Millie Bobby Brown has deleted her Twitter account after being on the receiving end of a targeted campaign of homophobic abuse.
The 14 year old actress, one of the young stars of Netflix’s smash hit ‘Stranger Things’, has been the face of an ironic Twitter trend in which Snapchat photos and footage of her have been edited to make it seem as if she’s endorsing hatred of gay people.
