So, in a long string of very strange Youtube videos, deleted Instagram posts and Twitter feuds, it looks like RiceGum won’t be receiving any VIP tickets to future Blink 182 gig’s after calling out their drummer’s daughter to his 2 million subscribers. In a video that has since been deleted by a rightfully furious Travis Barker, we can reveal that RiceGum hunted down his daughter’s Instagram profile and absolutely roasted the hell out of her “sexy” and “unbelievable looks” and lifestyle… oh by the way, she’s 10-years-old.
About 10 million things have happened in this story, so we’ll obviously start from the beginning with RiceGum’s original video blasting the young girl for not “acting her age” on the Internet. The girl in question, Alabama Barker, has her Instagram photos posted and commentated on throughout RiceGum’s video as he singles her out as a “child that needs to be stopped” after making amends with Jacob Sartorius and removing him from his popular YouTube series.
After the video went live and RiceGum fans went to find Alabama’s profile to further the attack, Travis reacted so strongly that we’re honestly in awe of his power. Firstly, he shared an image of RiceGum on his Instagram saying that “this lame is about to take the biggest f*ckin L in history”, but it was promptly deleted and his profile privatised before things could get any worse. This all happened just before he had RiceGum’s original video taken down from YouTube and setting his ex-wife on the Twitter assault to really let RiceGum know that he was in the wrong.
In a string of six messages to the YouTuber, Alabama’s mother, Shanna Moakler, directly @’d RiceGum in one of the most furious callouts we’ve ever seen; “Wow you just roasted my 10 year old daughter on your pathetic channel. You have NOTHING better to do than tear down a kid? My kids don’t have what U would consider a “normal” upbringing, you should be fckn ashamed of yourself U judgmental asshole. U now have a devastated 10 YEAR OLD! Who is being verbally attacked, there aren’t enough assholes in Hollywood for you to shit on? Your gonna get treated like a fckn adults too. Thanks for hurting a kid and for sending ur ignorant fans to do more damage”.
In response, RiceGum clearly doesn’t give a damn about his behaviour saying he’ll just move “on to the next” one.
But what do YOU think about the whole situation? In defence of RiceGum, his video pointed out that not only were Alabama’s selfies and lifestyle totally “inappropriate” for a 10-year-old, but that Instagram’s Terms Of Service dictate that users MUST be over 13 years of age to use their network, therefore she was literally too young to have her own profile. However, in defence of Travis Barker, a random YouTuber just verbally analysed his young daughter on the Internet for entertainment which is 100% not on, especially when they make reference to their sexualised interpretation of her images.
