Gay influencer Christian Walker had four choice words for his father – former NFL player and Republican Herschel Walker who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia – as news of his latest scandal broke.

Earlier this week, a woman spoke to The Daily Beast and said that Herschel Walker – who is opposed to abortion – paid for her to get an abortion. She even produced a “get well” card she said was signed by Herschel Walker, the $575 receipt for the abortion, and a bank deposit receipt for a check for $700 that Herschel Walker allegedly sent her.

Herschel Walker claimed he did not even know the woman. But on Wednesday, The Daily Beast published another bombshell report saying that Herschel Walker and the unnamed woman had another child together and that he has acknowledged that child.

Christian Walker – the adult, conservative son of Herschel who was in his dad’s corner until recently – had only four words for his dad: “Wear a condom, damn.”

Christian Walker has made a name for himself on TikTok for his angry videos where he yells into the camera, mostly about deadbeat dads and his antipathy for liberals. He has claimed that he likes men but that he’s not gay because he likes masculine men. “LGBTQ is nothing more than a Marxist cult,” he said in a video this past June.

“Pride Month is starting so I’d like to announce to everyone that I’m NOT gay,” he wrote on Twitter in May. “I’m attracted to men but I refuse to identify with the rainbow cult. I don’t believe in indoctrinating children. My whole identity isn’t my sexuality. And I don’t go to gay bars. Don’t call me gay.”

In June, journalists found out about other children fathered by Herschel Walker with different women. But news earlier this week about Herschel Walker paying for an abortion turned Christian Walker against him, with the son going public with accusations of abuse against his father.

Christian Walker said that his father “threatened to kill” him and his mother and that they had to move six times to get away from Herschel Walker.

“You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other peoples lives,” Christian Walker tweeted. “How dare you.”

Herschel Walker denied the accusation that he payed for an abortion, calling it “the latest Democrat attack” and “a flat-out lie.” He went on Fox News on Wednesday morning and said that he doesn’t even know who the woman is.

“Not at all,” Herschel Walker said. “And that’s what I hope everyone can see. It’s sort of like everyone is anonymous, or everyone is leaking, and they want you to confess to something you have no clue about.”

The woman whose abortion Herschel Walker allegedly paid for said that she’s not surprised that he’s denying what happened.

“Sure, I was stunned, but I guess it also doesn’t shock me, that maybe there are just so many of us that he truly doesn’t remember,” she told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. “But then again, if he really forgot about it, that says something, too.”

She said that her relationship with Herschel Walker continued for years after the abortion and that she got pregnant by him again a few years later. She decided against terminating the second pregnancy even though Herschel Walker told her it wasn’t “a convenient time” for him to become a father again.

Now she has a child who was fathered by Herschel Walker. The Daily Beast notes that Herschel Walker has “publicly acknowledged the child as his own, and the woman proved she is the child’s mother and provided credible evidence of a long-term relationship with Walker.”

The woman said that, while Herschel Walker often talks about his Christianity, he never said he had any regrets about their abortion or about abortion in general.

“He didn’t express any regret. He said, ‘Relax and recover’” after the abortion, she said. “He seemed pretty pro-choice to me. He was pro-choice, obviously.”

Herschel Walker’s campaign has not commented on the latest report, but they did release a new ad saying that God cured his mental illness.

The ad shows excerpts from a 2008 CNN interview with Herschel Walker’s ex-wife Cynthia Grossman – Christian Walker’s mother – where she accused her ex-husband of physically abusing her and threatening to kill her. The words “He choked me. I think I passed out” can be seen as Herschel Walker talks about his “redemptive story.”

Herschel Walker’s campaign has raised over $500,000 since the abortion story broke as Republicans rallied to support him. He went to the First Baptist Church in Atlanta for a closed prayer event where he reportedly asked for prayers for his wife and “all my family that we continue to have the armor of God on and just to fight.”

Herschel Walker will face the incumbent Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the general election this November.
