Millie Bobby Brown Deletes Twitter After Trolls Make Homophobic Memes

Share

"Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after some users shared memes attributing homophobic, anti-gay comments to her, according to several entertainment publications, including People.

But there are some who say the memes started as an inside joke within the LGBT community.

Twitter linked numerous memes back to people in the LGBTQ community, further suggesting the posts are dark humor rather than real vitriol.

Just when you thought cyber bullying couldn't possibly get any worse, the conspicuous trolls who seem to love making other people's lives as hellish as possible have struck again.

Twitter users have began photoshopping pictures of Millie, adding homophobic slurs and comments over the top of her photos and posting the images to their accounts. When the woman refused, she alleges Brown then pulled off the hijab for her.

A year ago she wore an LGBT pin to the MTV awards and began another Twitter account @Milliestopshate in a bid to stop bullying, including cyberbullying.

This is far from the first time that similarly hateful activity has forced a star to remove themselves from social media.

The memes depicted the actress saying homophobic quotes and have been removed by Twitter in the wake of the incident. The Star Wars fanbase has been particularly toxic.

This has not stopped the damaging meme from spreading, however, with one popular tweet posted on May 12 saying "Millie bobby brown arriving at pride" above a video of someone driving a auto into several protesters. Daisy Ridley deleted her Instagram account after a tidal wave of backlash following an anti-gun post in 2016. To-date, he has also remained mum about Brown's Twitter exodus. This news was previously reported by Variety.
