Millie Bobby Brown Accused of Being a Bad Role Model After Recent Instagram Post | 22 Words

Millie Bobby Brown has been accused of being a "bad role model" following her most recent Instagram post.

Keep on reading to see what fans were so upset over...

Who hasn't heard of Millie Bobby Brown?

Starting out in drama workshops up and down the country, this English actress was scouted by a Hollywood talent agent who told her parents she could "mix it with the best kids in Hollywood."

All it took was for her parents to pack up their things and move to Los Angeles.

It only took a week for Millie to start rubbing elbows with up and coming stars and not only that, every agency she came into contact with offered to represent her. Imagine being that talented!

With the rest of Hollywood behind her, she stepped into the industry with ease.

She made appearances in well-known TV programmes including, Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy.

And in 2016, she landed her life-changing role in Stranger Things.

Starring as Eleven, a telekinetic prisoner who becomes obsessed with a snack called Eggo, the teen has undoubtedly found the most global success from the show.

The fourth season of Stranger Things is set to be released next year...

And young Millie's role as Eleven has well and truly rocketed her to stardom.

But growing up in the spotlight has come with its own challenges.

The problem with becoming "famous" is that you have to give up privacy. You're forced to watch your life unfold in a way that you could never imagine, with false news being spread about yourself as well as the people around you.

No stone has been left untouched.

The media scrutinizes anyone they can, spreading lies or false rumors, about even young children, just to sell a story. It's the worst aspect of becoming a celebrity and Millie Bobby Brown has obviously become a victim of the press.

It all started with her friendships...

Or, as some people claimed, her relationships. Millie was repeatedly seen hanging out with men much older than her which left fans unsettled.

One of the most scandalous was none other than music mogul Drake.

Drake was slammed for hanging out with the teenager on many occasions. Obviously, some think it was completely innocent but one of his "supposed" girlfriends was an eighteen-year-old model, who Drake first came into contact with when she was only sixteen and he was twenty-nine. Yikes.

And then the media jumped onto how she chooses to dress.

There's no denying that Millie doesn't dress like a normal teenager because, let's face it, what sixteen-year-old wears Gucci heels with a custom Louis Vuitton gown??

But never the less...

Millie's wardrobe choices have absolutely nothing to do with anyone else!

Yes, she may look a lot older than sixteen...

But what do you expect when a young girl is living in Hollywood and is hanging out with some of the most famous people in the world?!

But not only does Millie look a lot older than she is...

She's starting to act a lot older, too.

It seems that the teenager needs to start choosing her words wisely.

According to recent reports, she claimed she wanted to show everyone "what it’s like being a woman of her age." Firstly, you're not a woman... yet. A sixteen-year-old is a child.

She said she wanted to "wear more fitted clothing."

"I would really enjoy wearing more fitted clothes now," she said. "I feel like I’m becoming someone and being a woman so I just want to show that. I think about the girls who are going to look at the picture, those young girls that are going to look at me and if they think, 'Wow that’s what I should dress up as'."

What happened to teenagers being teenagers?

But now, fans have turned against Millie and are labeling the actress as a "bad role model" thanks to a recent Instagram post.

Millie posted a cute Instagram snap yesterday of her posing with a face mask.

She captioned the shot, "wear a mask. ty bye 😚." Harmless enough, right?


Amongst the usual comments of admiration from her young fans, Millie was greeted with a flood of negativity that was branding the actress as a "bad role model" and was slamming her for acting and looking a lot older than she is. Many were also criticizing themselves for not looking like the millionaire teenager which is extremely worrying.

Here's the post that caused all the drama:

Do you feel that Millie should be acting her age? And do you think it's fair that she has been branded as a bad role model for young girls and teenagers? Keep on scrolling to read about why fans were furious over a selfie of Millie and Mariah Carey...
