Michael Imperioli: Homophobes aren’t allowed to watch The Sopranos and Goodfellas

Sopranos Star Michael Imperoli Isn’t happy with the Supreme Court’s recent decision allowing business owners to turn away LGBTQ+ customers and has fought back by saying fanatics can’t see its content.

What did Michael Imperioli say?

Imperioli took to social media over the weekend to share photos of the Supreme Court decision. In his caption for the news, Imperioli said he “decided to ban fanatics and homophobes” from watching things he’s been in, including The Sopranos, The White Lotus and Goodfellas.

“I have decided to ban fanatics and homophobes from watching The Sopranos, The White Lotus, Goodfellas, or any other film or television show that I have been a part of,” Imperioli said. “Thank you Supreme Court for allowing me to discriminate against and exclude those I disagree with and reject.”

Imperioli’s history as an actor is extensive. The star has had roles in numerous cult films and television projects including Bad Boys, The Basketball Diaries, Shark Tale and more. Although his request will obviously not be enforceable in any way, Imperioli’s message acts as a kind of protest against the news.

The move follows a Supreme Court ruling that would allow business owners to refuse to serve customers if their views violate the owners’ religious beliefs. The decision was particularly aggravated after a case in which a woman said she didn’t want to create wedding websites for gay couples because of her views.
