I’m feeling really awful for Borat and his creator who are in every kind of trouble from every possible direction.
Despite Cohen’s seemingly sincere denials and the earnest defense mounted by his passionate fans, BoratLove is losing the battle to logic.
Afterall intention is, sadly, an outdated and ineffective excuse.
(See comments to my earlier post.)
Those gunning for Borat include
The Anti-Defamation League
Official complaints in Kazakhstan
The old Jewish “shape-shifters"
Insulted Roma villagers
Drunk Frat boys
More horrible than any of this are the K-Fed jokes.
