Well, Yeah

Sacha Baron Cohen Sued For His ‘Offensive Caricature of a Gay Man’


Who wants to guess this lawsuit will go the same way as this one? It makes you wonder whether folks sue Sacha Baron Cohen just so he’ll get more press. TMZ: “Richelle Olson has sued Cohen, NBC Universal and others claiming they told her Bruno was a celeb and would appear and call numbers at the charity bingo game she ran for the elderly in Palmdale, CA. Olson was none too happy when she saw Bruno, whom she describes as an ‘extreme, outrageous, offensive caricature of a gay man dressed in sexually revealing clothing with an Austrian accent…’ Olson alleges Bruno used ‘vulgar and offensive language’ and when she tried taking the mic from him, a ‘physical struggle ensued’ and Cohen “offensively touched, pushed and battered” her, causing her to fall to the ground.”
