It’s very disappointing when a celebrity whose work you once enjoyed becomes so hateful that you can’t bring yourself to watch any of their work anymore.
Kevin Sorbo is one such celebrity. From whining about how the spinoff show Xena: Warrior Princess got more love than his show, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, to lying about Xena star Lucy’s relationship choices, Sorbo has proven to be a bitter person. Now, he’s shown himself to be a racist ass hat!
Kevin Sorbo posted a rant on Facebook about the unrest in Ferguson, calling protesters losers for using the shooting of Michael Brown as “an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are.”
Sorbo, a die-hard conservative, said on Facebook, “Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man.”
Ferguson is a predominantly black neighbourhood that experiences racial profiling by police who see black children as thugs, and it seems Sorbo is in favour of that type of behaviour. He wrote:
“Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man. It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are. It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures. It’s always someone else’s fault when you give up. Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President they voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.”
Sorbo then pasted the contents of a recent article from the Jewish World Review entitled, “Media Clueless About the Inner City.”
Sorbo later deleted the post and went on TMZ Live to address his racist comments. If you can stomach hearing from him, you can listen here.
