Kevin Sorbo ranted on Facebook about the unrest in Ferguson while calling the protesters “animals” and “losers.” The post appears to be taken down now, but the Conservative actor told TMZ  that he’s not a racist and apologized for his remarks. Apparently, he just acts like a racist on Facebook.



“Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man,” Sorbo wrote. “It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are.”


He added, “Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the [sic] voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.”

According to TMZ, Sorbo then proceeded to paste the contents of a recent article from the Jewish World Review entitled, “Media Clueless About the Inner City.”

Addicting Info captured a few screenshots of the response from some Facebook users:





In fact, the police department in Ferguson has stated on several occasions that the looting and violence came from people outside of Ferguson.

    Can’t wait for the fight between Hercules here and Walker, Texas Ranger for the last seat in the Clown Kar!

  2. Khary A August 21st, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    I’ll say it, I always hated Hercules…just an awful show. On those points alone this “man” should have been boo’d and shunned.

    As soon as they realize it may hurt their employment they find “salvation”.It’s amazing they don’t think before they post their hate. (btw can you tell me what happened to my “other” identity?)

      Dude. Brand new identity.

      I think you are logged in differently, “life” now, not “fasted” .

        Mark – In fairness, Disqus has been acting weird today. At times, I enter in and all the posts are just listed. There’s no space for adding comments. That’s happened to me 4 or 5 times today.

          They tell me my password in incorrect.

          I will just register anew.
          “Sorry, that email is in use”


          And I have know idea what that sideways G icon is.

      Or reverse what I said. Regardless I think it has something to do with how you are logged into disqus.

    It doesn’t surprise me that the situation in Ferguson is exposing the true feelings and attitudes of people like Sorbo. What millions of Americans like Sorbo don’t understand is that just because a POC is now the POTUS, it doesn’t mean that racism and bigotry are dead. It’s not we POC, atheists, LGBTQ Americans, and others who have deluded ourselves into believing that Obama’s election fundamentally changed America into a nation where bigotry and racism no longer exists. It’s the practitioners of racism and bigotry who have used his election to say, “Hey! “America elected a POC to be POTUS.” “This proves racism and bigotry in America are dead!” Their constant declaration that we are now living in “a post-racial” America is a lie, and they know it. If we have been living in a real post-racial America since January 20, 2009, people like Sorbo wouldn’t be making comments that denigrate any group of persons. Their mouths say one thing, but their actions nurture and propagate the same vile beliefs and practices they have held all along. Obama’s election indicates that America is changing, and this is what has Sorbo’s knickers in a twist.

    Although many Americans have a desire to move forward to build “a more perfect union,” those like Sorbo are having a very difficult time dealing with it. Their frustration is shown in the comments they make and in the things they do. Take Sorbo, for example. He posts two contrasting positions in one Facebook post. He mentions that he has always thought that all of us are Americans first, and then, he makes a divisive, and imho, un-American, statement by saying that President Obama is “the African Americans” president, not America’s president. I’ve also noticed that it is often those who claim others inject race into conversations are the ones who do it and are unable to see that they’re doing it. Sorbo goes on to state that this president has made things “worse” for Black Americans. I’m retired and doing well financially, and so are millions of other Black Americans. I’m glad Sorbo made this claim because it debunks the previous claim that some have been making for five years that blacks voted for Obama because we “expected” him to “do” something for us.

    Where’s my little pink pony, Sorbo?

    • tiredoftea August 21st, 2014 at 9:52 pm

      So, wait? a black POTUS doesn’t mean we’re all healed now? I’m soooo bummed!

  5. Tommy6860 August 21st, 2014 at 6:07 pm

    Just like the Ferguson councilman who had regrets expressing his true feelings, this guy does the same thing; I’m not buying it. The sorry ass part for this guy is, his acting stinks with his remorse. It’s too bad that it’s only hindsight in situations like this, that’s cause for their (faux) remorse, but their foresight before speaking is blinded by their bigotry.

    “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience” found on a shelf today and planned reading.

    I am a parcel of vain strivings tied
    by a chance bond together,
    dangling this way and that,
    their links were made so loose and wide,
    Methinks, for milder weather.

    Walden inspired Ghandi and the passive resistance movement.
    Humanity continues trying to learn from this man.

    • tiredoftea August 21st, 2014 at 9:53 pm

      Nice, thanks!

    • Deborah August 22nd, 2014 at 2:28 am

      You mean Henry David Thoreau inspired Ghandi. A friend said I reminded him of Ghandi, so I introduced him to Thoreau.

    This should shoot Sorbo’s stock way up for for Republicans. They can add him to their list of heroes like George Zimmerman, Vladimir Putin, and Ted Nugent.

    • mea_mark August 21st, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      Maybe he just wants a part in the next Atlas Shrugged movie.

      • M D Reese August 21st, 2014 at 9:15 pm

        Is Dinesh D’Souza writing the screenplay? (Hopefully from his jail cell.)

    • M D Reese August 21st, 2014 at 9:14 pm

      Let’s hope that they have him do the keynote speech at the RNC. Ted can provide the background noise while Vlad rips his shirt off and wrestles with Zimmerman. They really do need some classy acts for their Big Top show.

        Clint’s not coming back? Crap!

            True, unless it’s otherwise occupied!

      • William Carr August 27th, 2014 at 2:00 pm

        No, no. People who struggle with Zimmerman get shot dead.. oh, wait.

        Never mind.

        • M D Reese August 28th, 2014 at 4:28 pm

          I’m thinkin win-win…

  8. Nicholas Russell Harris August 21st, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    I love him as an actor, from watch Hercules as a kid and all, but I detest his political views. . .

  9. M D Reese August 21st, 2014 at 9:10 pm

    He thought it, he said it, he meant it. I’m really sick of half-assed non-apologies.

  10. indpendentphil August 21st, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    I could not be more disappointed. My Hercules hero a racist? Good grief. I will not be watching his hokey stuff anymore.

  11. fahvel August 22nd, 2014 at 2:51 am

    nicely said!!!!!!!!!!!

    The unemployed former actor Kevin Sorbo says…

    Why do the unbelievably stupid always feel the need to speak?

  13. AlCum August 22nd, 2014 at 8:05 am

    I have never heard of Kevin Sorbo, ever, in my life. If you’re going to be a celebrity, the first rule is that I should know who the heck you are.

    • Ronald Woolever August 22nd, 2014 at 10:54 am

      Played Hercules maybe a 100 years ago.

      • AlCum August 22nd, 2014 at 11:33 pm

        In what? A movie, TV series? Never heard of the movie either.

        • Ronald Woolever August 23rd, 2014 at 2:48 pm

          It was a TV series. Actually, it started off as made for TV movies 5 I believe in 1994, followed by 110 episodes of Hercules from ’95 to ’99. He also did a TV series about space called Andromeda from 2000-2005

          • AlCum August 23rd, 2014 at 4:18 pm

            Wow, thanks. I’ve never been happier to be out of touch with pop culture. Never heard of any of that. Too busy living.

          • Odd Jørgensen August 24th, 2014 at 5:47 am

            It was a cheap spinoff from Xena warrior princess,which is not exactly a stamp of quality.

          • SkeeterVT August 24th, 2014 at 7:26 am

            Actually, it was the other way around: “Xena: Warrior Princess” was a spinoff of “Hercules.”

          • Odd Jørgensen August 25th, 2014 at 8:45 pm

            I stand corrected.

          • Ronald Woolever August 24th, 2014 at 10:26 am

            too busy for Wikipedia? No lazy is your MO

          • AlCum August 24th, 2014 at 11:34 pm

            Why the insults, pal?

            If I’d never heard of them, how would I be Wiki’ing them? Think before you insult.

          • Ronald Woolever September 20th, 2014 at 2:22 pm

            I prefer to just insult. It puts me on an intellectual level equal to your own

          • AlCum September 20th, 2014 at 3:40 pm

            You can only dream of such, chief. Once you get into junior high, you will understand.

  14. whatthe46 August 22nd, 2014 at 9:16 am

    what i hate, other than his ignorant post, is that he had the fuckin’ audacity to apologize. he said what he said because he meant it. don’t apologize. own it! he was obviously
    proud of the statement when he made it.
    now that everyone knows the real Kevin S, I hope he never lands another
    gig. The BITCH!!!

  15. Kino August 22nd, 2014 at 12:29 pm

    Between Kevin Sorbo and James Woods is easy to understand why certain aging actors don’t work as often. Hell, I don’t care that they’re conservative, but I do care they have a (minor) celebrity spotlight to behave ignorantly within.

  16. Dcbos August 22nd, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    Their President; telling comment I thought he was our president; racist comment.

  17. knight4444 August 22nd, 2014 at 4:09 pm

    As I’ve stated several times here, all these washed up has been caucasian actors have realized that being a douchebag racist scores brownie points with the GOP!! see FUX NEWS has to cater to it’s audience for ratings and we ALL know who the majority of their audience is, conservative caucasian racist, kevin isn’t sorry!! he’s just begging for attention and now he’ll be hitting the conservative media circuit any day now!!

    • William Carr August 27th, 2014 at 1:57 pm

      Hey, I wonder if he’ll get a spot on Fox !

  18. cecilia August 22nd, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    “Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans (I always
    thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the[y]
    voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.”

    what having Obama as OUR President has done is bring out the racists who were hiding under the stairs all along. These racists are so pissed off they are out in the streets ranting.

    Makes it easier to identify them 🙂

    • Khary A August 23rd, 2014 at 12:39 pm

      The enemy you know…

      • William Carr August 27th, 2014 at 1:56 pm

        I always like one thing about Election season. Their yard signs act as warnings that Conservatives live there, stay away.

  19. factswonthurtyou2 August 24th, 2014 at 9:39 am

    I’ve not heard of him before this but his sentiments seem similar to all the other ‘right wing’ actors we have to endure………

    • William Carr August 27th, 2014 at 1:55 pm

      And he was on a sadly screwed up show originally authored by Gene Roddenberry.

      The first season or so were okay, even promising. Then they ran out of Roddenberry ideas and went with the usual shlock.

      I came back for the finale, and it was almost unrecognizable as a Roddenberry inspired show.

    • Nicholas Russell Harris August 28th, 2014 at 11:06 pm

      Fictitious only if you do not follow the religion. And technically he was a Demi-God, or half God until his father let him into the pantheon again. . .

      Though I am a Christian (Episcopalian) I am also a polytheist and therefore do not believe the others Gods to be fiction. Because even the Bible calls them “lesser Gods) meaning even the Jews thought they existed.

      But I digress, I just felt the need to put the fact there so that there was no misconstrued bits.
