Actress Haley Webb has accused Kevin Sorbo of sexual harassment. Webb tweeted yesterday that Sorbo “pressured” her in a bid to try and make her have sex with him and publicly shamed her on set when she refused.
She also claimed that Sorbo tried to get the director of a film in which they co-starred to “add unnecessary sex scenes” between the two of them.
I don't think the person who repeatedly tried to pressure his 3 decades younger co-star into sleeping with him, publicly shame her on set when she refused to and insist the director add unnecessary sex scenes between us should be flapping his gums about feminism. https://t.co/7kfb8sZvD2

Webb made the accusation on Twitter yesterday after Sorbo took to the social media site on Tuesday, June 18, to allege that feminists were not defending the outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders because she isn’t liberal.
“Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders,” Sorbo tweeted. “It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.”

Although Webb did not give details about her allegation, she and Sorbo are known to have co-starred in the 2015 romantic comedy film Single In South Beach, directed by Alejandro Itkin and Hunter Carson. Webb played the leading role of Amy while Sorbo played Sam in the film.
Sorbo, born in September 1958, is 60 years old, while Webb, who was born in November 1985, is 33 years old.
People have been reacting to Webb’s tweet in response to Sorbo’s comment.
I call that a solid burn

And, a guy who wraps himself in the Bible and Jesus to excuse how horrible he acts — exactly the kind of guy the Jesus of the New Testament denounced. I have NEVER liked him, back to Hercules. Good for you, Haley.
