Clay Walker Recorded Berating His Tour Bus Driver

WARNING: Language

Country star Clay Walker has issued a statement through his publicist after audio surfaced of him heavily berating a bus driver. On Monday (3-6), Tik-Tok user “_i.am.brooke_” posted a minute-long video containing audio allegedly of Clay Walker heavily cussing his bus driver for being late and not cleaning the bus properly.

“I’m coming over here and I’m going to tell you something. I can whip your ass with one hand tied behind my back. Don’t say a fu**ing word,” Walker can be heard saying. “Tomorrow call your fu**ing boss and get me an experienced fu**ing driver out here because you are not that. And I’ve been trying to raise you up last night and you’re telling me I’m eating into your fu**ing drive time motherfu**er. You told me you’d be here at 10 fu**ing pm, you were not here you lying, c**t.”

Walker goes on to say, “So when I come out of that bathroom, get your ass ready to drive, and drive me smooth motherfu**er, or you’re going to regret it. All my shit is still fu**ing dirty back here. You know what? If you really wanted to fu**ing try and be part of this organization, you’d have found a fu**ing washing machine. You told him you cleaned this bus till 4…”

@_i.am.brooke_ TIKTOK THIS IS NOT ME BULLYING.

Saving Country Music was not able to independently verify the audio, or the name of the bus driver. But after the audio was released and shared, Clay Walker responded through his publicist, saying “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.” 

Clay Walker had not addressed the issue on on social media at the time of this post. Ironically, Walker has been experiencing a resurgence of interest by actively using the Tik-Tok app to connect with his fans. Actively promoting himself through the platform and promoting his fans to follow him on Tik-Tok in concert, it has been a major part of his marketing strategy.

A big star in the ’90s when he notched six #1’s, Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1996, which slowed his career. However, he continues to tour and record, and operates his own non-profit charity, Band Against MS.
