What has “Xena: Warrior Princess” got to do with the unrest in the Capitol this week?

The wild fighter was not among the instigators and she was not with the police

But if Hercules starts making dubious claims about these events, you’d better believe that she will be there to expose them

Kevin Sorbo, who appeared as Hercules in the ’90s series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” started the fight with a photo of Trump supporters who broke through the Capitol

Sorbo, 62, a Trump supporter, responded to a tweet from attorney and Trump supporter Rogan O’Handley

“Do these look like Trump supporters?” O’Handley tweeted and shared a photo of pro-Trump rioters at the Capitol on Wednesday with “Or leftist agitators disguised as Trump supporters”

Twitter had already labeled the tweet as “rigged media” due to O’Handley’s false claim. There is no evidence that the pro-Trump mob that broke through the Capitol was made up of “leftist agitators” or Antifa, as some have suggested

But Sorbo, who is also known for the early series “Andromeda,” tweeted Handley with a quote, backing his debunked claim

No, peanut you are not patriots, you are your flying monkeys, local terrorists, QAnon actors, you are the fools who go out and do the wicked commandments of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and do their worst let #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler

“They don’t look like patriots to me,” he said, doubling down despite overwhelming evidence that the group was made up of Trump supporters

Lucy Lawless, who played the title character in the hit spin-off series “Xena: Warrior Princess” from “Hercules”, was through with her own targeted response

“No, peanut,” she said, responding to her ex-castmate’s tweet, “You’re not patriots, you’re your flying monkeys, local terrorists, QAnon actors, you’re the D-Chebags that run out and the evil commandments of Making people like you who love to wrap them up like toys and let them do their worst #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler ”

Lawless, 52, an actress from New Zealand, played Xena from 1995 to 2001 and won hearts as the warrior princess who defended the vulnerable in the fantasy series in ancient Greece, although Xena was only supposed to have a short arc on “Hercules” the character a hit spinoff ran for six seasons, beating the original show when he bowed in 1999

Lawless appeared in the reboot of “Battlestar Galactica,” “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Salem,” and “Ash vs. Evil DeadShe speaks a villain in the upcoming Illumination movie “Minions: The Rise of Gru”

But on Thursday night, it was her response to Sorbo that got Twitter applause and drove Xena into the trends. Lawless continued to refer to Sorbo as a “peanut” in follow-up tweets. The social media duel inspired “Xena” fans, hers To profess undying love for the character and lawless
