We Have a Deal

Some guy of whom I’ve never heard before, who apparently appeared in some television shows I’ve never watched, is forbidding everyone who doesn’t celebrate child abuse from watching him do whatever it is he does.

Michael Imperioli is among many actors in Hollywood speaking out against the Supreme Court, with the “Sopranos” star making a statement against the group’s ruling in favor of a Christian web designer who sought legal protection to discriminate against same-sex marriages due to her religious beliefs.

Imperioli shared a screenshot of a news story about the ruling on Instagram, with the headline “Supreme Court protects web designer who won’t do gay wedding websites,” along with a caption railing against the decision.

“I’ve decided to forbid bigots and homophobes from watching ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘The White Lotus,’ ‘Goodfellas’ or any movie or TV show I’ve been in,” Imperioli wrote Saturday morning. “Thank you Supreme Court for allowing me to discriminate and exclude those who I don’t agree with and am opposed to. USA! USA!”

Sounds great! I love the smell of Freedom of Association in the afternoon. And I can’t help but wonder, in the aftermath of the Bud Light, Target, and Disney debacles, how many producers and directors are going to be eager to hire actors and actresses who have antagonized the greater part of the entertainment market?
