Millie Bobby Brown is one of the most promising young actresses of the moment, after reaping successes such as Stranger Things Y Enola Holmes. But now she is surrounded by a scandal that once again puts the sexualization and exposure of actors in the spotlight from such an early age.
The 17-year-old young actress and Hunter Ecimovi, a 21-year-old model famous for his TikTok account, had a brief relationship when she was 16 and he was 20. Although the courtship went unnoticed at the time, the tiktoker known as Echo revealed intimate situations with Milly Bobby Brown , who denounced him in court.
Millie Bobby Brown’s complaint
The influencer unleashed controversy on social networks when he told details about his courtship with the young actress in a live Instagram. In addition, he revealed how his sexual encounters were in a mocking tone and exaggerating situations, while his followers laughed.
For violating his rights and privacy, Millie Bobby Brown decided to criminally denounce him. “Mr. Ecimovic’s comments on social media are not only dishonest, but also irresponsible, offensive and loaded with hatred,” his team said in a statement.
He added: “Instead of engaging in a public discussion with him through the press or on social media, we are taking steps to ensure that this behavior ceases once and for all.”
It should be remembered that Millie Bobby Brown is one of the actresses of the new generation raising the flag of feminism, gender equality and empowerment. Far from being silent, the actress will have a new opportunity to show all young women that no man should violate their rights.
Because of the controversy, Echo had to deactivate his Instagram account and at the moment he did not publicly respond to the statement of Millie Bobby Brown. The little that is known is that in the live video of Instagram, he said that they lived 8 months together in the actress’s house and that their parents had knowledge.
This put youth sexualization and abuse within the industry back on the agenda. California state law indicates that the minimum age for consent to sexual intercourse is 18 and the actress was still younger. “I will never apologize, I hope they know. I have nothing to apologize for, that is clear. I have nothing to apologize for,” Echo said.
How should this case be resolved?
