Clay Walker, a prominent figure in the country music industry, reportedly issued a statement on Tuesday in response to a leak of a profanity-laced rant directed at a bus driver that had been posted on TikTok.
In the statement, Clay Walker claimed that he and the bus driver had since reconciled over an incident that had occurred ‘over a year ago.’
“This happened over a year ago and it came at the end of a long, tough weekend. The bus driver and I reconciled immediately and we are friends and stay in touch.” Walker said in a statement.
“I’m coming over here and I’m going to tell you something. I can whip your a** with one hand tied behind my back. Don’t say a f***ing word.” Walker can be heard saying on the audio.
