Borat Lawsuit -- High Five!!!

Two anonymous plaintiffs are suing 20th Century Fox and One America Productions, claiming members of their college fraternity were interviewed to become part of the smash "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" film.

The plaintiffs -- listed as John Doe 1 and John Doe 2 -- were allegedly assured the film would not be shown in the U.S. and their identities would not be revealed.

They were both selected to appear in the movie and, according to the suit, taken "to a drinking establishment 'to loosen up' and provided alcoholic beverages." They claim they signed the movie releases after "heavy drinking."

The suit claims both men were then taken to a motor home where they were filmed, all the while "encouraged to continue drinking."

The movie features a scene in a motor home where Cohen gets drunk with three frat boys and the group watches the Pamela Anderson/Tommy Lee sex tape while inebriated.

The plaintiffs claim they suffered "humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress, loss of reputation, goodwill and standing in the community..." because the movie was indeed released in the U.S.

The suit asks for unspecified damages.

That's what college teaches you: have someone treat you to a night out, watch some porn, and then backstab the guy to leech as much money from him as possible.

What a couple of microcephalic lower primates. They're porn-watching drunkards, pissing away their university-lives on cheap distractions, and they've got 'humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional and physical distress'?

Bullshit.

This movie's just confirmed exactly what they are: petty, dim-witted twits. Their litigiousness just raises their idiocity to new heights: they are the Sir Edmund Hillary of Fuckwit Mountain, and Cohen is their Tenzin Norgay,

Trivia: Hillary and Norgay's sons both climbed Everest.

Together?

Because that'd be weird.

And a little tacky.

No, separately.

Actually, Norgay's grandson did as well now that I think of it.

He broke the law if they didn't sign before they started drinking.

What's awesome is that he didn't even have to prompt them to start ranting about minorities and Jews, they brought it up themselves.

What they said wasn't that bad, IMO, but I did skip a bit of that part.

What's awesome is that he didn't even have to prompt them to start ranting about minorities and Jews, they brought it up themselves.Which is why they are suing for the 'mental anguish' of being painted exactly they way they are. If I were a chick I would go screaming down the street "I LOVE YOU BORAT!!!"

Hmmm...guess they know what a sorority girl must feel like now.

Sorority girls don't have to sign anything, though.

Borat is awsome.


People are stupid, he isn't an anti-semite.

He's the opposite, he exposes people's stereotypes and stupidity, if anything, his charecters antics are to show the opposite.

Maybe a Consensual Sex Contract or two?

Now is this promoting anti-semetism or is it EXPOSING it?

Neither, it's a joke.
