'Soup Nazi' Actor Furious at Gun Maker for Using His Image to Promote Guns

'Soup Nazi' Actor Furious at Gun Maker for Using His Image to Promote Guns

“No T-shirt or Facebook image for you!”

Larry Thomas, the actor known to millions for playing the “Soup Nazi” on Seinfeld, is steaming over his image being used on both shirts and the famed social media site by a gun maker without his consent.

The “Seinfeld” star was horrified to see his image — along with the phrase “No Serbu for You!” — being used to help promote Tampa-based Serbu’s campaign against the ban on the sale of defined assault rifles in New York. The company, founded by mechanical engineer Mark Serbu, is known for producing the $7,000, BFG-50 semi-automatic 51.5-inch sniper rifle, one weapon banned under the 2013 NY Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act.

Thomas, who is in favor of gun control, possesses the rights to the Soup Nazi imagery, and the gun manufacturer tells The New York Post it will abide by Thomas’s wishes to remove his Seinfeld character from its marketing push.
