So why did Millie Bobby Brown delete her TikTok?
Fans believed that Brown’s Instagram message was meant to explain why she deleted her TikTok account. She appeared to be telling her fans that she did it because of the negativity and hate that she encountered on the platform.
Some believed that Brown’s message confirmed speculation that she was upset by TikTok users who trolled her because she used a Samsung Galaxy Android phone instead of an iPhone.
Some people who came to her defense pointed out that she used the phone because she had a deal with the brand.
But others were convinced that it was the homophobic memes that upset her.
Brown previously deleted her Twitter account
Brown deleted her Twitter account in 2018 after people started sharing memes and jokes on the social media platform that portrayed her as homophobic although there was no evidence that the memes were based on fact.
The so-called “Millie Bobby Brown is homophobic” memes involved social media users ascribing homophobic comments to Brown using pictures and videos of the actress.
In other memes, people would claim they met the Stranger Things actress somewhere and she did something horrible or nasty to them.
Since she deleted her Twitter account, fans have been trying to push back against people who upload the offensive Millie Bobby Brown memes.
Despite the push back from her fans, people continued to post the offensive memes on social media until she deleted her TikTok account.
