We weren't sure whether we'd ever see another epic showdown between Xena the warrior princess and Greek hero Hercules. Thanks to the internet, these extraordinary things happen.
This week saw pro-Trump protesters storm the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. Since then a number of far-right supporters have claimed it was the left wing "antifa" that staged it.
Among those pushing the agenda is 'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys' star Kevin Sorbo.
But his former co-star and lead of 'Hercules' spin-off 'Xena: Warrior Princess' was having none of it.
Sorbo tweeted: "ANTIFA led the charge into the capitol building dressed as Trump supporters."
He also retweeted someone who wrote "Do these look like Trump supporters? Or Leftist agitators disguised as Trump supporters", adding the words "They don’t look like patriots to me…"
Lawless clapped back, writing: "No, Peanut. They are not Patriots. They are your flying monkeys,homegrown terrorists, QAnon actors. They are the douchebags that go out and do the evil bidding of people like you who like to wind them up like toys and let them do their worst. #keepingYourFilthyHandsclean #enabler"

Look, all I'm saying is that if we don't get an online news source reporting HERCULES MURDERED IN PUBLIC BY XENA what the fuck did we even invent the internet for?
