Fans ate him as she took over her former television ally in the 1990s after his response to the US Capitol uprising, and Lawless called Sorbo an “activist” – and that was the best thing she said.
The incredibly popular action TV series of the 90’s made both households and stars names – they had to make them enemies at Wednesday’s uprising in Washington.

The hosts reacted late in the evening to violence in the US Capitol, Slam Trump and his activists
Lawless was absolutely ruthless in responding to his former star and colleague after he began to share unfounded conspiracy theories that the riots were actually antifa, posing as Trump supporters.
The siege, which lasted several hours and resulted in five deaths, including a police officer on Thursday, was televised live and heavily filmed. Many did not wear masks, which made them much easier to recognize.
In general, those identified so far have been right-wing extremists. Many believe that President Trump’s inflammatory comments before the siege during a rally (not to mention his baseless allegations of election fraud for weeks) helped incite violence.

Condemned fiercely by members of both parties – and as a result of which several people have already resigned from the White House, members have been impeachment and are calling for its removal through the 25th Amendment – there has definitely been a very strong reaction to sharing such dangerous conspiracy theories without evidence.
Maybe that’s why Lawless was so ruthlessly effective in overthrowing Sorbo, spreading unfounded allegations that it was “left-wing agitators disguised as Trump supporters” who actually infiltrated and desecrated the US Capitol.
“They don’t look like patriots to me,” he wrote of his share of the false allegations.

“No, Peanut. They’re not patriots,” Lawless said, calling him an activist on his labels. “They’re your flying monkeys, domestic terrorists, QAnon actors. They’re the guys who go out and carry out the evil orders of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do the worst.”
Earlier, Sorbo doubled his allegations by writing on Twitter that “ANTIFA has filed the indictment in the Capitol building, dressed as Trump supporters.”
There is no evidence to support this, while there is growing evidence that pro-Trump and far-right groups have been represented, according to Mashable.

One of the main sources of antifa conspiracy theory is a conservative article in The Washington Times claiming that a little-known face recognition company called XRVision has identified two people involved in the riot as members of the alleged group.
The company has since denied any images made by its software to the public domain, and the Times has removed the article. But not before some members of Congress also get involved in the story by sharing similar moods to the case of Sorbo.
Sorbo did not respond to the removal of Lawless, but the fans absolutely liked the exchange, as one of them said: “I always knew you would win in this 1v1.” You can check their reactions below.
