Star and Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen just savaged an iconic 90s TV actor on Twitter - and she used Kiwi icon Xena to do it.

Teigen took on actor Kevin Sorbo, famous for his role in 90s hit series Hercules, for his latest questionable political tweet, the likes of which has previously included musings like "Jesus would have voted for Trump".

This time, he tweeted: "Only in America are legal citizens labelled 'racists' and 'Nazis' but illegal aliens are called 'Dreamers'."

He was referring to the US DREAM Act which protects illegal immigrants who were brought to the US by their parents as children.

It was a tweet which Teigen simply couldn't let go, so she took Sorbo down in just four words:

Fans lost it, responding with a stream of images and gifs of New Zealand's own Lucy Lawless as Xena the warrior princess, and tagging the actress in the hopes of getting a response.

While Lawless didn't respond directly to Teigen's tweet, she did pop up on Twitter the following day simply stating: "I'm a Dreamer".

Lawless also took to Twitter for Valentine's Day, but instead took the opportunity to wish her fans a happy Galentine's Day, with a throwback to her Xena days.
