Hunter Echo Apologizes for Millie Bobby Brown Comments, Blames Alcohol

TikTok star Hunter "Echo" Ecimovic has apologized for crude comments he made about Millie Bobby Brown, amid allegations he once dated the actress.

Ecimovic, 21, sparked outrage on Monday, when he spoke about the 17-year-old Stranger Things star during an Instagram Live session, and alluded to having had sexual encounters with her in the past.

And in a new video shared on his TikTok account late Tuesday night, Ecimovic apologized for his behavior, explaining that was "getting more and more drunk" as he made the comments while spending time with a small group of friends.

Sporting a grey hoodie, he said: "I wanted to address the livestream incident that happened. It should have never happened in the first place. That was a stupid idea on my part to think it was gonna be OK to just continue to go live as it was getting more and more negative in the comments.

"I put up a livestream for about two to three hours, and in those two to three hours I was getting more and more drunk. After I kept seeing how negative the comments were and hearing or seeing whatever people were saying to me—when they don't know about anything—it was getting me more and more irritated."

Ecimovic went on to say that the alcohol made him "more careless, and I said stuff that should have never been said. But my natural instinct when I see people doing that kind of stuff, or when I see what people are saying, I'm like, OK, let's make it way worse and let's antagonize, which is so stupid. But that's how I decided to handle it."

On Monday and Tuesday, several posts were added to an Instagram account called @exposinghunterecho, showing Ecimovic and Brown embracing in photos and comments from unidentified people speaking out against the TikTok star. The account has since been disabled.

After hitting out at unspecified "fabricated" claims, Ecimovic said in his latest TikTok video: "The livestream, I am sorry for. I'm not proud at all of how I spoke. It sounded very immature, it looked horrible. It looked horrible on my family, it looked horrible on me, it looked horrible on my friends.

"I am sorry for doing that live stream, 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 OK with what I said. I'm not trying to justify it at all. I just want you guys to know that I'm not OK with how I went about stuff."

After making his comments about Brown during the Instagram Live session in question, Ecimovic said: "I have nothing to apologize for, so make that clear. I have zero things to apologize for. You guys do not know a single thing at all."

He also claimed that Brown's parents approved of their alleged relationship, saying: "I was living at Millie's house for eight months. How the f*** is that a lawsuit? I thought her mom and dad knew about everything."

Brown's representatives spoke out against Ecimovic's claims, branding them "dishonest" and "offensive" as they announced plans to "take action."

"Mr. Ecimovic's remarks on social media are not only dishonest, but also are irresponsible, offensive and hateful," read a statement shared with E! News. "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."
