I wasn’t a fan of his Ali G character (mainly because it seemed to end up being the item it seemed intended to parody), but Borat made me admire Sacha Baron Cohen for his sheer willingness to make himself look stupid or just awkward for the sake of a joke. Which is something I always admire.
But I’ve just found out that in his latest film Bruno, he taunts members of the Westboro Baptist Church.
Oh, Mr Baron Cohen, assuming you’re on some kind of points, you will be receiving some of my money soon. I say bravo.
