Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has deactivated her Twitter account after her picture was used for a series of homophobic memes.

The meme also includes images of the young star with added text purported to be written by Brown. Brown is a supporter of LGBTQ rights and an anti-bullying advocate; she publicly displayed a GLAAD Together movement pin to the MTV Movie and TV awards a year ago.

The reason behind the memes remains unclear, though several Twitter users have claimed they originated as an inside joke for LGBT tweeters.

Millie - who has been extremely vocal in her support for the LGBTQ+ community and stance against bullying - has chose to deactivate her social media after people made her to center of this inappropriate "trend".

Millie Bobby Brown has left Twitter. Sartorius has not commented on social media about Brown's account deletion.

There's a history of users bullying public figures on social media, until they've decided they've had enough.

The memes depicted the actress saying homophobic quotes and have been removed by Twitter in the wake of the incident.

Brown will return to play Eleven in the upcoming third season of Netflix's Stranger Things.
