Brown, who plays Jane “Eleven” Hopper on the beloved Netflix series, accepted the Best Performance award in a pre-taped video message, after a split kneecap prevented her from attending the event. The young actress used the speech, which you can check out above, to respond to recent bouts of cyber bullying on social media, which seem to have motivated her to deactivate her Twitter account.
“Since I know there are many young people watching this, and even to the adults — they could probably use the reminder, too — I was taught, if you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t say it,” Brown explained. “There should be no space in this world for bullying, and I’m not going to tolerate it and neither should any you. If you need a reminder of how well you are and to rise above the hate, message me on Instagram.”
