Kehlani’s unbothered look at the Starbucks drive-thru instantly went viral after Christian Walker, a conservative social media influencer and son of Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker, filmed the R&B star after she allegedly called him an “a–hole” and told the Starbucks barista to “be safe around him.”
The video clip shows Walker approaching Kehlani’s vehicle yelling, “Everyone’s entitled to an opinion — you’re so rude, or you wouldn’t be telling barista workers that I’m an a–hole,” he shouted. “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.”
Walker went on to call the “Alter” artist a “mediocre singer that everyone’s forgotten about” in his tweet, adding that he’s “tired of these fake woke people being rude to everyone and acting like they’re the good ones.”
Kehlani, who happened to be on a virtual therapy session at the time, responded to the incident saying she was trying to warn the Starbucks employees due to Walker’s alleged past of “harassing [this] community” referring to the queer community.
Fans went on to defend Kehlani by calling her “unbothered” by the influencer’s interaction. Take a look at how fans reacted to the incident:
