Millie Bobby Brown is 14 years old. Even though she is the star of Stranger Things she is not immune to bullies on the internet. These internet trolls are taking a step too far. 

At some point last year the hashtag #TakedownMillieBobbyBrown circulated on the internet and it has spiraled out of control. Many other actors of all ages have been targetted by trolls on the internet including Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran. However, these trolls seem to be trying to spread a false narrative that the young actor is homophobic. She is an outspoken supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. 

CNN reported that her Instagram is still up but is no longer active. She has changed her twitter bio to read "I want this account to share love and positivity. let's stop bullying  -MBB"

It's never appropriate to bully someone especially a child. There are no exceptions to that rule, it doesn't matter if the person is a celebrity or not.
