These weird, homophobic tweets made a ‘Stranger Things’ actress quit Twitter

Credit PA

Brown is a supporter of LGBTQ rights and an anti-bullying advocate; she publicly displayed a GLAAD Together movement pin to the MTV Movie and TV awards previous year.

According to Variety, the 14-year-old actress - who is perhaps best known for starring as Eleven in Netflix's Stranger Things - left Twitter after online bullies turned her into a homophobic meme.

Millie herself frequently posted on social media, updating on her whereabouts and posting sweet messages with boyfriend YouTuber Jacob Sartorius.

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

This might be confusing for those that buy the standard edition of the game and want to get the season pass down the line. However, the bigger news is you can't buy the standard edition of the game and then buy the Season Pass separately.

Brown has not commented about deleting her Twitter account or about the trolling. The account is still live. The actress' Instagram account, which has just under 17 million followers, is also still live.

One queer Twitter users believe that they became popular because they allowed straight people to use the word "faggot" public.

The memes feature photos of a smiling Brown accompanied by nasty anti-gay slogans that depict her as a homophobe, typically accompanied by the hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown.
