Millie Bobby Brown can't believe that some Stranger Things fans don't like her on-screen boyfriend Mike Wheeler (Finn Wolfhard).
Recently she attended German Comic Con and during a Q&A, a fan asked Millie for her thoughts on her on-screen relationship, and she was left a little confused.
She asked: ‘My opinion? I mean, do you like him?’
The fan said they liked Eleven, but don’t like Mike, with Millie replying: ‘What? You don’t like Mike? In Germany you guys don’t like Mike? You know in America, people love Mike.’
The crowd certainly seemed to be in the ‘don’t like Mike’ camp. Millie then decided to get to the bottom of it.
She asked: ‘Can somebody tell me why they don’t like Mike? What’s wrong with him? He’s not a good boyfriend, is that it?’
But the fans insisted Mike isn’t a ‘good friend’. This comes after fans criticised him for neglecting his friendship with Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), and also being clueless about his struggle with sexuality.
‘Oh he’s not a good friend. There’s not much I can say about that. Although Finn, he’s a great friend. He’s the bestest friend,’ she laughed.
She added: ‘I’m shocked. I’m gonna call Finn and tell him not to come to Germany.’
