She has not yet issued a statement regarding her exit from the microblogging site but multiple outlets claim the memes as the reason for her departure.
Brown’s withdrawal comes over a week after Star Wars: The Last Jedi actor Kelly Marie Tran deleted all of her Instagram posts due to months of online harassment.
Before Tran, her co-star Daisy Ridley was also chased off Instagram by trolls for her pro-gun control stance and appearance in 2016.
