Many have pointed out that Brown, who was one of the first recipients of MTV's gender-neutral awards a year ago, has always been a vocal supporter of LGBT rights.

The "Stranger Things" star has strangely become the target of a homophobic meme which has now led to the the actress to delete her Twitter account.

Leslie Jones left Twitter in 2016 as a result of racist Twitter memes and another Star Wars actress, Daisy Ridley, quit Instagram after receiving backlash from an anti-gun post.

For some reason, internet trolls Photoshopped fake anti-gay images onto pictures of Brown, who is active on social media including Twitter and Instagram.

"You could genuinely cause so much damage to her reputation and it's weird as f**k".

Millie herself frequently posted on social media, updating on her whereabouts and posting sweet messages with boyfriend YouTuber Jacob Sartorius.

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

Brown has not commented about deleting her Twitter account or about the trolling.

But there are some who say the memes started as an inside joke within the LGBT community.
