Nickelodeon’s ‘Nicky Deuce’ Movie Stirs Up Controversy With Italian Americans

Monday, May 27th, Nickelodeon will debut a new movie called “Nicky Deuce” starring GIBBY (Noah Munck) from iCarly! I’m excited, I miss iCarly.

Not everyone is excited about the new movie though. Take a look at what Italian-American advocacy group, Italian-American One Voice Coalition, had to say. They’re demanding parents to BOYCOTT this Nick movie!

One person expressed that this “trash television” is an affront to their culture, meant to “brainwash a new generation with an insidious and hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans.”

“It is beyond reprehensible that Nickelodeon would so grossly abdicate any semblance of corporate responsibility and target young children with a biased, stereotypical movie.”

They add, “We are appealing to all parents to not have their children watch this garbage.”

So what do you guys think, is it a hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans?
