These freaky, homophobic tweets made a ‘Stranger Things’ actress quit Twitter

Below are some examples of the meme, which include homophobic slurs.

Several Twitter users trying to explain the origin of the memes used this screencap of tweets in which someone accuses Brown of being Islamophobic. The hashtag had first appeared last November and has since resurfaced this month for Pride.

This has not stopped the damaging meme from spreading, however, with one popular tweet posted on May 12 saying "Millie bobby brown arriving at pride" above a video of someone driving a vehicle into several protesters. 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.

Numerous posts attribute obviously false quotes like "We don't need gun control, we need faggot patrol" to the British star.

The central bank raised its key short-term rate by a modest quarter-point to a still-low range of 1.75 per cent to 2 per cent. Fed officials project gross domestic product increasing 2.8 percent this year , up from an earlier projection of 2.7 percent.

And another obviously doctored image says: "I hate the word homophobia".

Millie Bobby Brown deactivated her Twitter account Tuesday after Photoshopped images of her went viral for all the wrong reasons.

She's taken on the Demogorgon, but Twitter trolls may have been too much. While numerous tweets directed at the actress have since been deleted, the tweets were said to have tried to label Brown as a violent homophobe by adding homophobic statements and slurs to her photos.

And one said - with receipts - that "MILLIE BOBBY BROWN SUPPORTS LGBTQ+".
