Marty and Bobby keep mum on ‘Goodfellas’ triggers, leaving fans intrigued!

  • Frank Sivero defends "Goodfellas" amidst trigger warning controversy
  • De Niro and Scorsese remain silent on the issue
  • Trigger warnings in film industry and their impact on artistic expression

Alright, grab your cannoli and get ready to gab about the mob classic “Goodfellas” and the mysterious case of the missing trigger warning controversy.

So, here’s the scoop – AMC decided to add a trigger warning to the film back in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter movement. The warning basically said, “Watch out, this film might offend you with its language and cultural stereotypes.” Cue the outrage from Frank Sivero, aka Frankie Carbone in the movie, who was miffed that AMC would censor the film and mess with his perfectly crafted mobster role.

But where are Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese in all of this? De Niro is out there yelling about Trump on the streets of New York like a modern-day Travis Bickle, while Scorsese is busy dissing Marvel movies. Why won’t they defend their masterpiece “Goodfellas” and stand up for artistic freedom? Are they afraid of the woke Hollywood crowd? Or maybe they’re just too busy counting their Oscars.

It’s a real head-scratcher, folks. But one thing’s for sure – trigger warnings ain’t no joke when it comes to messing with the classics. So, let’s all raise a glass to “Goodfellas” and hope that De Niro and Scorsese come out of hiding to set the record straight. And hey, share this article with your wise guys and gals who love a good mobster flick!
