"And if the roles were reversed and a 27y/o man said this about a 14 y/o people would be dragging him, but since she's a girl it's ok? wtf" one tweeted, while another fumed, "If a man messaged a 14 y/o girl with the same message would you be seeing it as a joke? Anyone anything for living their childhood dreams".

Wolfhard faced backlash on social media after someone tweeted a video of the actor passing fans without stopping and called him "heartless" in the caption. (Which he has every right to do.) One adult woman can be heard calling him "rude" in the footage.

Cast member Sophie Turner poses at a premiere for season 7 of the television series "Game of Thrones" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., July 12, 2017.

Stranger Things Season 1 fan favourite Barb may be dead, but actress Shannon Purser still has her co-stars' backs. "But he's human and he needs breaks too", she tweeted.

Square Enix to "aggressively" make games for Switch
Lastly, their expectations for Switch are "Very high", and they won't rule out any IPs when making games for the hybrid system. With the recent briefing, Square Enix has announced its future plans on the Nintendo Switch and bringing games to the West.


The 14-year-old - who plays Mike Wheeler in the 80s-set Netflix hit - left some fans disappointed on his current press tour after he did not stop to greet them outside a hotel where he was staying.

Noah Schnapp, who plays Wolfhard's onscreen buddy Will Byers (and his real-life friend), also chimed in. "It's intimidating", she continued. Imagine... you, a parent, walking with your 13 year old son/daughter and seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone ... at your kid. You would do anything you could to delete that persons photograph, and remove your child from that situation as soon as you could. She added that a child consenting to be on camera for a show or film doesn't imply his or her consenting "to be followed around with a camera in their face", she wrote.

I've never really got the whole celebrity thing to be honest, it's just weird to be in awe of somebody simply for doing their job.

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner has stepped up to defend a Stranger Things star after he was criticized for not meeting fans over the weekend. Doesn't that go against everything we teach our children anyway?
