More bad news for Sacha Baron Cohen.
First his summer film “Bruno” was met with shock and disappointment. Then he was accused of stretching the definition of “terrorist leader,” when he described Ayman Abu Aita as one. And now he’s been threatened by the very militant group that Abu Aita is affiliated with, the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades, which he tried to get to kidnap him.
“We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man. The movie was part of a conspiracy against the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades,” according to a statement from the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades that was published Monday.
A Jewish conspiracy?
Unfortunately for Baron Cohen, no one is jockeying to impersonate Bruno like they did Borat.
