'Stranger Things' Star Millie Bobby Brown Wants To Stop Bullying With Her Positive New Twitter Account

"I want this account to share love and positivity."

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, who was just nominated for an Emmy for her performance as Eleven, is using her platform for good. The 13-year-old actress just started a brand-new Twitter account promoting kindness online.

Brown tweeted the new handle, @Milliestopshate, from her verified main account Monday afternoon. "I want this account to share love and positivity," the description reads. "Let's stop bullying."


As of now, the account has nearly 8,000 followers. Brown encouraged fans to "share stories and love," adding that she, in turn, would tweet "encouragement and advice." 

So far, the account has lived up to its promise. Brown has retweeted several comments supporting the project, and offered advice to a young fan having problems with bullying, and another dealing with mental illness. "Remember I'll always support you," Brown wrote.

Brown isn't the only young Stranger Things star who has promoted positive behavior through social media. Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin on the show, warmed hearts last year when he started sharing selfies he took with fans. Matarazzo encouraged fans to "spread kindness and positive vibes."

Considering the first season of the Netflix series touches on the issue of bullying, it's wonderful to see the cast — especially the youngest members — doing their part to stop negativity in real life.

"Love that you're doing this!" one Twitter user who had been bullied growing up wrote of Brown's new account. "Hugs to all of you!"
