This viral tweet about Martin Scorsese movies is enraging a lot of fans

If you want to joke about Martin Scorsese’s cinematic output on Twitter, do so at your own peril. 

That appears to be the takeaway after a tweet joking about commonalities in his movies went viral on Monday — and ended up incurring the wrath of a whole lot of fans.

Here’s the tweet, from MSNBC producer A.P. Joyce.

Questions of accuracy aside, that is pretty funny.

And it will certainly ring a bell for anyone who’s seen the likes of Casino, Goodfellas, or — most recently — The Irishman, too.

Seriously, just look at Netflix’s final trailer for latter. It ticks almost all the boxes: an elderly man looking back at his gangster past; punctuations of violence; even a shot of stuff being loaded into a trunk (0:45 seconds in) for good measure.

But despite the tweet getting over 27,000 likes at the time of writing, not everyone saw the funny side.

People were really not happy.

Some even broke down all the Scorsese movies that didn’t fit the tweet’s description.

On the one hand, Scorsese has undoubtedly had a long and varied career, and nobody could look at the likes of Shutter Island and think it matches the description in that first tweet.

But on the other, that original tweet was surely only meant as a light-hearted exaggeration. It wasn’t intended to be a factually-accurate critique of the guy’s work.

Besides, Scorsese doesn’t need that many people defending him. With all the gangster movies he’s made, the guy must know how to handle himself by now.
