Millie Bobbie Brown Slams TikTocker Hunter Echo's Grooming Claims, Is 'Taking Action'
Millie Bobbie Brown is "taking action" against Hunter Ecimovic after he claimed he groomed her and then engaged in sexual acts with her.
Millie Bobby Brown is apparently “taking action” against Hunter “Echo” Ecimovic after the TikToker claimed during a livestream that he engaged in sexual acts with the teen actor.
On Monday, Ecimovic, 21, bragged in an Instagram Live that he groomed Brown, 17, for sexual acts as he went into lewd details about the alleged incidents.
"Mr. Ecimovic's remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful," representatives for Brown told E! Online. "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."
Ecimovic has since deactivated his Instagram. But before doing so, he referred to himself as someone who "groomed" the “Stranger Things” star. He said he lived with Brown in her home for eight months and gave graphic details of alleged sexual acts between them. The age of consent in California is 18. Ecimovic reportedly lives in Los Angeles where the teen star also reportedly lives part of the year. The state also does not have a Romeo and Juliet law that prevents prosecution when both parties are close in age.
“We have not heard of anything about this,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told Oxygen.com on Thursday, adding that they were "not aware" about the claims made by Ecimovic.
Photos of Brown and Ecimovic looking friendly, apparently taken in 2020 when she was 16 and he was 20, made the rounds on social media as the TikToker made his claims.
“Her mom and dad knew about everything,” Ecimovic claimed on Monday. He also stated that “everything that I did was completely legal and it was approved by everybody that I was with,” according to Page Six.
By Tuesday, he said, “I said stuff that should have never been said.”
