British comic Sacha Baron Cohen has received a barrage of criticism for allegedly manipulating members of the public for his latest movie. BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN sees the ALI G star tour America in the guise of his blundering Kazakhstani journalist. However, the 34-year-old's pranks have come under fire for their misogynistic and anti-Semitic overtones and for fooling innocent members of the public into believing they were featuring in a serious cultural programme. GEORGE MATTHEWS MARSHALL - who was at the brunt of one of Borat's stunts - slams the funnyman's manipulation as "disgraceful" and "disgusting". He adds, "He intimated we might have favoured slavery... we were horrified." In other offending scenes Cohen - himself Jewish - spits out food from Jewish owners of a bed-and-breakfast fearing poison, while in another he tells black presidential candidate ALAN KEYES he has a "chocolate face."
