Hercules actor Kevin Sorbo was roundly mocked over the weekend for not knowing what pronouns are.

“If CNN+ had pronouns they’d be was/were,” he wrote, referring to the video streaming service launched several weeks ago by the cable news channel. Warner Bros. announced that they will be shutting it down at the end of this month because the company wants to form a single streaming service for all of its properties.

Sorbo isn’t the first prominent conservative to not quite understand what pronouns are while making a joke about the LGBTQ practice of sharing one’s pronouns.

“My preferred pronouns are: MA/GA,” Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) tweeted this past December, referring to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

Earlier last year, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), another far-right member of Congress, was mocked for saying “My pronoun is ‘Patriot.’”

And Sorbo got mocked on Twitter for his claim that “was/were” are pronouns.
