Ther's worse than that shown over the years. Nearly every movie has an Irish reference. I was watching El Camino (Breaking Bad) the other night and Jessy was going to take a shower and one of the other guys says to him there's a fresh bar of Irish Spring in there for you. Irish gets mentioned a lot in movies. So I wouldn't take offense as Oscar Wilde said "There is only one thing in Life Worse Than Being Talked About, and That is Not Being Talked About"

Its a highly acclaimed movie but I take exception to its title 'The Irishman'
Its not as if we are all criminals in this country - God knows we have worked hard for every penny we have earned
But to attach criminality to Irish people per se seems like racism
I doubt if any other country would put up with this shite

The Irishman (2019) - IMDb
Horse has got a point though. Could you imagine if there was a film about a gangster called "The Nigerian"

Its about the mafia taking out Kennedy, so it could be about either Irishmen.
They should make a film about so of the other characters who were interested in whacking Kennedy.
Call one The Jew.
