The young stars of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things have basically spent the last few years growing up in the public eye. As a result, people have taken it upon themselves to monitor whether these kids are getting to act like kids. If these observers think that something seems out of order, they are more than willing to make their thoughts known.
Case in point, Millie Bobby Brown, the 14-year old who plays Eleven on the popular Netflix series, caused quite a stir when she posted a picture of herself wearing what some considered an age-inappropriate outfit to Instagram.
She shared the blurry snaps of her laughing and wearing a knee-length body-con dress with heels. Seems innocent enough. But people were worked up over just how tight the dress is. Commenters seemed worried that this picture is evidence that Millie Bobby Brown is growing up too fast. One concerned commenter said, "What 14-year-old dresses like this?...a lot of people will try to take advantage of you because of looks like this. Be careful and be smart." Another said, "Isn't she like 13. Why is she trying to look like a grown woman?" One kept it short and sweet, simply saying, "act your age."
Several of Millie's fans commented in return. They voiced their opinions that the dress choice was totally fine. One pointed out that the dress is relatively long, "she's literally only showing her ankles. Let her live her life." While others shared their support by telling her to "ignore the haters." One person commented on the policing of the young stars life, "Pretty sure she has her own parents y'all."
What do you think? Is Millie Bobby Brown growing up too fast? Is the dress inappropriate? Or, should people just let her be? Let us know in the comments!
