Stranger Things Actress Faces Backlash Over 'Provocative' Dress

Publish date:

The famous Stranger Things actress, Millie Bobby Brown has a message to the internet trolls who had bashed her for wearing a skin-tight snake patterned midi dress and “looking like an adult” with her high heels.

After posting a photo of the stylish outfit on Instagram, she asked her fans just last Saturday to do a fun request and writing “write a caption,” but was met with harsh comments from the platform’s users.

One said: “Act your age for once,” whilst another said “Don’t be in such a hurry to grow – enjoy being a kid cause it doesn’t last long.”


While the hate comments had been apparent to Brown’s posts, many people had come to Brown’s defense, also just last Sunday. A user wrote “I love people telling her to act her age… yet they are sitting on Instagram trying to bully a 12 year old… you know who does that??? Other 12 year olds. Perhaps you should take your own advice??” and another had added “Beautiful” on her comment.

Even her 16-year ex-boyfriend had come to aid the defense of Brown’s outfit, where celebrity musician Jacob Sartorius wrote: “Stunning.” The two had split up after seven months of dating and had announced their break-up just last July.

On her new post after the deleted Instagram story, Brown wrote: “Ik everyone on my last pic wants me to ‘act my age’ but quite frankly its my instagram and if I choose to post that picture and you don’t like it… scroll past it.”


Another post last Saturday wrote: “If we could spread love as quickly as we spread hate and negativity, what an amazing world we would live in.”

Brown had come back from Stranger Things just last July 4, 2019.
