Kevin Sorbo has branded Hollywood men “foolish, useless idiots” with a “misunderstanding of masculinity”.
The 65-year-old “The Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” actor, who last month claimed he was shunned by Hollywood because of his conservative views, wrote a controversial new essay for Fox News, in which he criticized “Woke Hollywood.”
The star took particular aim at Timothée Chalamet, 27, and Billy Porter, 54, calling fashion’s current penchant for androgyny a “masculinity crisis,” proudly noting that he found fame as a Greek demigod.
In his attack on the modern man, he also insisted that feminists had “won” when men “indulged in their baser desires” such as alcohol, drugs, video games and porn.
He wrote: “It doesn’t matter which end of the masculinity spectrum you fall on; If you are a victim of your own base desires, feminist culture has won. “You’re exactly the kind of soft man they (think) you want to be.”

His new commentary on masculinity will undoubtedly raise eyebrows thanks to his personal attacks on popular Hollywood actors and fashion darlings Timothée and Billy.
He commented on her androgynous style, writing: “Today’s society seriously misunderstands masculinity… On the one hand, we love to normalize androgynous Billy Porter-type men who wear skirts and pompous dresses…
“For example, GQ 2019’s best-dressed man, Timothée Chalamet, often wears clothes your grandfather wouldn’t have caught dead dressed like Chalamet.”
He continued: “Everywhere we look, bold, confident women are foregrounding passive men who are quietly fading into the background…”
“In the basement.” “In the past, fathers in particular have become the target of every woke Hollywood story, the bumbling, useless idiots who contribute nothing to their families or communities but instead sacrifice themselves as objects of ridicule.”

“We have such a huge divide in our country right now, and it’s being perpetuated by mainstream media, by movies and television.”
