Los Angeles — Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account after users posted memes depicting her as homophobic.

The memes featured photos of the 14-year-old with homophobic slurs.

It is not clear why she was targeted. The actress' publicist did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on Thursday.

Brown has been a supporter of LGBTQ rights and created a secondary Twitter account @Milliestopshate in July 2017, to "share stories and love" and to " tweet encouragement and advice for situations that need love and help."

The account is still active but the last tweet shared was on 13 December.

Brown is set to return for the third season of the Netflix series.
