4.1.38 Replication and User Name Length

The maximum length for user names in MySQL 8.0 is 32 characters. Replication of user names longer than 16 characters fails when the replica runs a version of MySQL previous to 5.7, because those versions support only shorter user names. This occurs only when replicating from a newer source to an older replica, which is not a recommended configuration.
