Representatives for Stranger Things star TikToker Hunter Ecimovic have stated that they intend to take legal action after an explicit livestream in the which Ecimovic mentioned a relationship to actor Millie Bobby Brown.
According to Insider, Ecimovic spoke out about an alleged sexual relationship that he claimed he had when Brown was 16, and now he’s 20. After photos of Ecimovic and Brown kissing were leaked online, the video was made shortly afterwards.
Over the course of the livestream, Ecimovic said he “groomed” Brown, after commenters accused him of doing so. He also said he “was living in Millie’s house for eight months.” After sharing explicit sexual details, Ecimovic added “Everything I did was completely legal,” he said on the livestream. Complex reports that Ecimovic is 18 years old and lives in California.
Ecimovic said, “I will never apologize- I hope you know that.” Ecimovic also stated that he has nothing to apologize for. “I have nothing to apologize for.”
Ecimovic’s Instagram and TikTok accounts have been removed.
In a statement to Teen Vogue Brown’s representatives called Ecimovics claims “dishonest and offensive” and stated that they would take action against him.
“Mr. Representatives stated that Ecimovic’s comments on social media were not only dishonest, but also irresponsible and offensive. We are not going to engage in public discourse with Ecimovic via the media or social media. Instead, we will take action to ensure that he ceases this behavior for good.
Representatives declined to comment on whether or not the couple were in a relationship.
Since the live stream initially happened, Ecimovic has apologized for his words in a now-unavailable TikTok video, saying it “should have never happened in the first place.” The apology was recorded and published on YouTube. He said, “The livestream is something I am sorry for.” “I am not proud of how I spoke. It sounded very immature and looked terrible on my family, on me, and on my friends.
He continued, “There are already stories which are completely false or never told.” It’s all being invented.”
