You can bet Sarah Palin won’t be watching Sacha Baron Cohen’s new show.
The former Governor of Alaska accused Cohen of pulling an unethical prank on her for his new show “Who is America?”
“I sat through a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s [sic] disrespect and sarcasm — but finally had enough and literally, physically removed my mic and walked out,” Palin posted on Facebook. “The disrespect of our US military and middle-class Americans via Cohen’s foreign commentaries under the guise of interview questions was perverse.”
“Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country,” she continued. “Truly sick.”
But, Cohen has a rebuttal. Or, more accurately, Cohen’s latest alter ego, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr, Ph.D has a response for Palin, posted to Twitter on Thursday.
Palin also took aim at Showtime and CBS for motivating Cohen to press forward with the prank, which will supposedly air on his new show.
The politician stamped her statement with a scathing sentence: “By the way, my daughter thinks you’re a piece of ****, Sacha.”
The “Borat” and “Da Ali G Show” star’s new program “Who is America?” airs July 15 on Showtime.
