If you’ve been keeping up to date with all of our pretty darn awesome news (*wink*), you’ll know that we love Millie Bobby Brown. Yuh-huh, we’re kinda obsessed. The 14-year-old British actress has become one of the most famous ladies in Hollywood thanks to her incredible acting talent, her role within the most epic TV shows ever made, her adorable relationship, and the fact that she is just cool AF. Since rising to fame, Millie has become a huge presence on social media and has won us all over with her photos and videos on Instagram, as well as her hilarious comments on Twitter. However, she decided that enough was enough last week, and decided to get rid of her Twitter account altogether…
So, why the Eggo did she delete her account?! It seems as though Millie Bobby Brown had had enough of users around the world who were using her name for derogatory and defamatory statements and ideas. Yep, if you’ve been on Twitter in the last six months or so, you may have seen a meme with Millie Bobby Brown’s face on it. Innocent enough, right? Well, not quite. The memes that are making the rounds are not about her character on Stranger Things, her professional life or the fact that she is besties with all of the coolest kids in the acting world right now, but are promoting a homophobic agenda. Sadly, that isn’t all. Trolls have also started to circulate a #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown hashtag that may have started out as a joke but has since been taken on by those who are looking to promote bad vibes.
Of course, Millie is not taking any of it – but wasn’t going to just sit around after deleting her Twitter account. Instead, she decided to make her feelings known during her acceptance speech at the MTV Movie and TV Awards. Although she wasn’t there to collect her award, she did take the chance during her video to take down her trolls and hit back at those who were trying to use her name for homophobic and insulting ideas.
“There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate, and neither should any of you. If you need a reminder of how worthy you are, and to rise above the hate, message me on Instagram.”
I mean, could she get any cooler if she tried?! We love you, Millie!
