Musician Graham Sierota from the band, Echosmith, says he made a “careless mistake” after sending messages to Travis Baker’s 13-year-old daughter.
The 20-year-old was exposed by Travis’ daughter, Alabama, after she revealed messages that date back to 2016 when she was 10-years-old, with one saying, “By the way I’m Graham from Echosmith and I think ur beautiful,”
Graham allegedly went on to invite her to a BBQ mid-July of this year, to which she responded saying “Ur like 40.” — with the Echosmith drummer saying, “I just wanted to say i really like ur music and sorry for messaging and I’m 20.”
Alabama published the screenshots of conversations between the pair, which shows Graham messaging her first and only responding a handful of times, all of which are shutting down any conversation Graham is trying to make happen — in the seemingly final response to messages sent from the musician, Alabama replied, “Ok but u understand I’m a child?”
The screenshots were published on Alabama’s Instagram Stories with the caption, “Hey guys! So once again I am bringing this to your attention because I’m a 13-year-old girl and he is 21/20 super creepy.”
Graham later responded publicly, saying, “I had invited Alabama to my parents’ big family BBQ along with many other people, and it wasn’t until she responded that I realized her age at which point I apologized to her.
I’m really sorry and feel very badly about this. I didn’t realize she was a minor and assumed she was my age. I made a careless mistake and this is a big lesson for me. I would like to apologize again to Alabama, her dad Travis, and her family.”
