Echosmith's Graham Sierota's Family Reveals He is Autistic, Apologizes for Alabama Barker Incident

The family of Echosmith drummer Graham Sierota is sharing some personal information amid his controversy with Travis Barker‘s daughter Alabama.

The 20-year-old musician was called out for sending Instagram direct messages to the 13-year-old but has since apologized and explained that he did not know Alabama‘s age.

Now Graham‘s family is revealing that he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder as a child and “has difficulty understanding social cues.”

“We have never publicly addressed this in the past, but given the events of the last few days, we feel compelled to speak out now to offer some additional context and insight into the unfortunate misunderstandings that occurred and clear up the deeply hurtful mischaracterizations of Graham,” the Sierota family said in a statement to Just Jared.

They continued, “Graham’s challenges have always been a non-issue in our family. In fact, it is a truly beautiful and wonderful thing that makes Graham the amazing brother, son and friend that he is. His outlook on life inspires us every day…We understand that his interactions were misinterpreted and misunderstood in the confusing world of social media, and we are deeply sorry. Graham certainly never meant to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”

“As a family, we will continue to work with him to have the right tools and knowledge about social boundaries, and to better navigate and utilize social media while he takes a break from it. We hope anyone who’s been affected, and in turn felt uncomfortable, can accept our deepest apologies,” they concluded.

Travis Barker Calls Out Echosmith Drummer for Alleged Inappropriate Messages Sent to His 13-Year-Old Daughter

Travis Barker is putting Graham Sierota on blast.

The 43-year-old Blink-182 star called out the 20-year-old Echosmith drummer for inappropriately messaging his 13-year-old daughter, Alabama.

“When I found out a 20 year old man was trying to get in touch with my 13 year old daughter by filling her Instagram messages with party invites and compliments I was disgusted. That’s predatory behaviour and there is nothing cool, normal or ok about it at all,” he told The Blast on Wednesday (July 31).

He first reportedly reached out to Alabama in 2016 when he was 17 and she was 10 years old, and said “By the way I’m Graham from echosmith and I think ur beautiful.” He says he did not know her age at the time.

After Graham sent her an invite to a BBQ party at his house earlier this month, Alabama then shared the exchange on her social media. At that point, he claims, he realized her age.

Graham has since responded to the allegations with a statement provided to Just Jared: “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.”
