Millie Bobby Brown Quits Twitter After Becoming Subject of Homophobic Meme

Another example of abusive online communities.

By //Entertainment

Millie Bobby Brown has left Twitter in the wake of a homophobic meme that people based around her. The actress/anti-bullying advocate has been dealing with the meme since it surfaced last year, which features people describing being a victim of homophobia at the hands of the Stranger Things star. The meme began in November 2017 when user @KelsFiona said the 14-year-old snatched her hijab off at the airport.

The obvious joke began to gain attention and others joined in, morphing the joke into the hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown. The hijab joke ultimately gave way to homophobic Tweets alongside memes and fake Snapchat screenshots. Millie hasn’t referenced deactivating her Twitter account since, but she recently posted a selfie on her Instagram story with a caption saying “good vibes only.”

In other news, a 9-year-old girl was sent to rehab for her Fortnite addiction.
