    Default Kelly Marie Tran and Millie Bobbie Brown bullied off social media

    Millie Bobby Brown leaves Twitter amid cyberbullying

    Millie Bobby Brown attends the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on August 27, 2017 in Inglewood, California.



    Story highlights

    • Brown deleted her account Wednesday
    • She's the latest celeb to be cyberbullied




    (CNN)Millie Bobby Brown has deactivated her Twitter account after becoming the target of a cruel hashtag and meme.

    The 14 year-old "Stranger Things" star deleted her @milliebbrown account Wednesday.
    The hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown started last year, according to one Twitter user, when someone claimed in a tweet that the actress refused to take a picture with her unless she removed her hijab. When the woman refused, she alleges Brown then pulled off the hijab for her.

    It started with this. Then she tweeted #takedownmilliebobbybrown which her followers jumped on and it became a full blown meme pic.twitter.com/AqDg04Vcwt

    There is no evidence the incident actually occurred.
    The hashtag was used to spread stories -- many of them with outrageous details -- falsely linking Brown to homophobia. (Brown has been an outspoken supporter of GLAAD's Together movement.)
    Other social media users expressed support for Brown, who remains active on Instagram.

    "Wowwwwwww humanity really is the worst," one person tweeted. "Y'all bullied Millie Bobby Brown into deactivating her Twitter? Hope you feel real good about tearing down a 14-year-old (who's more successful than you'll ever be)."
    Brown is just the latest celebrity to be bullied online.
    "The Last Jedi" star, Kelly Marie Tran, recently quit Instagram after months of racist backlash regarding the inclusion of her character, Rose Tico, in the film.
    Brown's anti-bullying Twitter account, @Milliestopshate, is still on the platform.
    CNN has reached out to Browns reps for comment.

    ‘Star Wars’ Actress Kelly Marie Tran Leaves Social Media After Months of Harassment

    Kelly Marie Tran, who played Rose Tico in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” has taken herself offline after experiencing months of social media harassment.
    On Monday night, “Star Wars” fan account @SWTweets alerted that Tran had deleted all of the posts from her Instagram page, leaving just a black and white profile photo and a bio that reads “Afraid, but doing it anyway.”
    The actress, who was the first lead female character of color in the iconic series, had been criticized by “Star Wars” fans for her performance, looks and Asian ethnicity. Alt-right internet personality Paul Ray Ramsey took aim at her appearance publicly, and the “Wookieepedia” page for Tran’s character was altered by contributors with offensive, racist language.
    At the “Last Jedi” premiere in December, Tran told Variety that bringing diversity to the “Star Wars” world has “been both an honor and a responsibility. I feel so overwhelmed.” She added, “A lot of ‘Star Wars’ fans who are specifically Asian never had a character they could dress up like, or they would and people would always call them ‘Asian Rey’ or ‘Asian fill-in-the-blank.’ I get very emotional when I see people who are able to identify with this character. That means a lot to me and I don’t think it will ever get old.”
    “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson tweeted that the “VAST majority” of “Star Wars” fans do it with “humor, love & respect.”

    On social media a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall, but over the past 4 years I’ve met lots of real fellow SW fans. We like & dislike stuff but we do it with humor, love & respect. We’re the VAST majority, we’re having fun & doing just fine. https://twitter.com/brianlynch/status/1004018603631362048 …

    I would think that Kelsey is a fake Twitter handle created by some 4CHANers...

    Exactly. And plenty of celebrities aren't on social media. It's not compulsory. The only ones who really need it I guess are the "models."

    Apparently, because it's "funny."

    "too bad she can't take a joke." etc.
