The popular actress of Stranger Things, Millie Bobby, used the platform of 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards to send out an important message to the world.


Bobby wasn't able to actually attend the music event because of a knee injury, but she sent a video message accepting her award for Best Performance in a Show.

In the excerpt of the video message posted on Twitter, Bobby expressed her gratitude toward her fans who have always supported her and told that playing the character of 'Eleven' in Stranger Things changed her life in "most incredible ways.'

Bobby then went on to raise the issue of bullying and spoke out against the internet trolls who made her the subject of homophobic memes earlier this June.


"Finally, since I know there are many young people watching this—and even to the adults, too —they could probably use the reminder that I was taught: If you don't have anything nice to say, just don't say it," she told in the video.

Bobby then added that there should be "no space in this world" for bullying. She also stated that she wasn't going to tolerate bullying any longer and neither should anyone else.


As an encouragement to her fans, Bobby also told them to "message" her on Instagram if they needed to be reminded about their true worth or if they wanted "to rise above the hate." The kind gesture from the star would definitely inspire a lot of her fans and supporters.

One of the Twitter users, Braelynn May, pointed this out and wrote in a Tweet, '[She] always uses her awards and limelight to show compassion.'

Besides showing her concern regarding the serious issue of bullying, Bobby also took time to mention all her fans for always supporting her and for "always being there."
