The decade's most triggering comedy
Actor Michael Imperioli fumed over the weekend in response to the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling that struck down a Colorado law that would have required a Christian graphic designer to design a website for a same-sex wedding.
In a 6-3 decision in the case of 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, the high court cited the First Amendment in ruling that Lorie Smith could not be forced by state civil rights law to design websites that run counter to her sincerely-held religious beliefs.
Imperioli, known for his role as Christopher Moltisanti in “The Sopranos,” reacted to the ruling on Instagram, posting, “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.”
“Thank you Supreme Court for allowing me to discriminate and exclude those who I don’t agree with and am opposed to. USA ! USA!” He continued. “Hate and ignorance is not a legitimate point of view. … America is becoming dumber by the minute.”
Imperioli, a hardcore leftist, is a major supporter of the LGBT community and frequently posts about it on social media.
“HAPPY PRIDE 2023! much love to all…stay strong, be fearless, be proud. and make sure to register to VOTE so we can get the bigots out of office!” he wrote last week.
He is especially a backer of the transgender movement as he posted a trans flag earlier this year, writing: “Dear brothers, sisters and siblings. fear not, be strong and don’t let the bastards grind you down. love you.”
