The thing that’s annoying to me is that TB had been in the music business for eons now, knows what’s involved, knows the kind of vultures are out there, praying on young girls in the public eye. Maybe he thinks he can protect her, but she’s in it now. For him to allow his 13 yr old daughter to be a part of it, making videos and wearing provocative clothing in public seems irresponsible and just caters to her being a sex object.

It must be difficult raising a kid when you’re living that kind of life, trying to make your kid not hate you, but he KNOWS what creeps are seeing when they look at her.

Exactly and it's not her fault who her parents are but I don't like this girl at all, she seems annoying entitled and I am not buying Gram's statement, how could he NOT know her age when he was following her on Instagram?, she doesn't look 20 so he is full of BS and trying to cover his tracks.

It was reported today that dude has Autism.

Idk if I would buy that to the point of giving him a pass. Like sure maybe he's not good with social cues, but he can still count, right?

I think both sides are in the wrong. Her parents shouldn't be letting her dress like a hooker and wear more makeup than most drag queens. It makes her look too mature for her age and with her being a public figure, it may attract unwanted attention from certain unsavory characters.

But on the flipside, with her being a public figure, this man could have easily Googled her name and seen how old she is. He technically didn't say anything sexual to her, but I have a feeling it may have escalated to that point if she had responded differently.

Meanwhile Tom Delonge is on the History Channel blabbing about aliens & UFOs with govt officials. If he only knew they were Demons he might actually get back to making his Satanic brand of music.

Isn't Tom a freemason?

(off topic: at first I was like "who is travis barker?" then it hit me "oh, blink 182". Fun times back in 2005 when there wasn't internet and I would spend my early evening watching blink 182 music videos. Good times but I don't miss them that much)

There's nothing wrong with 13-year-olds clout chasing on Instagram.

I'm kidding, of course, it's the dumbest shit about social media. However, I really think most people only use social media because they feel some obligation. That's why a lot of my posts on the internet miss the mark or aren't very good. Because I'm just posting to post something.

It's like I'm years into this obligatory feeling to post that I can't shake. So I just know I can't be the only one.

She doesn’t look 20?! Wait did you look at her Instagram? She absolutely does and she’s up in there acting like it too.
