Whack 'em, just don't whack 'em
In an AP piece in which he expresses his gratitude for the opportunity to portray Vito as gay, "The Sopranos" actor Joseph R. Gannascoli also says that he's caught some shit over his homo-gay turn. He tells the AP:
"I'm a Brooklyn guy. I was just in Brooklyn last night. And, you know, I had some real wise guys that look at me and they give me dirty looks. I've had guys, like, come after me in clubs"
No word if those "real wise guys" also had beef with the whole "murdering people" aspect of Vito's character; though it would unfortunately seem that for a few folks, the whacking of guys so that they shoot blood draws less a reaction than does whacking guys so that they shoot another fluid. Though, of course, if the first type of whacking involves sea men -- all bets are off.
