Millie Bobby Brown’s ex has apologised after she was left reeling following a series of claims he made in a livestream.
TikTok star Hunter Echo had alleged that him and the Stranger Things actress had a sexual relationship when she was 16-years-old and he was 20 but Hunter has now apologised for how he handled the whole thing, admitting he got more and more drunk throughout.
He uploaded a clip to his TikTok account, where he apologised for sounding “very immature”.
“I’m also seeing lots of clips of it over the internet and people are trying to make it 10 times worse,” he said.
“Besides the point, the livestream – I am sorry for. I’m not proud of it at all, or how I spoke.”
“It sounded very immature, looked horrible. I am sorry for doing that livestream. I should have ended it, but I chose not to. I said what I said and I can’t take it back. I just want you to know I’m not OK with what I said. I’m not trying to justify it at all.”
And Hunter said he was riled up by the negative comments made by fans online.
“I wanted to address the livestream incident that happened. It should never have happened in the first place. It was stupidity on my part. It was not ok for me to go live as it was getting more and more negative in the comments,” he shared with his TikTok followers.
“I probably live-streamed for about two to three hours and in those two to three hours, I was getting more and more drunk. So after I kept seeing how negative the comments were and seeing whatever people were saying to me, when they don’t know about anything ever, it was getting me more and more irritated and then the alcohol – so I became more careless.”
“I said stuff that should have never been said. My natural instinct when I see people saying that stuff … that’s how I decided to handle it.”
Millie’s team has insisted Hunter’s comments were “dishonest, irresponsible, offensive and hateful”.
Her spokesperson said in a statement: “Mr. Ecimovic’s remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful.
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 behaviour once and for all.”
