It was a clash of superheroes, all on social media.
Xena: Warrior Princess star Lucy Lawless has targeted her former co-star, Hercules actor Kevin Sorbo, over a comment he made, speculating on the political views of some of the protesters storming the US Capitol this week.
The drama erupted when Republican Sorbo responded to a tweet Wednesday that included a photo of some of the Capitol rebels, along with the caption: “Do they look like Trump supporters? Or left-wing agitators disguised as Trump supporters …”
“They don’t look like patriots to me …” Sorbo replied.

Despite reports describing the angry mob as Trump supporters, some have theorized that Antifa members may have been hidden from the rebels.
Almost 24 hours after Sorbo’s original tweet, Lawless responded with fierce criticism of his former star.
“No, peanuts. They are not patriots,” she wrote. “They are your flying monkeys, domestic terrorists, QAnon actors. They are the doctor’s bags that go out and carry out the evil orders of people like you, who like to roll them up like toys and let them do the worst. #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler “
Lawless originally directed the character, Xena, on the television show Hercules: Legendary Journeys, with Sorbo playing the title role before receiving the wildly popular separate show Xena: Warrior Princess, which ran from 1995 to 2001.
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys ran from 1995 to 1999, and the two actors starred in each other’s shows.

“Day 2021: Hercules and Xena fight,” said another.
“He always preferred Xena to Hercules,” wrote another, ostensibly in the corner of the former female television warrior.
