Drake’s best kid friend, Millie Bobby Brown, raised a few concerned eyebrows when she posted a picture of herself on Instagram wearing a very mature outfit. Some felt it was a bit too mature for a 14-year-old to be dressed like a hostess at SUR, even if it was just as a hostess at brunch service. But Millie doesn’t care what you think. She’s her own “woman” and will dress and do as she pleases. If you don’t like it, you can unfollow her. Only don’t actually do that, her dad probably wouldn’t like that. He’s got the family’s bottom line to think about. If you don’t like it, just don’t comment, ok?
Millie is hardly in Ariel Winter territory. Her dress was as demure as snakeskin gets. But since she’s a young woman, any little hint at sexuality is bound to get picked up on and discussed. It’s fucked up, but that’s how it works:
According to US Weekly, many of Millie’s followers commented with their concern that she was dressed inappropriately for her age.
People quickly began weighing in on the British teenager’s fashion choice, with one writing, “Girl you’re 14 no point in trying to look older,” and another saying, “Act your age for once.”
Apparently, her 16-year-old ex boyfriend Jacob Sartorius commented that she looked “stunning”. Here’s the rub, nobody is ever going to accuse Jacob of dressing too mature or of not acting his age.
Where’s the outrage for boys? However, Bobbie did invite comment by captioning the photo “write a caption”. This is why 14-year-olds should have parents. Whatever role Millie’s parents are playing in her use of social media, they’re seemingly doing nothing to shut down the attention, come to her defense, or guide her interactions. Millie had to do that on her own. In an IG story, she offered a rebuttal.
Ik [sic] everyone on my last pic wants me to ‘act my age’ but quite frankly its [sic] my Instagram and if I choose to post that picture and you don’t like it… scroll past it,” she wrote in a since-deleted Instagram Story.
To be fair, Millie’s parents were probably outraged over that pic too. Specifically outraged that she didn’t tag the makers of that dress and shoes so they can hit them up for some spon-con money.
