The drummer from Echosmith is apologizing after Travis Barker called him out for "predatory" behavior for contacting his 13-year-old daughter on Instagram.

Graham Sierota issued a statement to The Blast, explaining the situation and making it clear he made a mistake.

"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," Graham tells us.

He adds, "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."

As we reported, the Blink-182 drummer thought it was "disgusting" and "predatory" after the 20-year-old musician invited 13-year-old Alabama Barker to his party.

Alabama also thought it was inappropriate, and not only told Graham she was a minor, but put him on blast by posting their DM conversation. "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," she wrote.

Graham has since made his Instagram page private.
