'Goodfellas' Actor Feels 'Insulted' by AMC Trigger Warning

In a new interview, Frank Siver, who played the hilarious stone-cold killer Frankie Carbone in the iconic mob movie, claims that the warning is an insult.

AceShowbiz - "Goodfellas" actor Frank Sivero has a lot to say after AMC added a trigger warning to the iconic mafia movie that also starred Joe Pesci. In a new interview, the actor made it clear that he's not happy with the warning, calling it an insult.

Speaking to TMZ, Frank, who played the hilarious stone-cold killer Frankie Carbone in the movie, complained, "I'm kind of a little bit perturbed in a way that AMC even cuts the movie completely." He added, "You know, you don't hear the language, they delete the language."

The actor further said, "So why they're so upset of a movie that's known throughout the planet earth in every language you could think? And all the leaders of the world have seen the movie, including 'Godfather 1' and 'Godfather 2', which I'm a part of."

"But, you know, staying with 'Goodfellas', I'm a little perturbed because thank God, I was able to do my thing by improvisation or by bringing some dark humor into these people's lives and not make them just make a violence scene like a horror movie," he continued. "You will have dreams of it. You know, you're not gonna have dreams - I just gonna remember what the coffee party you're gonna remember. Me warming up the cop, you're gonna remember me instead of seeing that. What's his name? Getting shot and getting killed."

He divulged, "I created that, I made those moments real or whatever was going on, to take the attention away from that gruesomeness to make those people more likable - and that's why they're likable. It's an insult. I created my own character."

AMC received serious online backlash after issuing a warning over outdated stereotypes in addition to violence and language for the Martin Scorsese-directed movie. The warning read, "This film includes language and/or cultural stereotypes that are inconsistent with today's standards of inclusion and tolerance and may offend some viewers."

Of the decision, a rep from the network told New York Post, "In 2020, we began adding advisories in front of certain films that include racial or cultural references that some viewers might find offensive."
