"Sopranos" Fans Whack Creator's Wiki Entry

6/12/2007 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We all know that a lot of "Sopranos" fans thought that the series ended on a terrible note -- but taking a hit out on creator David Chase's Wikipedia entry? Oh marone!

TMZ was checking out Chase's Wiki page this morning, and noticed that the first line read, "David Chase ... is a homosexual American television writer." Now we're all for the gays, but the sexual-orientation thing seemed odd, since Chase has been married to the same woman for over twenty years.

Well, it turns out that the entry was "vandalized" by some Wiki thugs, which then caused the Wikipedia folks to clamp down immediately, disallowing any changes to the page. Wikipedia didn't comment on the changes in Chase's entry, but it won't be available again for editing until next Monday.

Yesterday, in an interview with a New Jersey paper, Chase said that he wasn't trying to "[mess] with" fans, just trying to entertain them with the provocative ending, which concluded the series in nearly ten seconds of black screen.

I wasn't paying attention to my kids during the last episode. When it went blank I thought my kids had turned the power off to my room. I went out screaming at them!! They kept saying they didn't know what I was talking about. I watched the West Coast feed and realized my/Davids mistake. I'm still paying for calling them liars (lol)!!!!

No ending would've been good enough for me because I didn't want it to end. I love the Sopranos and will deeply miss the opportunity to peek in on thier lives...good entertainment is SO hard to find these days!

It was a BRILLIANT last episode. David, not everyone hated it. Your true fans, and the smart population, LOVED IT.

response to #2. DAMN! Now I'm going to go back and watch all the episodes again. If this is true, it makes the ending was even more brilliant then I originally thought.

. I have been watching the show since season 1 and grew to love the characters and have an attachment. I felt so sick when Adrianna was killed, the depressing episode stayed with me for the rest of the night. I love Tony. I don't want to see him get whacked or grieve over his family. I didn't want him to turn into an informant or go into hiding. I like that he was what we thought he was all along. There was no moving away, new babies being born, death (well of a beloved character anyway), no winning the lottery. It stayed true to itself. If you don’t like that ending well then you can use one of your crazy theories to make it work for you. David Chase is a genius! I love you Howard!

For the record, it's not "marone" it's "Madonna". The Jersey/Sicilian wannabe pronunciations SOUNDS like ma-rone. Like "American" sounds like Marry-gan.

I'm just glad this show and "Friends" are both OVER. Bring back Beverly Hills 90210 or Melrose Place!! Now those were good ones!

The ending was crap....and I love how everyone "knows" what the ending was supposed to mean. The fact is if your not David Chase you don't know crap, you just think you know!I felt Chase whizzed on all of the fans of the past 7 years by having that ending plain and simple
