Sacha Baron Cohen and actor, Hugh Laurie, were on their way to a bar in NYC when Sacha decided to play a prank as his alter ego, Borat. He went up to a stranger and said, “I like your clothings. Are nice! Please may I buying? I want have sex with it.”
The man didn’t know who he was and didn’t get the joke, so he punched him in the face. Welcome to New York. The man kept punching him in the face and Sacha yelled for him to stop. He was rescued by Hugh. The pair were coming back from Saturday Night Live where they appeared.
A source said, “Sacha couldn’t resist playing the fool as Borat, but picked on the wrong person. I guess this guy thought he was being attacked by someone unstable and lashed out. Sacha is very lucky he didn’t get a much worse beating.”
Sacha didn’t face any scars or major bruises. What a stupid ass. This is what he gets. Not everyone loves Borat and he needs to recognize it. Source
