Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after being subject to homophobic memes on the social media site.
Some of the 14-year-old’s followers on Twitter added “quotes” onto her selfies, and photoshopped her into memes to make it appear that she was spreading anti-gay messages.
The ‘Stranger Things’ actress has been a vocal advocate of LGBT+ rights for some time. Millie wore a blue ampersand pin in honour of ‘GLAAD’s Together movement’ at the MTV Movie and TV Awards last year.
This is not the first time a trolling trend has caused a celebrity to give up their social media accounts.
Just last week, Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran deleted all her posts on Instagram, after months of abuse on social media.
Her fellow Star Wars actor John Boyege just yesterday urged Star Wars fans to stop harassing the cast on social media.
We hope we see Millie return to Twitter as we love her witty account!
