After All These Years, Xena is STILL Kicking Hercules’ Ass
Ready for a good old-fashioned Lucy Lawless Twitter smackdown?
All hell broke loose online last week when a group of Trump-supporting terrorists attempted a coup on the Capitol. It was a moment mixed with both confusion and horror: confusion about what was happening, and then horror at the realization of what was happening — of how easily these people were able to walk right into the building, with the police miraculously … somehow … unable to stop them. Despite the obvious nature of the perpetrators — who were holding Trump banners, waving Confederate and neo-Nazi flags and wearing Nazi slogans on hoodies — conservatives began to spread the rumor that these people were actually Antifa.
Cue rich white people showing their asses on Twitter. Kevin Sorbo, a current nobody who played Hercules in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys as well as in Xena: Warrior Princess, tweeted the following:
They don’t look like patriots to me… https://t.co/ABZG2s0G4v

… implying that Trump supporters are patriots, I guess, and these guys don’t fit the type. They must be Antifa! (Editor’s note: The trio pictured above in Sorbo’s tweet has since been ID’d, and all three are, in fact, die-hard Trump supporters and white supremacists, NOT Antifa.)
One look at Sorbo’s page is enough to tell you all you need to know about him. He says truly brilliant things like “Raise your hand if you’re more concerned about losing your Constitutional rights than you are about Covid” and “It’s genuinely sad to see that Trump, one of the few politicians that genuinely cares about us, supposedly lose an election because half the nation believed their TV sets.” There’s a lot more where that came from, but for the sake of my brain cells, I won’t keep reading.
Thankfully, Lucy Lawless is still the badass hero I grew up with.
No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys,homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors. 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

Behold the Lucy Lawless Twitter smackdown.
Lawless replied to Sorbo, “No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys, homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors.

In a world of celebrities who inevitably disappoint us, I’m glad to see Lucy Lawless is still smart, reliable and badass.
What do you think of the recent Lucy Lawless Twitter smackdown of her former co-star?
