No One Came To This Kids ‘Stranger Things’ Birthday Party And Here’s How Millie Bobby Brown Reacted

There’s something about ‘Stranger Things’ that seems to have attracted the nicest people to the cast. Following on from the well-known exploits of David Harbour (who plays policeman Jim Hopper in the show), some Stranger Things cast members have reached out to support a heartbroken boy after nobody showed up to his birthday party.

Young Aaron Alambat held nothing back on his ‘Stranger Things’ themed party, with a kickass cake, Demogorgon blood punch, and party decorations based on the popular TV show creating the perfect atmosphere. Sadly, the classmates that he invited all decided that they would give Aaron’s party a miss. For anybody, let alone a child at school, something like that can be extremely upsetting.

Aaron’s sister Ayen was, putting it mildly, pretty angry with the situation. “My brother invited 8 of his classmates for his Stranger Things party & none of their punk selves showed up,” she wrote on Twitter, together with some pics of Aaron’s sweet set-up.

Her tweet quickly went viral, with tons of sympathetic people offering their support and telling Aaron that they would’ve loved an invite. Ayen’s tweet has since been shared over 57,000 times and eventually came to the attention of some of the cast of ‘Stranger Things,’ with Millie Bobby Brown replying: “What!!!! Oh Well, You can let them all know that everyone on behalf of Stranger Things would’ve come! I think you’re awesome and next year I would like an invite… Please?”

Way to make a kid’s day! Fellow star Gaten Matarazzo also joined in, offering to bring the cake for next year’s birthday bash. Ayen later shared pics of her brother smiling, and it turns out he had an amazing birthday after all, despite the no-shows. They probably regret it now!

Scroll down below to check out how it all unfolded, and let us know what you think in the comments!

The internet felt for the guy and people started congratulating him online

After her post went viral, Ayen thanked everybody and was about to wrap it up…

But it wasn’t complete until the star of the show Millie Bobby Brown noticed the tweet

My first real birthday party my Grandma (only person who raised me) saved for months and put on a HUGE chuck e cheese party for me, I invited my entire class.. No one shows, at all, my entire party we are the only two ppl at the huge table, while other kids parties filled the place we sat there the same as we did ever year, alone, I gave all my tickets I won that night to another family & went home.. To this day, never had a party with more than 2 other people 😢 I know how he felt

When my eldest was in 2nd grade, we spent all our money to rent out a putt putt golf place for his party and nobody showed, not even one person. After that, we made birthdays family affairs so nobody would ever be heartbroken again. We do movies or gaming parties with just us and it's really nice to enjoy it and not stress over anything.

This makes me so mad because the PARENTS! What kind of human RSVPs and does not show up? I wouldn't do this today because my parents would have beat me senseless if I had done this to another kid back in the day. They raised me right! Not advocating for beating kids senseless, btw, but seriously, teach your kids some everyday manners and respect. Sheesh! I'm so mad right now!

I'm with you! This is what happens when parents don't teach their kids manners, empathy, consideration + all the stuff WE were taught! (my parents + grandparents would have beat me senseless, too!) Happy Birthday, Aaron! :)
