“Dear Pio and Amedeo, you are brilliant comedians but you did a stupid thing. With a laugh you cannot bury years of discrimination: ‘ricchione’ in the south means a person who cannot procreate, it is a very heavy and offensive word, there is a boy (15 Roman Andrea Spaccacandela, ed) who always responded with a smile to this insult, then took a rope and hanged himself “. These are the words to the Ruetir with which Fabrizio Marrazzo, Gay Party for LGBT rights + Solidarity, Environmentalist and Liberal, chooses to turn to Pio and Amedeo, while the controversy rages for their monologue on the politically correct aired at ‘Felicissima sera’ on Canale 5, which closed with a very high share.
“The laughter of those who suffer the insult is not contentment but it is in order not to show themselves weak”, underlines Marrazzo, who adds: “They have committed a very serious and incorrect action. We asked AgCom to intervene, because they must be guaranteed the rights of people, you cannot pass that the insult is something banal that is dissolved with laughter. Because these phrases go to sow a hatred which then leads to isolation and depression “.
“Even personally – Marrazzo unleashes – to be called ricchione or something else, never a positive feeling, if you are living a personal situation with your partner and you feel like you call him. These are not fun things. In private you do with a friend. whatever you want, but on prime time television with 3% share is not acceptable “. To conclude, “Pio and Amedeo did a stupid thing and I hope they retrace their steps, and will not take sides with a party like Salvini who commented by saying that he gave them his solidarity”, he concludes.
