Herschel congratulated his then-16-year-old son on winning a World Championship title in cheerleading in 2016.
“I was so thrilled about it because there was a lot of good competition there,” Herschel told TMZ after Christian won the 2016 World Championship of All-Star Cheerleading at Walt Disney World with the Spirit of Texas Royalty Co-Ed Cheer Squad, “but I’ll tell you what, they got it done!”

Christian Walker tweeted, “Had the honour of introducing my dad, @HerschelWalker, last night at Mar a Lago.” “I got to preach about how authoritarian and HORRIBLE Democrats are before hugging a future senator.” “Perfect evening.”

What did Christian Walker say about his father?
Christian tweeted Monday evening, shortly after The Daily Beast article was published, that his family urged Herschel not to run for office because details of his past could resurface. “He decided to give us the middle finger and air his dirty laundry in public while lying about it,” Christian wrote.
Christian then lamented Herschel’s absence from his life, alleging that he was violent with his mother. (Herschel has admitted to previous violent behavior toward Christian’s mother, Cindy DeAngelis Grossman, who claims Herschel held a gun to her head, among other things.) “I don’t care about someone with a bad past who accepts responsibility,” Christian wrote. “How dare you LIE and pretend to be some’moral, Christian, upright man?'”
On Tuesday morning, Christian recorded videos and shared them on social media, doubling down and accusing conservatives in general of hypocrisy for espousing family values while ignoring Herschel’s behavior. “Family values people; he has four kids from four different women and wasn’t at home raising one of them,” Christian says. “He was out with other women having sex.” Do you value family values?”
“People on the right are bringing up the fact that I did a campaign event with my father last year…
Christian continued, “I did one event last year when we were told he was going to get ahead of his past and hold himself accountable.” “None of that occurred. “Everything was a lie,” he said. “Don’t lie about your life at the expense of me, my mother, and all of the people you’ve influenced.” You don’t get to act like some moral family man.”
Walker’s popularity before the videos dropped

Walker’s first TikTok account, with 400,000 followers, was banned in 2021, according to his Twitter. Walker did start a new account, which now has over 165,000 followers.
Walker decided to become a podcaster as his popularity grew, creating a podcast called “Uncancellable” that was number one in entertainment news at one point, according to his Twitter.
