Millie Bobby Brown has shared an emotional Instagram video where she recounts being stalked and harassed by a fan while shopping with her mother.
The Enola Holmes star recalled being approached by the fan and asked if she could film her, then when the actress said no, the fan displayed some disgraceful behaviour.
“She said, ‘Can I take a video of you?’ I said, ‘Um, no.’ But why would anyone want to be taken a video of? Of me? It’s not like of the both of us,” Millie Bobby Brown explained via E! News, adding, “I don’t need to justify it to anyone. If I don’t want to be taken a video of, I don’t have to be.”
The fan (if you can even call her that at this point) wouldn’t stop harassing Millie and proceeded to film her despite being told that she wasn’t okay with it.

“I was paying and she walked past me and began to video me again. And I said, ‘I’m a human being. Like, what more can I ask from you?’ She said, ‘So I can’t take a video of a human being?’ And I said, ‘No, not when I said no.’ It just makes me upset when people try to push the boundary, and I just wish people were more respectful.”
Millie Bobby Brown began to tear up as she discussed the harassment, telling her followers, “I’m still trying to navigate this all and it’s still overwhelming… Where are my rights to say no?”
She ended the video by asking people to be more respectful of her and later wrote, “I am totally fine now. But was emotional in the moment because I felt uncomfortable and disrespected.”
Seriously, some people are fucked. Leave Millie Bobby Brown alone, FFS.
