Dirty Pool Cleaned Up


The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has won a victory against Oregon-based Rockwell Billiards, which had introduced a pool cue endorsed by The Sopranos star Joseph R. Gannascoli, who played a gay character beaten to death and sodomized with a pool cue in the TV series. The cue was advertised as "A Cue to Die For." Following protests by GLAAD, Rockwell agreed to withdraw the product. In a statement, GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano said, "Rockwell Billiards has done the right thing by no longer selling a product that many deemed offensive and insensitive."

Perhaps Jodie Foster could shill a pinball machine just like the one she was raped on in the The Accused.
