"Stranger Things" star, Charlie Heaton was unable to attend the premiere of the Netflix hit's second season due to the fact that he was detained by law enforcement for drug possession.
The British actor, who plays Jonathan Byers in "Stranger Things," was caught with traces of cocaine at LAX and was barred entry into the US.
The young star,23, was not arrested but merely held and then sent back to London after a drug-sniffing dog detected trace amounts of cocaine in his luggage.
Of course this set off a fire on Twitter! Especially with diehard fans of the quirky show.
A petition? Really? That seems intense for a little bit of cocaine and for a television show.
(Though cocaine is NOT okay children!)
They can’t cut Charlie Heaton from Stranger Things because I need to see a relationship between him and Nancy play out on the show— kayla (@kaylaariv) October 28, 2017

You rookie, Charlie Heaton! If you'd hidden your cocaine in a gun you'd have sailed through!— Sunny (@sunnycivilian) October 29, 2017
