It was reported that the founder of a so-called popular New Jersey comic book convention, Cliff Galbraith, banned actor Kevin Sorbo because he’s friends with Sean Hannity. Galbraith said, ‘I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon. He’s pals with Sean Hannity. I just can’t do it.’
There’s just ONE problem with Galbraith’s story:
This is so funny and ridiculous. What's even more odd is I have never heard of this con nor did my booking… https://t.co/LoxmOIHqJ2

Seems Galbraith LIED to make himself and his con sound super tough and edgy … and instead we’re all just laughing at them.
Way to go.
From Fox News:
“I’ve never even heard of the East Coast Comicon,” Sorbo told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “They don’t have any A-Listers attending. I think they are looking for free publicity.”
I reached out to the East Coast Comicon but they did not respond to my inquiries.
Hannity told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that Galbraith is “just mad that comic book movies are just boring formulaic Hollywood drivel that people are tired of.”
“And ‘Let There Be Light’ was a breakout hit without any Hollywood support,” Hannity said.
“Let There Be Light was the fourth highest-grossing faith-based film in 2017 and they were second in box office receipts against Thor’s opening weekend.
“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,” Hannity told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “Take that Batman.”
Sorbo said he was not terribly surprised to learn about Galbraith’s snub.
Sad comic book guy is sad.
Ah yes, the “tolerant” left…. ?

The tolerant Left who Sorbo has never heard of before, yup.
That's why, it's a publicity stunt, but they'll loose more potential customers than gain.

And you can’t ban someone who’s never heard of you either.
