Actor Kevin Sorbo's controversial tweets on sex, abortion, and immigration set the Internet on fire
Some controversial new tweets from Sorbo, managed to gain about 100,000 likes and attracted over thousands of replies within just 24 hours.
Actor Kevin Sorbo became a Twitter sensation on Monday, with his name trending all over the social media platform, all thanks to some outrageous and controversial comments he made regarding certain contemporary burning issues, like sex, abortion, and immigration.
Known for his avid Christian beliefs, the 'Hercules' and 'God's Not Dead' actor's tweets went viral within seconds, as he defended Donald Trump and shaded women for reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey' in the same sentence.
If women are upset at Trump’s naughty words, who in the hell bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray?— Kevin Sorbo (@ksorbs) June 16, 2019
Sorbo's tweet referred to Trump’s comments made in the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape leaked right before the 2016 presidential election, where the sitting president of the United States had bragged about his sexual conquests and detailed how many women he attracts because of his fame. To quote the POTUS, women let him “grab ‘em by the p****", as per the conversation that took place off air. The book 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is an erotic novel exploring BDSM by E.L. James, rose to massive popularity right after its release in 2011, and along with its two sequels, ended up getting turned into a film adaptation as well, hence the absurd reference Sorbo pulled in his tweets.
But that wasn't all from the actor. Later in the day, he decided to share his thoughts on illegal immigration and gun control in the US, tweeting: "68 people were killed in mass shootings in 2018. Did you know that about 2000 were killed by illegal aliens? Just saying. Build the wall. #BuildTheWall #BuildThatWall." While Sorbo's claim of around 2,000 Americans killed by illegal immigrants was widely refuted and denounced online, he decided to take things higher by a notch on Sunday night, as he followed up with a tweet about 'morals' with regards to abortion.
"A party that supports abortion over Life, illegals aliens over its citizens, and refugees over its veterans is going to lecture me on morals. Don’t think so,” he tweeted. This wasn't his first comment on abortion though, as in 2018, he and his wife, Sam Sorbo, labeled 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.
These controversial new tweets from Sorbo, however, managed to gain about 100,000 likes and attracted over thousands of replies within just 24 hours.
