In an Instagram post on Thursday, Walker revealed that he was sexually abused when he was young.
“The real truth about why I started doing this in the early 5th grade was a hiding place for me,” Walker said.
“During the summer of my 5th year, I was surrounded by more families. Some of these names will be left alone, I was about more. I was sexually harassed, raped, abused, I’m used to it even because I’m at that age to know what it is, “Walker wrote.
He said he “had a mentality that my hair was something I could control. My hair was what I could make and create and become my own. And it gave me confidence.”
Walker went on to say that he was not at his best lately and recently began to “really look at himself in the mirror.”
“In short, I have found peace and inner happiness through this journey, God willing. I have forgiven everyone, even people who do not deserve it, why? Because it’s dead weight. Time does not wait for anyone, because why should I waste my time “on it? “
Walker said combing his hair was more than just a haircut, calling his hair a mask to hide insecurities.
“It simply came to our notice then. Inside the new. I have thrown my skin mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually “, he wrote. “Life will always be difficult. You have to play with the cards you shared and try to win a hand. And if you lose. It’s never (a loss). It’s a lesson.”
