Former Georgia football star and NFL running back Herschel Walker has responded to the comments made about him on MSNBC.
Walker, who is running for a seat in the U.S. Senate out of Georgia, responded to being called a "negro" by an MSNBC analyst.
"My response to MSNBC and the man who called me the N word. @ReverendWarnock and the left wing crazies believe America is a fundamentally bad country full of racist people. But you and I know this is a great country, full of good people," he wrote.
Walker, whose campaign has been heavily criticized by the left, is trending on social media.
His opponent is calling him out for a debate.
Recent poll results, meanwhile, have shown Walker is trailing.
