A week after “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” actress Kelly Marie Tran was harassed and bullied enough on social media that she left Instagram, 14-year-old “Stranger Things” breakout star Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account.
Brown reportedly shut down her Twitter following users posting memes depicting her as a violent homophobe. The meme-generators take selfies and photos of Brown, and add homophobic statements and slurs to them.
Several Twitter users have reportedly claimed the memes originated as an inside joke for LGBT tweeters. Brown, herself a public supporter of GLAAD’s Together movement, returns in the third season of “Stranger Things” which is in production for a 2019 airing.
