British funnyman Baron Cohen has hit back at claims he hoodwinked members of the public to make his Borat movie a more shocking and controversial movie.
Several members of the public exposed as racist and anti-semitic in the film claim their actions were taken out of context, but the 35-year-old Golden Globe winner insists the film was edited fairly.
“There were two large cameras in the room. I don’t buy the argument that, ‘Oh, I wouldn’t have acted so racist or anti-semitic if I’d known this film was being shown in America.’ That’s no excuse,” he says.
Baron Cohen added: “If you saw all our footage with the gun shop owner, for example, we had a whole conversation about the right gun to use to shoot a Jew’s horns off his head.”
