TT's Resident Ace of Base Superfan
Do we really need Sacha Baron Cohen to tell us how racist we are in 2020? OTOH, a throwback to 2006 is strangely a comforting thing. God I hate this political climate but also have a trailer.

I adored Brüno.
That was the story for Borat 1. Did he go back to the same village for Borat 2? If we're going to cancel every movie that that pissed off locals where they filmed on location, there just wouldn't be Hollywood. That's not really meant to be an excuse, but it ranks pretty low on my outrage meter all things considered.How is bamboozling and then underpaying a Romanian village mired in poverty a satire of American racism, though?
(I couldn't help but roll my eyes at them complaining about holocaust survivors when Cohen is from a family of *checks notes* holocaust survivors.)
Okay I'm trying to say this unsarcastically as possible but do none of you know any white people? From my experience the average Borat viewer both understands that the primary purpose of the character is to satirize Western ignorance and accepts Borat's portrayal of Kazakhstan at face value because it is literally their only source of information about the country
I do not think you need an outrageous racist caricature to elicit over-the-top racist statements from people. SBC as a rich English dickhead could also get them, I think!
I think he already had an even better idea than this in Who Is America with ex-Mossad anti-terrorism expert Capt. Erran Morrad, which was kind of terrifyingly effective at getting elected Republians to let their guard down.
