However, others quickly came to the starlet's defense.

Brown, who is engaged to Jake Bongiovi, son of Jon Bon Jovi, previously spoke about how she learned to use an American accent — and she owes it all to TV and movies.

"I watched Bugsy Malone and The Godfather when I was like 8," she previously said during a May 2022 appearance on The Tonight Show. "And I was like, but Hannah Montana is Oscar-nominating. It's so good. Hannah Montana is the best."

She continued, "Like the film, everything. Everything about it is amazing. And I got the American accent."

The starlet grew up in England and then moved to Florida.

Brown previously told Miley Cyrus that she was in love with the Disney show back in the day — and it motivated her to dive into acting.

"I wanted your job," Millie said during a March 2020 episode of Miley's Instagram Live program Bright Minded. "Like, I didn't know how to get your job but I was like, 'I want to be like, you know, Hannah Montana. I don't know how to do it.' And then I realized it was an actual job. And I was like, 'I want to do that. That sounds fun.' I didn't even know you could get money for it. I was like, 'I'll do it for free.'"
