Former "Hercules" star, political conservative and outspoken Christian Kevin Sorbo unleashed a Facebook rant about the protestors in Ferguson, Missouri, labeling them "animals" and "losers."

http://www.tmz.com/2014/08/21/kevin-sorbo-ferguson-racist-facebook-rant/" rel="nofollow - Sorbo took to Facebook Wednesday, Aug. 20, to discuss the Ferguson protestors who have been calling for justice since the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. The actor criticized those who have been gathering in the St. Louis suburb for having what he said are ulterior motives.

"Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man," https://www.facebook.com/KevinSorbo/posts/809048709135197" rel="nofollow - Sorbo wrote . "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. Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the voted in has only made things worse for them, not better."

He then copy and pasted a portion of text from an article written by Alicia Colon for the Jewish World Review titled http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0814/colon082014.php3" rel="nofollow - "Media Clueless About the Inner City." In her article, Colon -- who is also a Breitbart columnist -- accuses the press of catering to "media whores seek only to generate news that reflects their own bleeding heart ideology."

The media's frenzy that descended upon Ferguson, Mo. once again demonstrates its complete ignorance of life in the inner city. Anyone who has survived the barrios and the ghettos would recognize the usual cast of characters that converge on these incidents and would stay far away from them. But no-these media lapdogs shove mikes in their faces and actually believe their 'eyewitness' versions that nearly always turn out to be bogus and nothing other than a self-serving photo op.

Conservative rantings are nothing new from Sorbo, who currently appears in Investigation Discovery's "Heartbreakers." Earlier this week, http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/08/18/christian-actor-kevin-sorbo-why-do-atheists-get-so-angry-at-something-you-dont-believe-in/" rel="nofollow - Sorbo dubbed atheists "angry" while promoting his recent film, "God Is Not Dead," in which he plays an atheist, according to RawStory. Last year, he http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/06/hercules-actor-kevin-sorbo-bashes-hollywoods-liberal-hypocrisy-and-rips-obama-one-of-the-worst-records-in-american-history/" rel="nofollow - took aim at Hollywood for liberal hypocrisy .

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

http://www.thewrap.com/tag/kevin_sorbo/" rel="nofollow - 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, http://www.thewrap.com/police-officer-points-gun-at-protestor-says-i-will-f-cking-kill-you-video/" rel="nofollow - 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 https://www.facebook.com/KevinSorbo" rel="nofollow - 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.

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.
