In a now deleted Instagram post, Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown uploaded a video of her night routine using her 'Florence by Mills' skincare products. The ensuing backlash was harsh as angry fans accused Millie of only pretending to use the products.
Afterwards, Millie posted an official apology on her Instagram account:
"I'm still learning the best way to share my routines as I get to know this space better - I'm not an expert. I thought doing a quick video replicating my personal process for that night was okay, but that's not what was conveyed. I understand, I appreciate all of your feedback on this journey, please keep sharing your thoughts and I will too! ily guys #loveandlight."
Unfortunately, though, fans are still sending her backlash for faking the skincare routine. Many are even comparing it to Kylie Jenner's controversy where Kylie uploaded an Instagram video of her using her 'Foaming Face Wash' for about 6 seconds before washing it off...
...Where fans could then clearly see a heavy amount of foundation on the towel.
It appears that Kylie didn't wash her face properly or even used the product efficiently, and she was just using the video as an advertisement for her product.
Kylie had also faced similar backlash as a result.
So what’s the big deal with Millie Bobby Brown's 'fake' skincare routine?
Basically, fans are annoyed that Millie tried to pass it off as her real skincare routine, and just pretending to use the 'Florence by Mills' products.
For example, in the video, Millie used phrases such as:
I [After applying one of her 'Florence by Mills' products] “Oh, you all immediately feel better.”
I “Now I’m going to put on the 'Dreamy Dew Moisturiser'.”
Although Millie's apology post explained that it was “a quick video replicating my personal process for that night”, fans thought it would've been better if Millie had explained that it was a quick replica instead of pretending that she was actually showing fans her skincare routine.
However, many fans are leaping to Millie's defence.
Amidst the backlash, there are many who argue that the video didn’t take away the fact that her products work.
Check out these fans' comments below:
I “Literally what’s the issue it’s fine and not at all hate worthy ok don’t send hate on the internet kids.”
I “Don’t hate on her she didn’t do anything wrong and her products work perfectly trust me :)”
I “The fact that I use Florence and I know that Millie is NOT scamming people.”
I “Honestly you guys need to get a grip and leave the girl alone.”
Others are also defending Millie by saying that she'd actually shown herself applying the 'Florence by Mills' products properly in previous advertisement videos.
What's this about a new project, 'A Time Lost' with Millie Bobby Brown?
Well, Millie Bobby Brown and her sister, Paige Brown, is teaming up with Netflix to produce a movie called “A Time Lost”. It’s currently in development, and no cast has been reported as of yet, so it's still unknown whether Millie will be acting in it.
Until then, Stranger Things season 1-3 is available to stream on Netflix, and Stranger Things season 4 is expected to start shooting early next year in 2020.
