Actor and legendary cover model Fabio Lanzoni expressed his opinions on Tuesday on the status of the United States, specifically criticizing the contemporary definition of masculinity.


Known by his moniker, Fabio, the Italian-American icon joined “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” on Tuesday and gave his reasons for thinking the world is “upside down.”

Fabio is best known for modeling romance novel covers, where he has portrayed the heroic, masculine male protagonist across hundreds of book titles.

“Today, it’s almost like they don’t like men, that testosterone… Of course, in times of war, who are you going to rely to [sic]? Soldiers, they have to have testosterone. And I mean, it’s like these people, Hamas, they have plenty of testosterone, and the people are taking their side,” Fabio commented. “The world is upside down right now.”

Neil Cavuto, a Fox News host, questioned Fabio about remarks he made earlier this year regarding the “soft” men in modern romance novels.

During a June interview with The New York Post, Fabio criticized the prevalent portrayal of “soft masculinity” in a number of recent novels.

“In life, there are trends, and this is nothing more than a trend. It’s ridiculous, like all the rest of the woke movement,” he said.

The famous model, who has authored many books, is well-known for his interpretation of the rugged hero.

“I talk to many people, I talk to many women and the women say, ‘We can’t find real men anymore.’ And they say, ‘We want a real man, not a metrosexual.’ So what they say is happening in the new romance novels is detached from reality. It’s La-La Land,” Fabio continued.

“It’s just a trend. They’re going to be in and out. That’s the reality,” he asserted.

Fabio also offered his counsel to the upcoming male generation, warning, “Be yourself and don’t drink soy milk.”
