Sacha Baron Cohen crashed at a right-wing event in Washington while posing as a racist country music singer, where she encouraged the crowd to sing along to the lyrics about liberals who were “cut” or “injected with the flu”. Wuhan, “viral images show.
Dressed as a pot-bellied singer in denim overalls and a cowboy hat, comedian “Borat” tricked organizers of Saturday’s event by militia group “Three Percenters” by producing a big-money donation at the last minute, according to reports and organizers.
The professional prankster then took the stage at Olympia, causing the audience to sing along with extreme lyrics, and organizers said a team of armed security guards prevented them from disconnecting.
The images show Cohen singing about former President Barack Obama, coronavirus expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, CNN, and “mask bearers” injected with the “Wuhan Flu.”
He also wished the same for the “sushi eaters,” and worse still for the “Chinese,” singing that they should “bomb them like in World War II.”
Going on with the World Health Organization and journalists, he was cheered by suggesting that they should “cut them like the Saudis do,” apparently a sick reference to the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“Hillary Clinton, what shall we do? Lock her up like we used to do, “he sang, joking that Bill Gates’s manhood was” micro soft. “
Event organizer Matt Marshall said they “tried to unplug” in horror at the “incredibly racist song,” but said Cohen’s team included “four armed security systems in the generator, so we couldn’t even cut the power. “
When they finally “rushed the stage,” the “Who’s America?” Prankster and his entourage fled in an waiting ambulance that pretended to be on an emergency call, Marshall said in a video interview.
Other images suggest that Cohen returned, pretending to be a video journalist while wearing a gray wig and beard.
“They spent a lot of money to make us look bad,” said Marshall, later tweeting, “Thanks for the publicity. I can’t wait for the video of me throwing Cohen offstage.”
The Three Percentives chapter, a group founded by former militiaman Michael Brian Vanderboegh, said it was “horrified” by the comedian “clown face” that sparked “disgust.”
However, some on Twitter were less convinced.
“If it was so ‘racist’ to them, why were people clapping until they realized he was trolling? Hmm, “asked one.
The group insisted that it has members from “all races, religions and creeds” and Cohen’s “bad taste and demeanor represents the antithesis” of the group’s ideals.
the Southern Poverty Law Center it lists the Three Percenters as a group of anti-government militias, saying the name refers to the “dubious historical claim that only 3 percent of American settlers fought against the British during the War of Independence.”
Cohen has not yet commented on the appearance. Some speculated that it might have been a trick for a new series of “Who is America?” but Showtime has not commented, Variety said.
