Christian Walker, the son of former football star and Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, is being criticized after he body-shamed reproductive rights activists.
Walker's remarks came as the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.
Walker claimed that pro-choice women who've called for a nationwide "sex-strike" in response to Roe v. Wade's likely reversal "look like they need to go on a strike from Burger King."
He went even further a little while later after, posting a video in which he stated that if any hypothetical woman is going to go on a sex-strike, then "were you getting any to begin with, ma’am?"
You can hear what he said in the video below.
“If you’re gonna get an abortion, you do have to get banged, so all of the blue-haired pro-choice protesters don’t need to worry much about abortions. I’m sorry, I just had to say that."
“It’s easy to give something up when you don’t have it. It’s easy to give up shopping when you’re broke, like we all are under Joe Biden."
“So for everyone saying they’re going on a sex strike, were you getting any to begin with, ma’am? Cuz it doesn’t look like it."
“It looks like you’ve been in the drive-thru. Not in the drive up to his house category, more in the ‘I’ll take a ten-piece fried chicken. That's where it looks like you've been."
Walker, a former competitive cheerleader who has praised former President Donald Trump in prior social media posts and has objected to being called "gay"–preferring instead to refer to himself as “a conservative who likes men”–was harshly criticized.
Many have condemned him for what has been widely perceived as overtly misogynistic rhetoric.
Walker's attacks denigrating reproductive rights activists' appearances brings to mind a similar one in the last week, this one from Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz.
Gaetz was heavily criticized after he referred to pro-choice activists as "over-educated, under-loved millennials" and suggested they're only angry about a rightward shift in reproductive rights because they can't get matches on dating apps.
Writing on Twitter, he said women protesting the fall of Roe will likely "sadly return from protests to a lonely microwave dinner with their cats" and "no matches" on Bumble, a popular online dating application.
