A week after Star Wars' Kelly Marie Tran took down her Instagram photos due to a barrage of online harassment, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account after being targeted by a slew of viral homophobic meme.
The Twitter memes, often accompanied with the hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, depict Brown acting in a homophobic manner. As far as we can tell, there isn't a discernible reason why the meme took off, but as one Twitter user pointed out it was meant to be satirical. Take this as further evidence that the internet has seriously warped our sense of humor.
Brown has previously voiced public support for LGBTQ causes, including GLAAD’s Together movement.
The actress's secondary Twitter account, @Milliestopshate, remains active. Ironically, this account is devoted to Millie's anti-bullying efforts. Its bio reads, "I want this account to share love and positivity. let's stop bullying."
Sigh. Why can't we all just be nice to one another?
