Christian actor Kevin Sorbo has spoken out about supposedly being ‘banned’ from a comic convention. As Faithwire previously reported, East Coast Comicon organizer Cliff Galbraith rejected Sorbo from the event due to his friendship with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
“I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon,” organizer Galbraith wrote on Facebook. “He’s pals with Sean Hannity. Just can’t do it.”
“I thought this [the Facebook post] was pretty funny. I laughed,” the “Hercules” and “Andromeda” star told LifeZette in an interview on the bizarre decision. “This is a first for me,” he said, referring to persecution from comic conventions.
“I don’t get mad at people who have a different opinion than I do,” Sorbo continued. The “Let There Be Light” star continued, “To me, it’s like, what a smart move. I was never even invited [to the convention]. My agent never went there. I went online and it’s a very small con, so he [Gailbraith] was trying to drum up interest in his con and himself. I appreciate it and I applaud his entrepreneurial spirit, especially for a guy who is a socialist.”
Sorbo said that it is about time the leftward-leaning came to terms with the election result. “The Left is so angry about the election still, over a year later,” he said. And what about his friendship and professional partnership with Sean Hannity? Well, he said he plans on continuing to work with him in the future.
“We’re certainly going to keep Sean in the loop for future projects,” the actor stated.
Hannity said that Galbraith is “just mad that comic book movies are just boring formulaic Hollywood drivel that people are tired of, adding that “Let There Be Light” was a “breakout hit without any Hollywood support.”
“I’ll pity the poor insecure guy who cannot escape his comic book world, and handle a little real-world truth and reality and an opposing viewpoint,” the famed news anchor continued. “Take that Batman.”
“The Left always screams about tolerance and freedom of speech, but it’s a one-way street for them,” Sorbo added. “I don’t get upset with someone having a different point of view.”
“The Left gets so angry and they go crazy,” the “God’s Not Dead” star concluded. “What are you going to do? It is what they are.”
