AceShowbiz - Herschel Walker's son is rubbing salt into his father's wound following his loss in the Georgia Senate runoff election. Christian Walker has publicly slammed the former NFL star, whose campaign was plagued with controversy from the beginning.
Christian spoke against his father on Twitter on Tuesday, December 6, shortly after the result of the election was announced. Seemingly defending Democrat's Raphael Warnock who managed to keep his Georgia Senate seat, he wrote, "Don't compare Warnock running over his wife's foot to my father holding guns and knives to my mothers throat, threatening to kill his therapist, her, and one of his adultresses in a therapy session, and telling my mom and I he was going to beat our asses. Get off my page."
Christian said, "Don't beat women, hold guns to peoples heads, fund abortions then pretend your pro-life, stalk cheerleaders, leave your multiple minor children alone to chase more fame, lie, lie, lie, say stupid crap, and make a fool of your family.. And then maybe you can win a senate seat."
Blaming Republicans for nominating Herschel, he added in a separate tweet, "Republicans, we say we don't play 'identity politics' and then you ran this man mainly because he was the same skin color as his opponent with no background other than football. A boring old Republican could have won."
Christian also spoke of Donald Trump's support for his father, "The Truth: Trump called my dad for months DEMANDING that he run. Everyone with a brain begged him: 'PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. This is too dirty, you have an insane past… PLEASE DONT DO THIS.' We got the middle finger. He ran."
Christian clearly fumed that his father allegedly abandoned two of his children as he tweeted, "I was called a backstabber after getting angry and blowing up from watching my dad lie for 18 months straight… But he's not a backstabber for leaving his 2 minor children he kept secret to grow up without a dad as he chases more fame and power?"
When someone blamed Christian's "embittered" mom for his rant against his father, Christian clapped back, "You came for every single mother who raised their child while dealing with abuse. My mom protected me, loved me, and cared for me. My opinions of my father are from MY experiences, not hers." He added, "I messaged you privately and respectfully, and you didn't delete this. How dare you."
Christian went on defending his mother, "This is my amazing mom who's had her name and image dragged through the media unwillingly. She refused to talk to any journalist after 18 months of stalking. I blew up after she was lied on multiple times. Shoutout to every strong mother whose story goes untold. We love you."
"She wanted no part of this," Christian, who described himself as a "free-speech radicalist," added, "Any interview clipped of her was from a 2008 interview she did that my dad wanted her to do. She married my amazing stepdad and lives a quiet life. I'm so happy she can rest now, and this bull crap is over with."
Herschel shares Christian with his ex-wife Cindy DeAngelis Grossman, who was his college sweetheart. Following the couple's divorce in 2002, he married Julie Blanchard in 2021 after she said in 2012 that they were engaged.
It wasn't until his Senate campaign that Herschel acknowledged he has two additional sons and a daughter. He said in June that he "never denied" having four children, but admitted that he did not publicly acknowledge his children to prevent exposing them to unwanted attention.
Christian's Twitter rant arrives after Warnock won the race to keep his Georgia Senate seat. The incumbent Senate, a pastor who rose to prominence at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s former church, made history in 2021 as the first black senator to be elected from Georgia when he defeated Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
