  Could Meghan Markle Earn an Emmy Nomination for Her Final Season of 'Suits'? A rep for the USA Network confirmed to ET that the Duchess of Sussex was submitted in the supporting actress category.Markle's category is highly competitive, with standout stars like Chrissy Metz from This Is Us; Thandie Newton from Westworld; Ann Dowd and Alexis Bledel from The Handmaid's Tale; Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things; the ladies from Orange Is the New Black; and Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones among the actresses vying for a nomination. The likelihood of Markle -- who has never earned a major award nomination for Suits -- slipping in for a surprise nomination for her final season is slim.

The reason behind the memes remains unclear, though several Twitter users have claimed they originated as an inside joke for LGBT tweeters.

Until the recent deactivation, the teenage actress was active on the social media platform, frequently posting about the events of her day, political statements, and photos of her relationship with YouTuber and musician Jacob Sartorius. Sartorius has not commented on social media about Brown's account deletion.

Brown's secondary, anti-bullying Twitter account, @Milliestopshate, is still live, though. She also still has her Instagram account, but has deactivated the comments section.

There's a history of users bullying public figures on social media, until they've decided they've had enough.

Leslie Jones left Twitter in 2016 as a result of racist Twitter memes and another Star Wars actress, Daisy Ridley, quit Instagram after receiving backlash from an anti-gun post.

Brown will return to play Eleven in the upcoming third season of Netflix's Stranger Things.
