With Nielsen reporting almost 16 million viewers for the second season of "Stranger Things", the Netflix hit has never been bigger - and the same is true for the show's young stars. To celebrate the show, James Corden invited stars Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and Noah Schnapp on The Late Late Show for a insane sketch about their imaginary musical pasts.
"Hey everybody! I don't wanna ex-communicate anyone from this fandom, but if you are for real you will not harass my friends, or co-workers", he wrote on Twitter yesterday. And sadly, things must have escalated, because Finn Wolfhard took to Twitter to call out this behavior, and we can't retweet this important message enough. "So, I called up the boys, and I said, 'Let's get the band back together for one more night, '" added Wolfhard.
A number of other actors have spoken out in support of Wolfhard and the other kids - Shannon Purser, who played Barb in Stranger Things, and Sophie Turner of Game of Thrones fame have both defended the cast's right to, y'know, be kids. "Think b4 ya type boiiii".
In the piece, titled "The sexualization of the Stranger Things kids needs to stop", Jones contends that fans of the series have forgotten that the actors are just kids and are lusting inappropriately over the young stars.More news: Star Wars Battlefront 2 lays out its FREE DLC Plans
In his tweets, he also referred to criticism that stars of the show receive online.
Now Finn himself has responded to the "gross" comment, telling TMZ when asked about it: "Oh that was nuts".
Stranger Things 2 is available to stream now on Netflix.
