Spurs Guard Lonnie Walker IV speaks out about childhood sexual abuse

Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV cut off a large portion of his signature hairstyle on Thursday, a decision that was more than cosmetic. Walker revealed that his hair had previously been a “cloaking device” after he was sexually abused as a child. 

“During the summer of my 5th grade year I was around more family,” Walker wrote on Instagram. “I was sexually harassed, raped, abused. I even got accustomed to it because being at that age, you don’t know what is what. I was a gullible, curious kid that didn’t know what the real world was. I had a mindset that my hair was something that I can control. My hair was what I can make and create and be mine. And it gave [me] confidence.”
