TikTok star Hunter Echo revealed that he allegedly dated Millie Bobby Brown last year. The bad part: he was twenty years old while Brown was only sixteen at the time. Even more disturbing is how Echo described the supposed relationship.
Before reading, know that Echo’s descriptions contain disturbing details such as “grooming”. The TikTok star revealed the unpleasant rumors during a livestream gone wrong. Here are the details about Hunter Echo’s statement, his recent “apology”, and Millie Bobby Brown’s response to the dating claims.
Echo’s dating claims & eerie comments
On Tuesday, the TikTok star went on Instagram Live to talk with his fans. Unfortunately, things went awry when he decided to bring up past dating rumors about him & Millie Bobby Brown.
Echo, who is now twenty-one years old, began discussing his previous relationship with Brown. One viewer commented, “Imagine being a grown adult and dating a kid”. Echo responded, “Yeah, no I groomed her. Everything that I did was completely legal and it was approved by everybody that I was with. . . I have zero things to apologize for.”
He also claimed to have lived with Millie Bobby Brown for eight months. Echo also continued to insist that it wasn’t illegal because her parents were aware of the relationship. He said, “How the f**k is there a lawsuit? Her mom and dad knew about everything.”
Whether these details are true or not, many people watching his livestream were disturbed & offended at his disrespectful comments towards the teen actress. Portions of his livestream were even posted on YouTube to spread the TikTok star’s offensive comments about seventeen-year-old Millie Bobby Brown.
Hunter Echo’s response to the backlash
As expected, the twenty-one-year-old TikTok star came under some serious heat after his livestream. Hunter Echo decided to address the livestream in a TikTok video. He said, “I wanted to address the livestream incident that happened. It should never have happened. In those two to three hours, I was getting more and more drunk.”
He continued, “After I kept seeing how negative the comments were and seeing and hearing what people were saying to me when they don’t know about anything. I was getting me more and more irritated. I became careless and said stuff that should never have been said.”
“I’m also seeing a lot of clips all over the internet of certain parts of it because people are trying to make it 10 times worse. There are already stories that are completely not correct that were never said. It’s all being fabricated. You guys are spreading stuff that’s not true at all,” he added.
Echo concluded the apology saying, “The livestream I am sorry for. I am not proud of how I spoke. It sounded very immature. It looked horrible on my family, it looked horrible on me, it looked horrible on my friends. I should have ended it, the moment it started getting bad but I chose not to. I said what I said and I can’t take that back. I just want you to know that I’m not okay with what I said. I’m not trying to justify it at all.”
Millie Bobby Brown’s response to the dating rumors
Brown has not personally addressed the offensive livestream, yet her representatives discussed their plans with TMZ on Tuesday. “Mr. Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest but also are irresponsible, offensive, and hateful.”
Her reps also detailed that rather than battling with Hunter Echo on Twitter, they will take action privately to stop any further rumors. They reported, “Instead of engaging in a public discourse with him through the press or on social media, we are taking action to ensure that he stops this behavior once and for all.”
