'Stranger Things' Actress Millie Bobby Brown Leaves Twitter After Anti-Gay Memes

Share

Millie, who is known not just for her acting but also for her anti-bullying message had to take drastic action after images of her with homophobic slurs photoshopped over the top began to litter Twitter. The hashtag had first appeared last November and has since resurfaced this month for Pride. In a since deleted tweet, one of the people responsible for spreading the memes had this to say: "People getting mad over the Millie Bobby Brown homophobic meme makes me giggle".

The actress, who was one of the first recipients of MTV's gender-neutral award past year, 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.

Two days later, as the storm intensified and spread, energy levels had dropped to 345 watt hours and the day after, to 133. This reading is about twice as dense as any other storm that Opportunity has endured since landing on Mars in 2004.

Numerous posts attribute obviously false quotes like "We don't need gun control, we need faggot patrol" to the British star.

There has been a backlash against the meme, especially since Brown deleted her account, with one user writing that "pretending millie bobby brown, a literal child, is a violent homophobe for memes is f**king disgusting and not amusing at all".

In actuality, away from satirical memes, Millie Bobby Brown is a passionate supporter of LGBTQ rights.
