Fans started tweeting that Wolfhard was "heartless". After recent events involving harassment (including the sexualization of 13-year-old Millie Bobby Brown) and uncomfortable public run-ins with fans for multiple Stranger Things cast members, Wolfhard took to his Twitter to call out this behavior.

Wolfhard was harassed on Twitter after he didn't stop to say hi to a Stranger Things fan and the incident was caught on a viral video.
Now Finn himself has responded to the "gross" comment, telling TMZ when asked about it: "Oh that was nuts".
And after being told Ali had issued an apology, he added: 'That's good that she apologised.
