Millie Bobby Brown, 16, Reflects on Cruel Media Treatment, Insults & Sexualization on Her Birthday

Millie Bobby Brown is getting serious on her birthday.

The Stranger Things star, who just turned 16 on Wednesday (February 19), opened up in a post on her Instagram.

“ya girls 16 :) 16 has felt like a long time coming. i feel like change needs to happen for not only this generation but the next. our world needs kindness and support in order for us children to grow and succeed,” she wrote.

“the last few years haven’t been easy, I’ll admit that. there are moments i get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualization, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me. but not ever will i be defeated. ill continue doing what i love and spreading the message in order to make change. let’s focus on what needs changing and I hope this video informs you on the things that go on behind the scenes of the headlines and flashing lights. dont worry I’ll always find a way to smile ;) leggo 16 ♡,” she wrote.

The video, which includes headlines and candid footage of the young star, is soundtracked by Justin Bieber‘s “Changes.”
