‘Stranger Things’ cast respond to fan criticism and ‘gross’ sexualization
    2017-November-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THEY have had a lot of attention since the show started last year — not all of it welcome.

A furore has erupted after some of the young stars in “Stranger Things 2” were sexualized in the press and social media, while others have experienced the glare of fame in everyday life.

Shannon Purser, who plays Barb in the series, responded to one Twitter user who criticized her co-star Finn Wolfhard after the 14-year-old failed to stop for photos outside his hotel and was branded “rude” by the user.

“No actor is under any obligation to stop for anyone. Finn is an incredibly kind human. But he’s human and he needs breaks too,” she wrote in a tweet.

In a number of tweets, she expressed how she too gets the same treatment from over-excited fans, but is better equipped to deal with it.

“Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner also backed him up in a lengthy thread, writing: “It doesn’t matter if they are an actor ... they are kids first. Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe.”

Wolfhard, who plays Mike, hasn’t responded to the comments about him greeting fans, but did have something to say about a flirtatious message from model Ali Michael.

The 27-year-old said in an Instagram post that he should “contact her in four years,” when he will be 18.

He said in a video published by TMZ that being propositioned in that way was “nuts” and that he found Michael’s comments “gross.”

The model later apologized, saying in a statement to Teen Vogue that it was “never my intention (nor has it ever been) to sexualize a minor in any way, shape or form.”

Purser’s comments from the weekend sparked a wider debate about how the show’s young actors are portrayed.

One of the show’s teen stars, 13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown, has been listed as one of the reasons TV is “sexier than ever” by W magazine, among a group of much older actors including Nicole Kidman and James Franco.

Mara Wilson, who starred in “Matilda” and began acting when she was 5 years old, gave her response to how young stars are treated. “It’s really not that hard not to sexualize children and teens,” she wrote.(SD-Agencies)
