Kevin Sorbo, who starred as Hercules in the '90s series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and is a right-wing Republican who apparently has been duped into a world of conspiracy theories, weighed in on a photo on Twitter of Trump supporters who breached the Capitol.
He later retweeted a photo of the attackers, writing, "They don't look like patriots to me..." The original tweet read, "Do these look like Trump supporters?" Some were even fearless enough to clap back at Xena, but it did not seem to faze the actress. "Or Leftist agitators disguised as Trump supporters". They are the d--bags 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.
Lawless calling out Sorbo's misinformation caused her name to start trending on Twitter - Xena's tweet received nearly four times as many retweets and likes as Sorbo's at the time of this article.
"No, Peanut. They are not patriots".
Another fan also shared Sorbo's hypocrisy, as illustrated in four tweets from Wednesday morning and afternoon.
Sorbo tweeted a response to a surreal portrait of three protesters who rushed the Capitol, including prominent conspiracy theorist Jake Angeli, widely known as that guy who appeared in DC shirtless and heavily painted in red, white and blue, wearing a horned headdress, draped in fur.
Less than an hour later he tweeted, 'History is being made.' but another hour later he changed his tune considerably.
'To those storming the Capitol building: Please be careful, do not act like ANTIFA. Respect the police and know they are mostly on our side, they are simply trying to do their job, ' he said. Here's the best acting he's ever done.,' which Lawless responded, 'Oooooh, PEANUT!'
After Lawless's response, many fans of the series chose to speak out in support of the actress, claiming that they had always been by her side and that she represented them.
Then, as votes were being counted following the United States 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 now?"
