California restaurant uses ‘Godfather’ quote on anti-mask billboard
This California restaurant sure doesn’t like the state’s mask mandate.
Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, an Italian restaurant in Huntington Beach, Calif., recently put up a “Godfather”-themed billboard to show its opposition to masks.
The line is derived from a famous quote in “The Godfather,” which says: “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.”
Basilico’s appears to have posted that message for the first time on its Instagram page in July.
In August, the restaurant started selling T-shirts with the same message on the back, according to KTLA.
Basilico’s did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
The “Godfather” quote isn’t the only anti-mask message that Basilico’s has posted online.
The restaurant has made its opinion clear, using the hashtag: #NoMasksAllowed on several posts.
Basilico’s has also openly challenged Dr. Anthony Fauci on social media with several posts including an image of a line drawn through a caricature of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director.
According to KTLA, Basilico’s gained attention earlier this year after it hung a “Don’t tread on me” flag outside the restaurant.
