Millie Bobby Brown leaves Twitter after becoming homophobic meme

Millie Bobby Brown leaves Twitter after becoming homophobic meme

The actress, who was one of the first recipients of MTV's gender-neutral award a year ago, is a vocal anti-bullying advocate and LGBT rights supporter who has publicly voiced her support for GLAAD's Together movement as well as Parkland shooting survivors.

Millie Bobby Brown has apparently deleted her Twitter account after being the subject of a series of vile, homophobic memes.

The trolls posted the awful memes during Pride month, and one of the completely fake Photoshopped images took off and got wide circulation.

They also put the word "faggot" in her mouth.

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

"The joke here seems to be that it's so wildly out of character and unbelievable for Millie Bobby Brown to act violently or intolerantly, that presenting her as such makes people laugh", Vulture notes.

The meme's recent rise in popularity - after it started out with the hateful hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown - has been somewhat ironic, but in general, it has a deeply sinister tone.
