“Stranger Things” Star Caleb McLaughlin Says Racism From ‘Stranger Things’ Fans ‘Took a Toll on Me’

Caleb McLaughlin has revealed all he endured at the hands of fans of Stranger Things.

The actor shared this at the Heroes Comic Con Belgium convention over the weekend, where he talked about being the only Black male actor on Stranger Things.

“It definitely took a toll on me as a younger kid,” the actor said in the below video. “My very first Comic-Con, some people didn’t stand in my line because I was Black. Some people told me, ‘Oh I didn’t want to be in your line because you were mean to Eleven.’”

“Even now, some people don’t follow me or don’t support me because I’m Black,” Caleb continued, adding “Sometimes overseas, you feel the racism, you feel the bigotry. Sometimes it’s hard to talk about and for people to understand, but when I was younger, it definitely affected me a lot.”

He added, “Because I was born with this beautiful chocolate skin, I’m not loved,” he said. “But that’s why with my platform, I want to spread positivity and love because I do not give hate back to people who give hate to me.”
