return as Eleven for the third season of the Netflix series.

The memes started with a few that said the child actress ran over gay people at Pride and was happy about it.


They also put the word "faggot" in her mouth.

Millie herself frequently posted on social media, updating on her whereabouts and posting sweet messages with boyfriend YouTuber Jacob Sartorius.

Although this exchange happened toward the end of previous year, the #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown tag has resurfaced and gained a significant amount of momentum over the past couple of days, with several new memes and fictional stories being created.

Addressing and dealing with toxic fans online is nothing new, but the conversation against online bullying and toxic fandom has been gaining traction since Tran's forced departure from Instagram.

The move came shortly after the Stranger Things star was the subject of homophobic memes on the social network. In fact, "this is why we can't have nice things".
