The star of Netflix's Stranger Things deleted her account after a meme spread which depicted her as a murderous homophobe.

The hashtag, #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, began surfacing again this month as well.

Millie Bobby Brown has left Twitter. It's unclear why Brown was the target of online harassers, although the actress is an outspoken supporter of LGBTQ causes and advocates for GLAAD's Together movement. In a since deleted tweet, one of the people responsible for spreading the memes had this to say: "People getting mad over the Millie Bobby Brown homophobic meme makes me giggle". The actress' Instagram account, which has just under 17 million followers, is also still live.
