Ex-NFL star Herschel Walker’s son, Christian, went on a social media rant disowning his father after bombshell reports his father paid for a girlfriend’s abortion went viral.
Despite being exposed for his multitude of hypocrisy and lies, the GA Republican candidate for United States Senate doubled and tripled down on his nonsense with his oldest child’s whole—and deranged—support.
Until now anyway.
Taking to the internet to say he was “done” with his dad in an unhinged Twitter rant on Monday evening, the confused 23-year-old self-professed conservative activist, who, like his dad, couldn’t tell the truth if it was spoon-fed to him, spilled all the Walker family tea, tweeting:
Every family member of Herschel Walker asked him not to run for office because we all knew (some of) his past. Every single one. He decided to give us the middle finger and air out all of his dirty laundry in public, while simultaneously lying about it.
This is a complete about-face from the comments Christian made just over a year prior after the former University of Georgia quarterback announced his bid for political office, saying, “I’m so proud that he’s chosen to step up to the plate and do this for our great country.”
“You left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move.”
But the internet is forever, which was quickly pointed out as Twitter users old enough to remember the young conservative’s very public, and previously unwavering, support, co-host of the popular left-leaning political show, The Tony Michaels Podcast, Gabe Sanchez, reminded the public:

But Christian Walker, who claims he moved to Florida because of Ron DeSantis’s fascistic brand of freedom and is now crying over the move, saying he missed LA, was just getting started.
An hour later, he continued his meltdown by putting more of his family’s business on the proverbial streets. Accusing his dad of “making a mockery,” of him and his mother by continuously lying, and alleging rampant infidelity, abandoning his familial duties, and violence.
“You’re not a “family man” when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence,” Walker wrote on Twitter.
I know my mom and I would really appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us.
You’re not a “family man” when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence.

The rant continued with the emotional millennial saying, “I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability. But how DARE YOU LIE and act as though you’re some “moral, Christian, upright man.” You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other people’s lives. How dare you.”
On Monday, The Daily Beast came with receipts when reporting that the hypocritical Herschel Walker – who has publicly, and vocally, sided with the extreme GOP’s anti-abortion platform – paid for a girlfriend’s abortion in 2009. According to TDB:
Herschel Walker, the football legend now running for Senate in Georgia, says he wants to completely ban abortion, likening it to murder and claiming there should be “no exception” for rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
The ex-girlfriend, who asked to remain anonymous, claims she got the reproductive healthcare procedure at the urging of her then-boyfriend, Herschel Walker.
The woman provided a receipt for the $575 surgery, a get-well card from the Heisman Trophy winner, and a scanned image of a $700 check from a bank deposit made out to the woman who said she came forward because of her ex–boyfriend’s lies and hard-core anti-abortion stance—with no exceptions for rape, incest, or the mother’s life.

The Trump-endorsed U.S. Candidate responded to his estranged son’s condemnation with a simple – and what many, according to the replies, consider a less-than-sincere message, nearly two hours after Christian’s highly charged rant began, Walker tweeted, “I love my son no matter what.”
I LOVE my son no matter what

The younger, outraged Christian doubled down on Tuesday morning, tweeting a video saying he is DONE with the lies.
I’ve stayed silent for nearly two years as my whole life has been lied about publicly. I did ONE campaign event, then said I didn’t want involvement.
Don’t you dare test my authenticity. Here is the full story: pic.twitter.com/ekVEcz8zq3

Kids, gotta love them—but it’s probably best to do so in person and not in a tweet.
Christian Walker is known for letting his emotions all hang out on social media platforms. I have a feeling he’s just getting started.
Meanwhile, some say this is the end of his dad’s political ambitions, but as the GOP has proven time and time again, the so-called party of family values tends to look the other way when it comes to those values.
