Filming the selfie video from her bed, the blonde teenager began: “I just wanted to come on here and say one thing. Yes I had my birthday party early because my real birthday is December 24th and no one’s available that day.
“Just because I was holding something in a video doesn’t mean I was drinking it.
“Just because LA music was playing doesn’t mean I think I’m from LA.
“That’s like me listening to country music and saying I’m a country girl, like it just doesn’t work,” she continued.

“When something positive happens in my life I gain the most haters.
This woman right here made this TikTok about me and that’s her opinion and she stated it,” she said as she shared a screenshot of the video.
“I just don’t understand, if you’re gonna talk bad about me, why follow me? Doesn’t that just make you one of people that feed into it if you don’t like me?
“Like why follow me if you dislike me and make TikToks about me, in general, this goes out to everybody.

“Some of my biggest haters on my page follow me so I always follow back,” she added.
“I know what I am and who I am and I don’t need people to tell me. It’s sad, people really waste their time hating,” Alabama ended the video.
Despite the fact that Alabama deleted the video, one fan grabbed it and shared it on Reddit and others quickly commented on the thread.
“Just because I was holding it doesn’t mean I was drinking it… come on now sis,” one person mocked.
Another said: “Was that really the best excuse she could come up with lol. My mom would’ve been mad at me for just holding it.”
A third person claimed: “Hahah there’s a video where you can see her clearly turning around to drink so.”
And a fourth Reddit user added: “she’ll look back and cringe real hard in a few years…”
Someone else commented: “Spoken like a true teenager,” while another said: “I don’t want her to respond, I want her PARENTS to respond.”
Blink 182 drummer Travis and his wife Kourtney were slammed over the weekend for allowing Alabama, who is still 16, to hold, and possibly drink, alcohol during the wild party.
In a video shared on TikTok, the underage teen was holding a bottle of some sort of liquid that many believe was alcohol, while dancing to a rapper.
At one point, Alabama turned away from the camera, and looked to be taking a swig from the bottle, before handing it off.
“Why the hell is that child holding a bottle?” one shocked fan asked. “Like this is bordering, if not crossing into, child endangerment territory.”
Another shared: “This makes me really so scared for her. How are the adults in her life not keeping her safe at all?”
While one person expressed their anger: “My hatred is being directed to her parents and adults in her life. You’ve all failed her.”

And one wondered if there were failures all around: “I’m baffled a minor can so publicly have alcohol like this. Most establishments risk being shut down for knowingly serving minors and here it’s on display for all to see?
“This is outside the obvious parenting fails. I don’t blame Alabama for this, it’s all the adults in her life failing her for years. How sad.”
