Mariah Carey is facing backlash after posting a picture with Millie Bobby Brown showing the two catching up without wearing masks. The 50-year-old singer is getting put through the wringer with fans after sharing the shot posing up-close and personal with the “Stranger Things” actress during a “surprise visit.”
Taking to her social media, Mariah Carey posted the snap on Monday, August 17 and while some were impressed with their surprising friendship, others took this as an opportunity to slam the duo for not wearing masks or social distancing.
In the shot, Mariah Carey is seen smiling big alongside the 16-year-old Netflix star who is definitely not the recommended six-feet away. “A surprise visit by Enola Holmes a.k.a. princess Millie! ?,” the five-time Grammy winner captioned their catchup pic.
While Millie Bobby Brown replied back by writing, “love you so much ?,” others weren’t impressed and immediately began shooting down the stars for meeting up during the pandemic. “Put a mask on Mariah!” one person ordered.

“That’s not physical distancing,” added someone else. “Where’s your masks!!!!????” questioned another. “Where is your mask Mariah. Irresponsible,” fired off a fourth follower.
But not everyone was angry over the duo’s surprising shot. Many left comments of support on Mariah Carey’s post. “This is the most unexpected friendship ever but I love it so much,” one follower commented. “Skinny legends in da mf house y’all better stan ?????,” added a second. “I STAN for this friendship so much,” someone else wrote. While many were taken back by the “Stranger Things” star’s surprise visit, several pointed out this isn’t the first time they’ve gotten together.
Back in November, Mariah Carey surprised her nine-year-old twins — Moroccan and Monroe — by introducing them to their favorite actress, Millie Bobby Brown. They made sure to capture the sweet moment and couldn’t stop smiling while posing with their mom and the actress.
“Roc and Roe’s best day of their 8 year old lives,” Mariah captioned the adorable shot on her social media, before turning her focus on Millie Bobby Brown. “Thank you Millie Bobby Brown for this moment, we had a blast!”
