Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

Here's a guy who has made a living off satirizing poor peoples, reviving the oldest and crudest homophobic and racial stereotypes about blacks, the roma, eastern europe in general and even the jews themselves.

now, his new movie 'The Dictator' is clearly aimed at the Arabs. i wonder if he is going to portray a balanced picture because people like him fuel the suspicion that many people are motivated by sectarianism than anything else.

his jokes are neither funny or clever. i remember when i watched borat i was just disgusted by him. he's just a asshole deriding others and selling tickets because of it.

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

"balanced picture"?

He's not making a documentary about arab culture. Nor is he perceived to be an authority on the issue. He's just a comedian trying to make a few bucks. Anyone who takes his work as a serious source of information is clearly misguided.

I saw the trailer for the dictator and thought it was pretty funny.

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

what's funnier is that sacha baron cohen himself is probly even more of a sectarianist than the characters he plays and the people he makes fun of

this is a man who postponed his wedding just so that his future wife could go to study Judaism in israel....

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

Sacha Baron Cohen is one of the funniest and most intelligent guys around. Borat is a hilarious movie and Da Ali G show pure genious. The Dictator's trailer seemed funny and it makes fun of all dictators out there, not Arabs .

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

This too.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Sacha Baron Cohen is an asshole

Sacha is an asshole? No, he's a comedian and he's very funny at what he does. He also has massive balls, like someone else said.

You are too touchy. You not supposed to take his stuff seriously, at all. With all due respect, get a grip.

Lol at his urn with Kim Jong Il's ashes at the Oscars. A rather dull event not worth remembering.

All in all this is more worthy than this thread itself.

i think not.

i can genuinely say all the stuff i've seen from him (admitedly not much at all since i watched that crap excuse of a film called borat...) has been shit that hasn't provoked any type of laughter in me or the people i hang around with.

you might think that i'm too serious or too touchy but i can assure you that's not the case. then again, if the type of humour that appeals you and other westerners or even western-wannabes is the type in which a guy makes fun of small communities and peoples, then by all means do laugh. i rather watch something else. thank you.

great way of reasoning

i wonder what will this website's mods like you do if i were to crack a "a black and a jew go to a bar" type of joke. hey, it's all for comedy!

it's even funnier considering you have a history for being a bit trigger-happy with the bans, if i'm allowed to say that
