Twitter’s latest right-wing troll is none other than nineties performer Kevin Sorbo . Most famous for his character as Hercules in the 1995 syndicated television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys , he has received an influx of attention for the first time in years due to his cringy far-right internet presence.
Sorbo’s nonsensical tweets take aim at ” libs” and feminists often preceded with sarcastic tellings-off that he is doling out some “common sense,” because he feels liberals cannot handle the coldnes hard truth. Most recently, he fuelled off an extraordinary tweet want a call for more “diversity” in the NBA( spoke: more white people) while demonstrating a strong comprehend on geography. “Really?” Sorbo author,” Toronto Raptors not going to go to The White House because they want to boycott President Trump who has done more for the African/ American community than Obama did ?”
The post racked up 14,000 replies with numerous people pointing out the obvious: Toronto is not part of the United Commonwealth. The replies trashing Sorbo’s shortcoming logic far outweighed the merely 2,800 retweets he received.
Earlier this month, when it was announced that Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be stepping down as White House press secretary, the 60 -year-old shared a hot take on feminism.” Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders ,” he tweeted.” It seems women’s rights exclusively matter if those women are liberal .” It’s unclear which of Sanders’ rights Sorbo concludes need protecting, or for that matter, what he guesses feminism is. Though the tweet received considerably more retweets than his tweet about the Toronto Raptors, his replies were similarly filled with Twitter users poking fun at him.” I don’t know about you ,” wrote @gordonhaber,” but I woke up this morning wondering what Kevin Sorbo had to say about feminism .” Writer and amateur MMA fighter Tony Posnanski was blunter, replying,” I don’t think it’s so much of a liberal situation as much as an asshole thing .”
One of Sorbo’s most infuriating tweets to date speaks,” If women are upset at Trump’s naughty words, who in the inferno bought 80 million two copies of 50 Shades of Gray ?” Apparently, Hercules did not get the memo on consent. The replies on this tweet are especially comical as customers mocked the false equivalence of Sorbo’s message.” If people detest being run over by autoes who the hell bought all the tickets to see the Pixar movie Cars ?” wrote jester Alan Resnick. Because Twitter is a ghastly home, Sorbo received more than 71,000 likes.
Though no one has really been paying attention until now, Sorbo has always been vocal about his conservative positions. The Minnesota native was raised in a religious family and has long believed that Hollywood discriminates against Christian actors who are public about their religious beliefs. In an interview with The Greenville News earlier this year, he said,” I’ve been completely blacklisted .” Sorbo attributes his occupation to “faith-based” and independent films, presumably the only wield he has been able to get. He was even cast in the disturbing far-right, anti-abortion film Roe v. Wade , alongside Milo Yiannopoulos and Tomi Lahren, before backing out at the last minute. In 2016, he voiced his support for then-candidate Trump because he conceived Jesus would vote for Trump, once again demonstrating foolproof logic.
When Sorbo isn’t too busy take down progressives, quoting Candace Owens, or retweeting other right-wing C-list luminaries( looking at you, Stacey Dash ), he watches a livestream of a bald eagle sitting in a tree. That is actually something he does and has is being done” off and on for five months .” This guy genuinely loves America. Except for the Democrats, feminists, professional basketball players, and female readers of erotica, of course.
