Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account after facing harassment from social media users. The reality of the situation is that the actress is not only an LGBTQ rights supporter but also an anti-bullying advocate.

Millie Bobby Brown has deactivated her Twitter, after becoming the subject of a series of ironic memes that attributed fake anti-LGBTQ quotes to her.

According to a report from Variety, photos of the 14-year-old "Stranger Things" actress were being used by social media users to create homophobic memes.

She's taken on the Demogorgon, but Twitter trolls may have been too much.

Brown has not commented about deleting her Twitter account or about the trolling.

In 2017, Brown received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work as the telekinetic teenager on Stranger Things.

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.

The meme is thought to have originated as an inside joke from within the LGBTQ community.
