As the filming for the final season of Stranger Things is about to begin, a fresh controversy has emerged around Stranger Things. The beloved series is now facing calls for a boycott due to concerns about the problematic behavior of the cast. The users are putting pressure on Netflix to either replace the actors or face the consequences.
The debate started with Noah Schnapp, who portrays Will Byers, making a contentious statement on the Israel-Palestine conflict. However, it escalated when Schnapp liked a video that mocked both Muslims and the LGBTQ community. The video targets support for Palestinians within U.S. college campuses. In one segment, an individual emphasizes the platform's inclusivity, mentioning support for "LGBTQH," where the "H" represents Hamas.
This has resulted in a huge backlash for the Stranger Things star as people are demanding his removal from the show. The actor has been trending on Twitter with many people threatening to cancel Netflix if they don't replace the actor. Even Will Byers stans on Twitter have distanced themselves from the actor. After the backlash, Noah Schnapp has lost around 600k followers on Instagram.
