Lucy Lawless did not hold back as she responded to her former co-star Kevin Sorbo’s tweets about the Capitol Riots.
The “Xena: Warrior Princess” actress slammed the “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” star after he falsely suggested the attack on the Capitol was an Antifa operation and not actually carried out by supporters of Donald Trump.
Sorbo re-posted Rogan O’Handley’s tweet, which asked: “Do these look like Trump supporters? Or Leftist agitators disguised as Trump supporters…” to which Trump supporter Sorbo added, “They don’t look like patriots to me…”
Lawless responded, “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.”

Lawless played the titular heroine in “Xena: Warrior Princess”, which ran from 1995 to 2001, while Sorbo played the title character on “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” between 1995 and 1999.
Sorbo’s show also featured Lawless as Xena, eventually leading to the “Xena: Warrior Princess” spinoff.
The internet was quick to react to Lawless’ comments.

Xena: Warrior Princess was the only show that passed for LGBTQ+ content back when I was a teenager and my crush on Lucy Lawless was huge. I'm glad that she continues to be the bad ass warrior princess I grew up with and that she's still kicking Hercules's ass years later 🤣 pic.twitter.com/M77DQ0yrlJ
