Xena: Warrior Princess actress Lucy Lawless has called out former co-star Kevin Sorbo for falsely blaming the US Capitol Hill riots on left-wing activists masquerading as Donald Trump supporters.
It all began when Sorbo — who played the titular hero on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and its spin-off Xena: Warrior Princess — shared a tweet from conservative commentator Rogan O’Handley, which read, “Do these look like Trump supporters? Or Leftist agitators disguised as Trump supporters…”
The image O’Handley shared featured some of the rioters who violently stormed the US Capitol Building yesterday to protest the victory of President-elect Joe Biden.
Sorbo — who is a firm supporter of outgoing President Trump — insinuated the same thing when he retweeted the image with the caption, “They don’t look like patriots to me…”
Lawless was quick to jump on Twitter to stop the 62-year-old from peddling conspiracy theories that the left-wing movement known as Antifa — short for anti-facists — was responsible for the violent raid and not Trump supporters.
There is no evidence that Antifa activists took part in yesterday’s riots.
“No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys, homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors,” the 52-year-old actress tweeted.
“They are the douchebags that go out and do the evil bidding of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do their worst. #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler.”
In the past, Sorbo was also been dragged on Twitter by the Twitter Queen herself, Chrissy Teigen.
The actor attracted Teigen’s wrath when he tweeted, “Only in America are legal citizens labeled ‘racists’ and ‘Nazis’, but illegal aliens are called ‘Dreamers.'”
“Hot take, boy Xena,” she replied.
Then, as votes were being counted following the US election last November, Teigen again roasted Sorbo for this tweet: “I never see people driving around with Biden flags, someone want to explain how this guy who couldn’t fill a high school auditorium is leading currently?”
Teigen’s response, “Because we know how stupid it f–kin looks lmao.”
