“Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown has quit Twitter after her face became the target of homophobic memes.

According to the Wrap, the memes first surfaced in November under the tag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, and resurged in popularity in June.

The memes feature 14-year-old Brown’s face with photoshopped homophobic tweets including murdering gay fans.

“I was in McDonald’s today and saw Millie Bobby Brown, went up to her and asked for a picture when she yelled ‘fuck you faggot ass-looking homo walrus hoe burn in hell’ and beat me up till I blacked out then left on her private jet, someone stop her #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown,” reads one tweet.

Brown is an LGBT supporter and wore a LGBT pin to the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards. She also started a secondary Twitter account @Milliestopshate which advocates for anti-bullying and cyberbullying.

“I want this account to share love and positivity. Let’s stop bullying,” Brown wrote in the Twitter bio.

That account is still active although Brown has not posted on it since December 2017.
