The young British actress revealed that she will not be able to attend this year’s MTV movie and TV Awards by the sudden knee injury.
“Stanger Things” actress Millie Bobby Brown has announced that she will no longer be present at the upcoming MTV Film and TV Awards by a “milestone” injury.
On Friday, the 14-year-old TV star revealed that she split her kneecap in a major accident and not being able to walk from the MTV Film and TV Awards’ red carpet.
In an Instagram video, Brown, who showed off crutches and a knee brace, apologized to fans for missing the big event.
“I’ve actually never had a broken bone, except for now. I’ve split my kneecap,” Brown explained. “Of the doctor, he told me to rest. So, I will not attend the MTV Awards this weekend.”
The young star not to disclose how they hurt, but they wanted to take the time to wish her “Strange Things” castmates good luck, as the popular Netflix series has been nominated for six MTV Awards, including two for themselves in the categories of Best Performance in a Show and Best Kiss.
“I hope Holes, Caleb, Finn, Sadie and Noah have the best time,” Brown continued in her video. “And I find them so sweet, so I wish you all the best and I am sending my good fortune with you. And I will be there in spirit.”
The news of Brown’s sudden injury follows the news that the actress deleted her Twitter account after becoming the subject of homophobic memes.
The 14-year-old star, her account will be deleted after the hashtag “#TakeDownMillieBobbyBrown” in a rapid. According to TheWrap, the tag first appeared in November, but resurfaced in June to coincide with Pride Month.
Online trolls are all different selfies and media in which she’s placed on the account and photoshopping them with crude and homophobic captions designed to the star, who is pro-STRAIGHT, seem to be vehemently against homosexuality. As Vanity Fair notes, the star wore a pin to the MTV Film and TV Awards last year in support of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s “Together” movement.
But despite the social media attention, the young starlet continues on Instagram and has a strong almost 17 million followers.
