'Sopranos' Star Calls In a Hit Over Miss Cali

4/22/2009 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who played Johnny Sack is so pissed off about the Miss California controversy -- he called in to the TMZ tipline to unload!

Johnny Sack - Play audio

According to our first celebrity voicemail, Vince Curatola is furious with certain people (blogger Perez Hilton, in particular) for bashing Miss California Carrie Prejean after she voiced her opinion on gay marriage -- calling the attacks "disgusting."

Curatola even issued Perez a challenge -- "I wish he'd come after me that way."

Perez Hilton is a loser and an idiot...i myself don't believe in gay marriage..it is wrong and disgusting...marriage should be between a man and a woman..kudos to Miss. Cali Carrie Prejean..in my book she is THE REAL Miss USA and should have won the crown..shame on the Pagent if she didn't win just because of her beliefs! I stand behind you Miss Cali AKA Miss USA!

10. What people fail to realize is that Miss America is supposed to be a non-biased representative of AMERICA - she shouldn't have voiced HER opinion and biblical feelings so loudly. She could have worded her "speech" to be more accepting of ALL HUMANS w/different views. Miss America should be all-encompassing and accept EVERYONE b/c that's what AMERICA is a bunch of different people w/different preferences living in semi-harmony.

She should have just been a bit more PC about her answer.

She said it was her opinion that marriage is between a man & a woman. You idiots think you can make people afraid to voice opinions but it's not going to happen. Quit trying to force your liberal ways on us heterosexuals. If God wanted same sex to be together, he would have given you two sex organs so you could produce your own babies.

Perez wanted to USE her answer to further HIS agenda. It backfired in his face because she gave her honest opinion. He thought she was going to do the usual PC crap that everyone in Hollyweird does in order to get somewhere. If he can't handle the fact that not everybody feels the same way as he does, he shouldn't ask the question. I wish he'd disappear, as well as all the other freaks who think we should only speak what we're programmed to say.

Perez asked her what her opion was on gay marriage, she said that people can do what they want with their own choices and than expressed HER own view on gay marriage. If he was gonna be such a bitch toward her anwser than he should've posed the question in a different way so that she wasn't giving her personal view on things. remember people just because others do not agree with the way we live our lives as long as the only express their opinion it is just that a viewpoint, thats what makes our country beautiful the right to speak freely.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that expressly prohibits the United States Congress from making laws "respecting an establishment of religion" or that prohibit the free exercise of religion, infringe the *freedom of speech*, infringe the freedom of the press, limit the right to peaceably assemble, or limit the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Good for you Vince. If gays and lesbians were meant to marry, they would also be able to naturally procreate, which they can't. It's sad that it now is socially unaccetable to speak an opinion if it isn't leftist.

Obama said the same thing- that marriage should be between a man and a woman.....yet I have yet to hear the same kind of name calling as is being done to Miss Cal. And where are the woman groups now? All Americans have a right to their opinion, even when it is not what the intolerant far left agrees with. Perez needs grow up and shut his filthy mouth up. Why the Miss America Pagent would pick that kind of no talent to judge talent ,is beyond understanding.

hahahaha!    

I'm sorry why is it that she has the right to her opinion and to speak out her bigotted beliefs and yet others can't speak their opinion about what she said? Can't have it both ways people ....

I am glad to see so many people supporting the Miss A contestent. I too am sick of gay and lesbians (like Ellen Degeneres) pretending they are so good and accepting of everyone UNTIL they disagree with them and then they act all high and mighty.

Hey Truth. Marriage NEVER had anything to do with procreating idiot. It had to do with men claiming women as their property! I guess this means that people who don't choose to have children or are infertile shouldn't be allowed to marry either, huh? And what about all the little bastards running around these days?

Miss California holds the same position on this issue as President Barack Obama. I'd say Miss California and her views are a perfect representative of America, from President Obama on down.

TO WHY BOTHER:
because she is respond with class and dignity and not calling people stupid bitches like Perez is. She said she doesn't mean to offend anyone but Perez obviously does. He thought she would say what he wanted to hear and can't take it when someone disagrees with him.
