“The Guineas Show” Insults all Italians and Italian-Americans
I wrote the following letter to the producers of a disgrace called “The Guineas Show.”
To the Producers of “The Guinea Show”:
Every Italian American I spoke too, and growing up in Manhattan’s Little Italy, I know plenty, thinks your show is a disgrace, and highly insulting to Italian-Americans. Try to do this type of show highlighting African-Americans, Jews, Mexicans, or the gay community, and you would have pickets outside your home within hours. And they would stay there until all remnants of your show were removed from any, and all types of media.
And don’t think you can hide behind the first amendment, or say, “Hey, what’s the big deal! It’s only comedy.”
Words, ideas and stereotypes can be harmful. But obviously, you don’t get it. Your main concern is making money, and you don’t care who you hurt, because at the end of the day, the number of zeros in your bank account is the only thing that matters.
I, for one, will follow you closely, and I will do everything in my power, including uniting as many Italian-America as I can, to make sure your show does not reach the light of day on any network.
If you had one iota of decency, you’d take down your filth from Utube, where it can be seen by millions.
But we both know that will never happen. So prepare for a battle to save all Italian-Americans from your indignities. I will not stop doing whatever I can to legally ostracize your show.
A Clip from The Guineas Show is below. If you find it as offensive as I do, and as the Son’s of Italy does, feel free to write to the producers of the show. Their email addresses on on their site.
The show has already been taken off Blip TV due to the work, in part, of the Sons of Italy
