Cohen Under Fire Again
BORAT star Sacha Baron Cohen has been branded a "racist, chauvinistic pig" by the Kazakh ambassador to Britain in the run up to the release of his new film. The British funnyman is public enemy number one in Kazakhstan because BORAT:CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN depicts the country as a backwater nation of misogynists, racists and anti-Semites, whose favourite drink is fermented horse urine. Ambassador ERLAN IDRISSOV claims Borat, a creation of British comedian Cohen, is heaping shame on his nation because they are an easy target. He says, "Borat's most striking features are his rudeness, ignorance, racism and chauvinism. He is a pig of a man: stupid, belligerent and charmless. In one show he asks a dating service for a girl with 'plough experience'."
