Hercules Star Kevin Sorbo Apologizes for Calling Ferguson Protesters Animals

“Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting … It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are,” Sorbo wrote in a controversial Facebook post

Kevin Sorbo has had a change of heart.

The conservative actor issued an apology Thursday, just hours after he wrote a Facebook post calling protesters in Ferguson, Mo. “losers” and “animals.”

Late Wednesday night, the 55-year-old “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” star posted a series of scathing comments about the ongoing demonstrations in Ferguson over the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed, 18-year-old African-American, who was shot and killed by a police officer.

“Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man,” Sorbo wrote in the Wednesday post, which has since been deleted. “It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are. It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures. It's always someone else's fault when you give up.”

Sorbo didn't stop there. “Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the [sic] voted in has only made things worse for them, not better,” he said.


After the backlash, Sorbo wrote a second Facebook post, apologizing.

“I stand humiliated and humbled. My most sincere apologies for my post on the events in Ferguson,” he said. “I posted out of frustration and anger over the violence and looting. My words were never meant to hurt the African-American community. My use of the word “losers’ was directed at those doing the looting and vandalising and violence toward others,” he continued.

Aside from his breakout role in “Hercules: The Legendary Journey” from 1995-1999, Sorbo's acting credits include “Andromeda,” “Kull the Conqueror,” and this year's hit Christian drama, “God's Not Dead.”


Read the actor's entire apology below:

Okay…. I stand humiliated and humbled. My most sincere apologies for my post on the events in Ferguson. I posted out of frustration and anger over the violence and looting. My words were never meant to hurt the African-American community. My use of the word “losers’ was directed at those doing the looting and vandalising and violence toward others. Anyone who does that is a loser in my book. So I will not apologise to those who are looting stores and vandalising there own community. I am very sorry for the police shooting. To answer violence with violence is not the answer here. Real leaders need to emerge out of that community to deal with the problems with the excessive use of police force. I agree with you that the police action has only added to the reaction of the residents of Ferguson. Yes. I am an idiot and do hold myself accountable for the way my post came off.


 
nah, you ain't sorry brah
 
you tried to become relevant again, and it backfired, making you the real silly ass loser
 
hope it was werth it

I was wondering why his irrelevant ass was on my tv screen yesterday. The rioting and looting was old news after the first day or two. No comment on ANYTHING else? You can tell he legitimately hates black people...I mean damn what he said was racist ether designed for kudos and I bet he got plenty. It's unfortunate that he didn't say this when he had a career to lose.
