Millie Bobby Brown Deletes Twitter After Becoming The Target Of Homophobic Meme

Terrible Terrible

The 14-year-old British actress has removed herself from the social media platform after users began photoshopping posts taken from her Snapchat and posting them with homophobic and racist slurs written on top of the image.

Since the memes came to prominence and Brown deactivated her Twitter account, fans have been calling out those who made the memes. This is probably because, in real life, she's an active supporter of LGBT rights and anti-bullying advocate. With these fake images, she's being bullied, and her likeness is being used to cause pain to the LGBTQ community. Below is one of the tamer ones, though most are too profane to post.

Brown is set to return for the third season of the Netflix series. She wore both political pins while accepting her best actor award. Plus, she became the youngest person ever featured in Time's 100 most influential people list. Instead, they're falsely accusing her of violent homophobia.

She has not commented publicly on this latest turn of events. In the viral image, Brown and Sartorius stood atop a lifeguard stand on a moonlight beach where they shared a sweet kiss.

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. "It's pride month hoping to hit a few f****ts today".

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

The Stranger Things star was the subject of memes depicting anti-gay sayings with a sense of irony, but Eleven was having none of it and signed off for good - at least for now.
