Ali G in da dog house! Hoaxed Sarah Palin hits back at ‘sick’ Sacha Baron Cohen
SHOWBIZ prankster Sacha Baron Cohen has claimed a new high-profile victim… Sarah Palin.
But the former governor of Alaska failed to see the funny side as she claimed the British comic posed as a wounded military veteran to fool her.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Cohen, 46, aka Ali G and Borat, has been secretly filming a satirical comedy, Who Is America? for a year.
Hitting back on Facebook, Palin, 54, alleged Cohen used a wheelchair to convince her he was a disabled US veteran when she agreed to an interview.
‘Yup — we were duped,’ she wrote. ‘Ya’ got me, Sacha. Feel better now? I join a long list of American public personalities who have fallen victim to the evil, exploitive, sick “humor” of the British “comedian” Sacha Baron Cohen. I sat through a long “interview” full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm — but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out.’
Cohen’s reps have been asked to comment.
Who Is America? airs on Channel 4 at 10pm on Monday.
