Jimmy Fallon And The Stranger Things Cast Finally Got #JusticeForBarb
And Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) did a Nicki Minaj impression.

On Wednesday, Netflix confirmed a second season of its surprise summer hit Stranger Things, and the show's pre-teen cast went out on the New York publicity circuit, hitting up the Facebook headquarters and eventually making their way to 30 Rock for an appearance on The Tonight Show. That's where four of the cast members—Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Finn Wolfhard (Mike)—turned up in a sketch that finally answered the Internet's call: #justiceforbarb.
With Fallon playing Steve and head writer and staff redhead AD Miles donning Barb's mom jeans, the sketch brought back the Internet's favorite Stranger Things character from her untimely demise in the Upside Down. Barb's back, and girl is pissed.
(Have we reached Peak Barb? Probably.)
Also, in a segment called "Stranger Strings," the four kids and Jimmy Fallon wrote down facts on note cards, each taking turns reading them aloud and spraying the person about whom the card reveals an embarrassing secret. Naturally, it resulted in pandemonium as the four kids attacked Fallon with Silly String (which, quite honestly, might not be the first time that's happened?).
While most of the facts aren't too crazy (one of the kids still sleeps with a night light, and guess what? SO DO I), it's all worth it for the grand reveal that Millie Bobby Brown does a perfect rendition of Nicki Minaj's verse from Kanye West's "Monster."
