Before the Photoshopped images and the hashtag #TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown began to spread, Brown was a vocal social media advocate for The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Together movement. According to its website, the platform, "represents unity and support to these communities which include LGBTQ, Muslim, immigrant communities, communities of color, women, and all those who find themselves disenfranchised for being who they are, because no one is just one identity and all of us are under attack."
The memes in question took photos from Brown's social media sites and photoshopped homophobic slurs and statements across them. Though her personal Twitter page has been deactivated, her anti-bullying platform @Milliestopshate remains live.
