Millie Bobby Brown Leaves Twitter After Trolls' Homophobic Memes

Millie Bobby Brown Quits Twitter After People Make Fake Homophobic Memes About Her Millie Bobby Brown Deactivates Twitter Account After Becoming Homophobic Meme

Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after being turned into an "anti-gay" meme.

The hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown started previous year, according to one Twitter user, when someone claimed in a tweet that the actress refused to take a picture with her unless she removed her hijab.

Brown is set to return as Eleven for the third season of the Netflix series. Harassers also used the hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown.

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

In actuality, away from satirical memes, Millie Bobby Brown is a passionate supporter of LGBTQ rights. The last tweet is from December 12, 2017.

Target also will be pulling the cards from about 900 stores, according to a statement given to the Kansas City Star. Said Target, "It's never our intention to offend our guests with the merchandise we provide".

"Wowwwwwww humanity really is the worst", one person tweeted.

"You are grown adults, editing photos of her with captions that include the f slur, violence against lgbt community for comedy and it's f**king gross".

Of course, it's always upsetting to see fan harassment make a celebrity feel so unsafe on social media that they wipe their accounts, but this situation is even more frustrating because Brown is a child.

The memes depicted Brown as a "violent homophobe" and earned thousands of likes and retweets.
