The Customer Base Likely Isn't LGBT People
GLAAD, in a press release from August 13th, condemned…
…a grotesque, violent new product marketed by actor Joseph R. Gannascoli and Rockwell Billiards. Gannascoli, who played the gay character Vito Spatafore on the hit HBO drama, The Sopranos has authorized his name to be used on a pool stick branded with the phrase “A Cue to Die For.” The new product plays on the fact that Vito was beaten to death on The Sopranos with pool cues and then sodomized with one.
It’s as if Rockwell Billiards is clueless that hate crime violence happens in the real world.
