According to NME, a video that has since been deleted showed Wolfhard walking into his hotel without stopping to greet fans who had gathered outside the building. This builds on the larger dialogue surrounding the show and its stars—who happen to be children. Purser shared a Twitter thread reminding fans that not only is it not his obligation to stop and greet fans, but the fact that he’s a child is just as important to understand.

“From one big sister to the world, don't you DARE make young actors feel guilty or indebted to you because they couldn't say hi,” she says.

Not to mention, Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner shared a similar message: “Damn… seeing fully grown adults wait outside the Stranger Things kids’ hotels etc, and then abuse them when they don’t stop for them is super weird… A. What adult in their right mind waits for a CHILD outside their hotel and B is then is offended when the CHILD doesn’t stop.”

Fellow Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp stood up for his friend, saying “we all work so hard, and need a break sometimes.”

This concept is not only for child actors from our favorite show, but it applies to our favorite musicians, too. No matter the age or level of fame, at the end of the day, they’re people just like us.
