On January 24, Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) addressed those who attacked her appearance by saying she looked "old" in an Instagram Story.
For those who don't know, there are several people who consistently slams Millie for her outfit choices or her appearance. An ongoing theme is accusing Millie of looking too "old" for her age.
Finally, Millie spoke out about the hate in an Instagram Story, but not in a way one might expect.
The Instagram Story starts with Millie using the current Instagram filter trend, "How Old Do I Look?" And the result? Well, the app believed she looked "28".
Check out Millie's response below:
I "So all the people out there who thought I looked 50 at the SAG awards, you're wrong. I look 28."
And we love her witty quip!
For those who don't know, the app "How Old Do I Look" is wildly inaccurate with several reviews citing that it added an average of 10 years onto the average person. It currently has a 2.2/5 rating on the App Store, with people criticizing its inaccuracy.
Unfortunately, Millie Bobby Brown is no stranger to haters calling her "old".
In fact, Millie has been criticized for looking "old" ever since she reached her teens. The most recent event of Millie being attacked for her appearance was on January 19 when Millie attended the SAG Awards 2020.
Several fans blamed Millie's stylist for dressing her in a mature look.
I "Millie Bobby Brown’s stylist should sacked. She is just 15-years-old but looked at least 30 at the Sag awards last night. So disturbing."
I "god can millie bobby brown's stylist stop making her look 30 years older what is wrong with being a teenager and showing off her youth why does she need to look ~serious all the time what is the DEAL."
However, fans quickly rushed to Millie's defence, calling out these people for their blatant double standards, hypocrisy and their lack of knowledge of what girls Millie's age would normally wear.
Check out their comments below:
I "stan twitter: stop shaming girls for what they wear also stan twitter: OMG WHY IS MILLIE BOBBY BROWN DRESSED LIKE THAT OMG THIS IS SO INAPPROPRIATE YUCK I WOUDNT LET MY DAUGHTER DRESS LIKE THAT ALSO SHE LOOKS SO OLD."
I "noah schnapp wears an expensive suit twitter: he killed that! he looks so grown up! millie bobby brown wears an expensive suit twitter: she looks weird and old. she needs to dress her age."
I [...] Eveyone that has a negative opinion about what she's wearing need to open their eyes and look around at what most girls her age and younger are wearing before critisizing her.
