Kevin ‘Hercules’ Sorbo Ignites a Twitter Storm in just Three Tweets

Actor Kevin Sorbo’s name was trending on Twitter on Monday due to comments the “Hercules” and “God’s Not Dead” star posted over the weekend concerning sex, abortion, and immigration.

Kevin Sorbo, is very open about his Christian faith and his three tweets this past weekend quickly went viral for all the wrong or right reasons depending on your point of view.

After addressing the hypocrisy of the left for complaining about Trump’s language in the now infamous “Access Hollywood” open mic comment he went on to express his views on gun control and immigration.

Sorbo’s claim that some 2,000 Americans are killed by illegal immigrants was widely decried online, but seems to be legitimate, according to Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review (emphasis added):

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released its annual report on deportations and the numbers are startling. In FY 2018, ICE made 158,581 administrative arrests, of which 138,117 had a prior criminal record. The total of 542,798 criminal convictions and arrests accrued between these aliens is simply astounding. … Every one of these crimes, by definition, is avoidable because the perpetrators shouldn’t be here in the first place, and indeed, wouldn’t be here if not for the magnets, lack of a border wall, and sanctuary cities and courts. Two thousand twenty-eight homicide offenses, 5,562 robberies, 11,766 weapons offenses, 50,753 assault charges, 76,585 dangerous drug charges, 80,730 DUIs, and over 12,000 sexual offenses.”

Sorbo followed this up with a tweet on Sunday evening in regards to morals, including the topic of abortion.

This is not the first time that Sorbo has condemned abortion. In 2018, for example, the actor and his wife Sam Sorbo denounced abortion as “evil.”

“Secular humanists have made the word abortion sound like a woman’s right, synonymous with health care, female empowerment, standing for women’s issues, a choice, a solution; anything but the truth,” the couple wrote in a op-ed for CNS News. “The truth is, however, abortion is the termination of life. It is just a euphemism for murder because the only reason to get an abortion is to avoid the potential of birth – a human birth.”

“We dress it up with ‘my body, my choice,’ but it is still a life inside of a woman’s womb, and that life is still extinguished by the brutal procedure of abortion,” the duo added.

The three tweets from Sorbo, which are far outside the Hollywood norm, have over 120,000 “likes” and over 42,000 shares at the time of this story and generated thousands of replies. Even those that already didn’t like him admitted that when they saw his name trending they “just had to click” to find out why his name was trending.
