"The joke here seems to be that it's so wildly out of character and unbelievable for Millie Bobby Brown to act violently or intolerantly, that presenting her as such makes people laugh", Vulture notes. Below are some examples of the meme, which include homophobic slurs.

The hashtag, #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown, began surfacing again this month as well.

Millie Bobby Brown Quits Twitter After People Make Fake Homophobic Memes About Her

According to Variety, the 14-year-old actress - who is perhaps best known for starring as Eleven in Netflix's Stranger Things - left Twitter after online bullies turned her into a homophobic meme.

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

The memes depicted Brown as a "violent homophobe" and earned thousands of likes and retweets.

In actuality, away from satirical memes, Millie Bobby Brown is a passionate supporter of LGBTQ rights.
