At a Comic Con event in Germany, Brown approached the stage to respond to a variety of queries from fans eager to meet the Stranger Things star.Millie Bobby Brown One response, though, appeared to offend some viewers, but the 19-year-old’s supporters have already rushed to her defense. Look it over:
In a video from the occasion, a fan named Annie said: “I’m really happy to be here. The distance to get here was considerable. I’m from Ukraine and I’m here.
Sincerely, I didn’t believe that would happen when Russia attacked Ukraine in February 2022, she continued. Sadly, the war has not ended, Annie continued. However, I’m hoping Ukraine wins soon.
And my inquiry is: What life lessons can you share with your followers?
Before British actress Brown responds, the panel’s host called Annie’s question a “deep question.”
Enola Holmes responds, pointing out that she is just 19 years old, “There is a mum in the crowd that will give better counsel than I can.
“I can’t provide you with any advice. I’m still a student, too.
British Actress continued by sharing a piece of advice that her grandma had given her.
“I would advise you to just be yourself, as I usually do. The only wisdom I can impart is what my mother and grandmother taught me, she added.
Other than that, girlfriend, I’m still learning.
The fan then asked the actor a question and requested that she say hello to her sister who was unable to make it to the Comic Con event.
Can you wave at me and say hello on my phone, please?
The host then informed the fan that due to time constraints, they would be unable to do so: “We have a lot of questions. Sorry, we only have a little over 15 minutes.
People’s Reaction on the Video
Following the actor’s apparent ‘dismissive’ reaction to the Ukrainian fan’s question, footage of the exchange has now circulated on the Internet.
To be honest, there was such a dichotomy of emotions in the questions, someone commented. To transition from saying things like “I’m from the war-torn Ukraine, I can’t believe I’m here,” to “Can you wave and say hi to my sister selfie.”
It’s challenging to ride that emotional rollercoaster in front of a crowd, especially.
Another said, “This is so typical, it’s strange… People will approach their favorite celebrity and say, “Hey, I just lost my brother, and I’m really upset and whatnot… Can you say hello to my best friend who isn’t able to join me today?
It’s embarrassing and awkward.
A third supporter said, “It was an excellent response.” “Why are we asking a teen actor for life advice, lol? We’re not expecting any suggestions, lol.
Last but not least, someone said: “I don’t think it was dismissive. It’s acceptable to say when you’re young that you don’t know the answers or how to fully comprehend an experience that someone else is sharing with you.
Furthermore, this isn’t the first criticism British actress Brown has received for her panel discussion at Comic-Con.
Live in the Moment
Additionally, British Actress Brown’s ‘attitude’ after telling supporters to ‘put their screens down’ caused a rift in society.
The 19-year-old, who was participating in a panel, was being recorded by an audience member when they requested that the actor say hello to one of their friends while being filmed.
She complied, but British Actress said, “We have to live in the moment, put your screens down.”
Although it was intended to be a piece of encouraging counsel, the exchange has since given rise to a discussion among followers on social media when a TikTok video of the incident went viral.
In response to the British actress’s response, several said that she was “too young for this kind of attitude.”
Others, however, were a little bit more sympathetic. She was very irritated.Millie Bobby Brown Another TikTok user wrote, “I’d be too. The majority of people didn’t even have questions.”
