California restaurant uses ‘GODFATHER’ quote on anti-mask billboard

Fox News:

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 billboard — which uses font similar to the iconic 1972 film poster — says “Leave the mask, take the cannoli,” according to a photo from KTLA taken on Monday.

The line is derived from a famous quote in “The Godfather,” which says: “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.”

In August, the restaurant started selling T-shirts with the same message on the back, according to KTLA.

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.
