Self-proclaimed “free-speech radicalist” and MAGA troll Christian Walker appears to have broken his silence after his father, anti-LGBTQ senatorial candidate and champion of conservative family values Herschel Walker, was exposed for having not one, not two, but three children hidden from the public eye, all born out of wedlock to different women.
“Raise your damn kids 2022,” the 22-year-old former competitive cheerleader tweeted yesterday, which also happened to be Father’s Day.
Raise your damn kids 2022.
— Christian Walker (@ChristianWalk1r) June 19, 2022
Though it’s not totally clear, many interpreted Walker’s tweet as a direct response to those bombshell reports about his dad that boke last week.
Herschel Walker has frequently criticized “the fatherless home” specifically within the Black community on the campaign trail and peddled homophobic rhetoric about how every child needs both a mother and a father in the home and blah, blah, blah.
Christian Walker, too, has been a vocal critic of men who don’t play an active role in their children’s lives. Most recently, he blasted Nick Cannon for fathering eight children with four different women, saying he represents “everything wrong with our culture.”
Nick Cannon is everything wrong with our culture. Knocking women up and then being too busy banging other women to take care of his children.
Fathers, control your ding-a-ling, get home, and raise your damn kids.

Needless to say, things in this family have gotten very awkward very fast.
In response to last week’s reports, Herschel Walker issued a statement today saying he has “never denied” the existence of his four children. He just didn’t mention three of them until now.
Here’s how people responded to Christian’s Father’s Day tweet…
I think he’s talking about you, @HerschelWalker.

This doesn’t seem like the best way to communicate with him.
