"Imagine being 14 and having random strangers you don't know stalk you and demand your time and attention."

Ever since the release of Stranger Things 2, we've seen a HUGE surge in popularity for each of the actors in the show. Millie Bobby Brown seems to be everywhere (more so than last year), Charlie Heaton has found his private live being written about all of a sudden and Finn Wolfhard has had to deal with some pretty wild stuff on social media that no 14-year-old should have to put up with. 

This weekend he found himself, once again, in the middle of a massive beef on Twitter after a fan called him rude when he wouldn't stop and take a picture with them.

Chandler's Twitter account has now been made private and the video is no longer available to view but here's what happened:

In the first clip in the video, Finn is walking out of his hotel and into the car as the guys says: "Hi Finn, I've never met you." Finn replies "Hey." In the second half of the video, Finn arrives back at his hotel and the guy asks for a picture. When Finn walks past the fan without stopping, he proceeded to call him rude.

Not only should adults NOT be hanging outside the hotels of minors (I mean, it's wild people still do that for actual adult celebrities too), there is absolutely ZERO correlation between his fans and his success, like this guy suggested. His talent alone brought him to the place he is now. What kind of deluded entitlement do these people have?! 

Needless to say, thousands of fans on Twitter rushed to Finn's defence, pointing out that he's a fourteen year old boy who is under absolutely no obligation to stop and talk to fans. Finn also liked a few of the tweets in response to the original video.









Stranger Things' Shannon Purser also came to Finn's defence, explaining what it's like for her, as an adult, to have to deal with fans from the show waiting for her outside venues or hotels.



Even Noah Schnapp had his say on the matter, driving home the point that the kids in the show are exactly that... they're kids. Considering the absolutely brutal press tour they're been on promoting the show, it's understandable that they would want a break from everything.


Can we all just let this children live please? Stop sexualising them, stop treating them like they owe you something and just let them L-I-V-E.
