‘Sacha Baron Cohen is a prankster’


General Culture

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to sue Sasha Baron Cohen, the guy behind Borat (if you have not seen the movie yet, do not miss it!), and I was wondering who that someone would be. Turns out the first are a bunch of fraternity kids: “The plaintiffs — listed as John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 — were allegedly assured the film would not be shown in the U.S. and their identities would not be revealed.” (source) Yeah right! “The plaintiffs claim they suffered ‘humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress, loss of reputation, goodwill and standing in the community…’” Hmmm, to avoid future “mental anguish” and “loss of reputation”, maybe just don’t drink like a horse at a watering hole and then explain how minorities are exploiting America and how you want slavery back - I think that should do it.
