"Stranger Things" actor Millie Bobby Brown, who turned 16 a day ago, posted an emotional post on her birthday, explaining how she dealt with online bullying and unecessary negativity. "Ya girls 16... has felt like a long time coming.

I feel like change needs to happen for not only this generation but the next. our world needs kindness and support in order for us children to grow and succeed. The last few years haven't been easy, I'll admit that. "There are moments I get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualization, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me. But not ever will I be defeated. I will continue doing what I love and spreading the message in order to make change," Millie wrote on Instagram.
