Which the 27-year-old singer gave her thoughts on the situation in a since-deleted TikTok video.
“Everyone’s entitled to an opinion — you’re so rude, or you wouldn’t be telling barista workers that I’m an assh—,” Walker, son of former NFL player and current Georgia Senate hopeful Herschel Walkershouts toward Kehlani before walking toward their car in the initial clipwhich was posted on Wednesday.
“Get your drink and go away. I can have an opinion like everybody else. Why are you entitled to an opinion and not me… You’re the a–hole. Get your drink and go.”
The influencer posted the video on Twitter, where it was viewed over 2 million views, alongside the caption, “This mediocre singer that everyone’s forgotten about, Kehlani, told my baristas at Starbucks that I was an ‘a**hole’ and to be ‘safe around me.’ Well, I set her straight.”

On Wednesday in a clip posted to Walker’s Instagram Story just prior to him sharing the interaction with Kehlani, he yells about “these flags from hell” while filming the Pride flags and mentions that “Pride Month ended 13 days ago.” He emotionally says in a follow-up video, “I’m going to ask them if they need me to frickin’ deliver an American flag.”
“He proceeds to get to the little order-box thing, and is clearly harassing whoever’s behind the order-box,” Kehlani continued on TikTok. “I felt like, ‘Oh, this man is about to come up to the window and harass all of these workers.'”
They noted that many of the Starbucks baristas were people of color and “seemed queer to me” and said they proceeded to warn the staff of “that Republican Trump supporter kid” before he approached the drive-thru window. “They were like, ‘Yeah, I know that kid.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, he’s af—king assh—,’ because I’ve just watched him be an assh— for the last 10 minutes,” detailed Kehlani.
The alleged singer-songwriter Walker repeatedly called them a “b****” before filming the viral video, during which Kehlani said they were in the middle of a virtual therapy session and “coincidentally talking about people misplacing anger when they’re mad at something else.”
“I know what you want to do,” they said of Walker. “You wanna get a reaction out of me so that you can go viral and then you can post this as some kind of take on people with my political stance, or political stance, and people from my community, people like me. Lo and behold!”
After the clip went viral, Kehlani jumped on Twitter to defend his actions. “Leftists are coming at me right now because most of the people they’re used to bullying, I stand up for myself,” Walker wrote. “Start standing up to these miserable blue-haired people.”

He proceeded to post an Instagram video wearing a “Pro-America” t-shirt and talking about the interaction with Kehlani and said, “Leftists think they can be rude and nasty to anyone who has a different viewpoint than them, and they think their rude and nastiness is actually good. They think it’s a good deed, because anyone who disagrees with them is a bad person.”
“Baby, we were getting a coffee in the drive-thru, and you were so triggered by my presence that you had to talk on me to the barista,” continued Walker, who also wrote in the post’s caption, “Apparently, she was worried about the ‘safety’ of the baristas being around such a person like me (a conservative).”
“She really demonstrated how great of a person SHE is by calling me names and pointing before I rolled my window down,” he added. “Isn’t it always interesting that the ‘tolerant, loving, and inclusive’ people always are the furthest thing from any of those traits?”
