Caleb McLaughlin is opening up about the racism and bigotry he’s experienced since Netflix’s Stranger Things first blew up. 

McLaughlin, 20, discussed the topic at the Heroes Comic Con Belgium convention over the weekend while looking back at his first ever Comic Con experience, which he says was plagued with racism. 

“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 [Millie Bobby Brown].’ Even now some people don’t follow me or don’t support me because I’m Black,” the actor recalled, per Variety
